My first car had one of these, anyone else recognize this?

Somehow, people since 2005 have "issues."

I love helping people with problems. Biggest problem many people have is, trying to change the English language. "Issues" are NOT problems.

That is a tastefully done interior.

But view the size of the seats. Side to side. Small seats. Big fat console.

I wish our old cars had sexy cluster gauges like new cars do. Wow, people just really didn't care 10 years ago!

Amen. I'd rather have my arm around a girl then a shifter that's only used for parking or reverse.

Kids...you just keep thinking that way.

Somehow, people since 2005 have "issues."

I love helping people with problems. Biggest problem many people have is, trying to change the English language. "Issues" are NOT problems.

Close, it's second generation, a 1965. '66 to '69 had a black plastic knob instead of the T-handle. 1960-'64 had a plain-Jane black lever under the bottom edge of the cluster.
