I have heard there was alot of complaints about the bedroom sized backseats, these weren't coming from the youths mind you.
That is why they devovled into the compact, just enough room to sit size. Might also explain why I have one of those rolling boudoirs.

Car Insurance doesn't cover "Accidents" that happen in the back seat.
Check your policy! . Jeff

One of the disadvantages of double dates is that if you are the owner driver you get the front seat. In the A popping the gear lever out gives you more room ! Karl

Big back seats have their disadvantages. A friend owns a 1930 Pierce Arrow 139" wheel base sedan. The back seat is so big that even if you got a girl back there you might not be able to catch her!

A FordBarner from years ago posted this original poster in a message and wanted to know if it was valuable. Naturally it was and he printed up a few repops. I don't know what he got for the original, but I've got two of the repops somewhere.

Somebody from Vermont emailed me and said he had sent it to me years ago.Sounds right,it was in a folder with pictures of a roadster pickup he sent me.I don't know if he got it off Fordbarn or put it up on there.I would like to have a big poster sized version of it though.
