And now a word from our sponsor.
I'm not much into cars but I was quite taken with this little number. It reminds me of one of my all-time favourite automobiles, the Nash Rambler. "Beep beep! Beep beep! It's horn went beep beep beep!" Anyone other than me remember that golden oldie? My family used to go for burgers at the then drive-in A&W, as opposed to the now drive-thru. It seemed so exotic to have a waitress roller skate out to the car bearing small trays laden with fat-loaded foods. The little trays were hooked to the edge of the side windows, outside the car. The windows had to be rolled to just the right height.
At another burger place, the White Spot, long metallic trays were inserted across the whole interior width of the car, from driver's window to passenger's, and hooked into the sill. It was a bit like eating from a trough, though.
After this fine dining experience, we would often "go for a spin" in the car, usually with me standing up in the back, leaning over the front seat for a better view, while my dad twiddled the radio dial and my mum smoked a Black Cat cigarette.
Those were the days!
