    Anyone remember the Crysler/Simca import deal in about 1970 or so?
    Decent cheap cars with NO backup from Chrysler, typical corporate hubris.

    I buy and sell well trained riding mules and American Mammoth Jack Stock.

      While driving along the beach in WA. state one dark night with the lights off we accidentely drove it into the ocean. Yes alcohol was involved. I'll never forget sitting there with the headlights on,we turned them on after we went in, and watching the waves breaking over the roof. We got it out and running, but it finally died a couple of weeks later after we drove it from Mt. Shasta to Long Beach without breaks. We'd downshift through the gears to slow down, then jump out and grab the doors to stop. Got a lot of signs of the cross as we pulled out of gas stations. Good times.
