Default Re: Rumble Seat vs. trunk values

People around my rural home used to laugh & refer to the rumble seat as the "Mother-In-Law" seat.

This was at a time when our front road was a dusty gravel road & our paved highway was 11 miles away to the right & 21 miles away to the left.

Lots of dust & lots of rain in our area -- in a rumble seat, one got totally covered in dust during dry weather & got thoroughly soaked when it rained.

Appears people don't mention too much about mothers-in-law too often any more.
