    Sounds like my first car…

    Heard a comedian once describing the heating system in a 1960’s VW MicroBus while driving in an typical upstate NY dead of winter (zero degrees F with 18 inches of snow on the way outside): Go into a refrigerated meat locker and strip yourself completely. Wait ten minutes, then set your right foot on fire.

    A Plugger’s house is the same way. You have to jiggle the handle on the toilet so it will stop, the one light switch in the den doesn’t do anything, the bedroom door sticks…..

    My brother had a car with air conditioning… there was a hole in the floor!

    Drove from Oregon to California one February in a VW powered dune buggy. The heater worked perfectly…as long as you wanted to heat the air behind the vehicle! Along about Medford I couldn’t feel anything below my knees…

    My 1966 beetle was the last model of 6-volts. The windshield wipers were 2-speed only because they were much slower when the headlights were on.
    Still, I loved that car for 21 years.

    Pluggers take until 5-14-13 to move into the 21st century, and finally change their mailing address to e-mail.

    I had a Yugo with a large hole under the driver’s seat. When the starter went kaput and I couldn’t find a replacement: I started the car Fred Flintstone style!!

    Had a truck with a modified gear shift that was made from the shaft of a golf club

    Worked fine but I had to yell “Fore!” before I put it in gear

    all 4 of our 25-35 year old cars have their “quirks”; it just gives them “character”!!!

    I miss my ’61 Karmen Ghia. I got one quart of oil per 100 miles.

    My van currently needs to have the driver side window fixed as it came off the track last summer. I only have the passenger side window that works electrically. All the rest are manuals and it’s a pain to open them.

    My old Corolla with roll-up windows is reliable. I don’t have to worry about any of that stuff.

    Used to drive my sisters 61 ford, and the windshield wipers would slow down when you would step on the gas…so when you turned left across an inter. they would stop completely…sure was fun in the pouring rain.
