I don't know if that's always true. I'm thinking of a '61 Falcon I had...
#83 of 91 Yeah, that reminds me

of the 57 Volvo 444 I had briefly, with the loose steering gear. Yeah, the engine sounded willing enough, but oh, those brakes!

Well, you know, old drum brakes, and not very big ones at that. But a 544 is more fun to drive than a P1800 in my opinion, because the P1800 driving position is so bad and the nose is so heavy.
#85 of 91 I noticed that on the 1800

I saw at my friend's business. You sat right on the floor, and felt like you weren't high enough to see that well. Very awkward feeling. I really wondered why the guy would spend so much money on that car.

Ah, you could ask that of so many people with so many cars.

According to one reputable web site, Mr. Irv Gordon was up to 1,998,200 miles on his '66 P1800 as of Feb. 10. Now isn't that something? A soon-to-be 2 million mile car.

Does it still move under its own power or is Irv pushing it?
Feb 17, 2002 (12:16 pm)
I don't know.

And I honestly don't know if Irv's car can go another 100k miles or so. It ought to have been retired!
