Iconic American vehicles
59 Chevrolet Biscayne (sp) with a slushy three (maybe) speed automatic transmission, a tired 283 V-8 and tail fins that actually lifted the weight off the rear tires at high speeds.
Power nothing, and the only thing that really worked right was the vacuum tube radio. Bench seats and a steel dashboard big enough you could spread a road map out on top of it.
The only good thing about that beast is that it was basically unkillable. It took a solid tee-bone hit and saved my life. The other car was totaled. I drove the beast home.
