Eh, that’s a myth. I am not talking about a circa 1955 model. As for the car I have, the little one (old well maintained Miata) is a pretty damn efficient commuter car, but only for short men. I wouldn’t try to fit anybody tall or “heavy” into it, they’re just not designed to carry those people.
Miatas are cute. I remember when they came out.
I drive a 15-passenger van.
