But the best car I ever owned was a 64 Rambler, 2-door &#39;businessman&#39;s sedan,&#39; built I suppose so that itinerant salesmen could fold down the entire front bench seat and sleep in the car - saving the cost of a motel - while not a salesman of any form I did on more than one occasion fold that seat down. For sleep. I assure you.fhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14144213012574028140noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2424256018460699447.post-34015763973208484272010-12-14T10:15:11.592-06:002010-12-14T10:15:11.592-06:00wow we were 10C today seems like the world is upsi...wow we were 10C today seems like the world is upside down..<br /><br /> I have always loved VW buses.. my daughter had a very old one held together with duct tape and gum that she drove across Canada ( BC to NB)to our place a few years ago.. needed a complete overhaul but it sure was cute...Gwen Buchananhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13410235558740636534noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2424256018460699447.post-68423387141304775322010-12-14T07:24:21.055-06:002010-12-14T07:24:21.055-06:00A VW airship trip to a warm island with a convivia...A VW airship trip to a warm island with a convivial crew and all the supplies needed for an extended stay is a worthy dream on a brisk winter day.John Romeo Alphahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01289456379789026152noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2424256018460699447.post-39497845856986561572010-12-14T02:23:37.937-06:002010-12-14T02:23:37.937-06:00I had a 73 bus with a/c!
