Nice! Can't say he's biased - one GM, one Ford, and one Chrysler.

When I was a kid, we took a vacation trip from Michigan to Florida in a '53 DeSoto Firedome 4 door. It didn't have power steering and Mom's wrist got "wounded" from having to do all the driving. Dad had just gotten out of the hospital and wasn't able to drive yet. Fortunately my Aunt and Uncle went with us in their '53 DeSoto Firedome 2 door hardtop but they had power steering and once in awhile one of them would help out with the driving of our car.
