Last Call- It's All in Your Perspective

We won the war because our ships were bigger
We won the war because our ships were bigger

A pair of mid-’70s two-door, nominally five-passenger, coupes for your pleasure- one an example of taut German efficiency, and the other of unbridled American prosperity.

    I'll take the door on the right, Bob.

    It's not the bloat of the boat, it's the actions of the captain.

      Everybody loves a good Volvo! Look…even the grille emblem on that Ford is trying to escape to the greener pastures of the Swedish love machine!

      That's funny, I didn't think the mustang was that wide. Fuzzy? Why did you park like an ass? and what did you have for lunch that day? Don't think we'd miss the styrofoam container on your dash.

        1. Partly because the 'Stang driver expected no one to park near him, and partly to show off just how wide those damn things are. I wasn't there long and was careful not to damage the Mustang.
        2. I actually don't remember what kind of sandwich it was. I wanted to say it was a Reuben, but I remember for a fact that it wasn't. There were sweet-potato fries and a pickle involved, though.

      No Lambda Sond badge?

        Sadly, no – they stopped putting those on sometime in the early '80s. My buddy's '85 didn't come with one, and I've never seen an '86-up model with one, so I assume it didn't last long into the '80s. I'm told they began in early '77.

    I have to admit, if you told me that me and three of my friends were going to have to travel from the northen most tip of Alaska straight through to the south most point of Florida and you handed me the keys to both of these cars I'd be tossing the BMW keys back at you. Caddy motor/drivetrain and a soft top? Any one who thinks it'd be fun to do it in that little Bimmer is insane or staunchly german.

      It'd be damn fun in either, but you bet I'd take the Cadillac. It's the better highway cruiser by far, while the BMW would be a superior city or back-road driver.

    The BMW is suitible for a drive on a back country road, while the Cadillac is suitible for a drive through Bat Country.

      Zing! The Bimmer just looks so smug. The 'Lac screams road trip!

      I see what you did there and my avatar gave you a clicky.

    I'll take the Boss Hog Caddy for 500 please. The Beemer is nice too, but the Caddy is just too pimptastic.
