After sleeping in the car, the Wife "might" refuse to extricate him from it It would be WORSE, if it were a TUDOR
Worst night I ever had was sleeping in the NARROW back seat of a '46 Ford Convertible. I lost the "toss", for the front seat. Next morning, the battery was DEAD, Gary slept ALL night, with his left foot on the BRAKE Pedal--NLOL
I always carried an Old tire, for emergency pushing. Tied it on the back & the 5th car that came by the parking lot, hollered, "Need a push"?
