Hmmm, shows how much they knew -- then and now, I'd be willing to bet!

I don't think I like it for any more than that. ;0)

In our little northern village we had a few cars - one of them was a VW bug. What I remember about the car was every once in a while it would stop, everyone would pile out, yank out the back seat, put the fire out that the engine had started on the back seat, put the back seat back, pile back in and off they'd go again.
