The 1942 Super coupes adopted the appealing Sedanette fastback style that had been the sensation of 1941 on Century and Special. New wider and lower bodies were offered and "Airfoil" front fenders that flowed into the lines of the rear fenders were introduced on convertibles and sedanette models. The Super had new front fender trim featuring parallel chrome strips. Also featured for 1942 was a handsome new grille with a lower outline and thin vertical strips. A feature shared with other Buicks was a new interior air intake positioned near the front center grille that eliminated the old cowl-level ventilator.

When the 1967 Austin Mini Mark ll came to market, consumers were quick to find that the unintended result of this short wheel-base was a car with nimble, go-kart handling.
The adventures and foolishness of youth. Everyone has that childhood friend whom their wife disapproves. I would imagine I have been that for a few of my lifelong friends — natch. I had such a friend; his name was Marcus. We had a rather wild weekend up at Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, in a car very […]
