My dad had a Merc 190 that he loved. It had a strange three-on-the-tree standard transmission, a barber-pole visual cue on the speedo to tell you to shift, light blue matching vinyl upholstery/paint, and a 1960s Blaunpunt that only received music transmitted from the Depression.
THis is a nice roundup of Fathers' cars. I hope my kids remember me and my german car fetish. We all need good memories of our fathers. http://jalopnik.com/5566975/ten-dadmobiles-that-made-us-love-cars/gallery/?skyline=true&s=i
Happy birthday, Dominic. Miss you.
