Quote from: WalterEG on September 04, 2012, 06:45:55 pmMr Moon was my teacher in third class and again for part of 5th class. He had a big black Humber Super Snipe which I would gaze at when I arrived at school, convinced that one day the Queen was going to wave from it. Such grand elegance!Later I had a somewhat pneumatically blessed girl friend who had the words SUPER and SNIPE printed in psychedelic ovals over her scented orbs and the optical illusion was breathtaking.Car interiors seemed somehow more hand-made back then.

Quote from: chrisc on September 06, 2012, 09:12:24 amI had a similar car to Walter's Chrysler though his is a few years older than mine was. I had a 1949 Chrysler New Yorker, straight 8 Fluid Drive transmission. This was a very unique transmission in that you used the column mounted, three speed manual transmission in the normal sense, shifting properly until you reached about 35 mph. At this point, upon stopping for a light or whatever, you no longer had to shift the transmission but instead, as you accelerated forward, you would listen for the hydraulics to "shift" the transmission up to the next gear, ease off the gas, allow the shift to take place then accelerate to the next shift point. This was my first car and I was quite popular because we could stuff two couples in the trunk when heading to the Drive-In movie. Trust me, there was ample room for two couples in the back seat for whatever silliness they wanted to partake in.
