Lust did you say?

I frequent an automotive forum where a new poster named "Spanky" complained that his vehicle would not "turn on" without "plugging in" his smartphone charger.

Then he disappeared.   I cannot tell if the thread is a troll because "Spanky" was insufficiently forthcoming.   But if it was, it was a 'terrific troll' as it continued long after Spanky left the building.
 The "Automotive Forum" where I hang frequently has new posters come in all the time asking pertainent questions about their particular problemWe then all respond with fairly expert  advice. With sometimes interesting debates about the subject matter. Going on for maybe 2 pages long. All without the original poster sometimes never coming back again. I dubbed it the R.(amcharger) C.(entral) Syndrone.

You can't shave with a car because it's way too heavy to pick up even for a really strong dude.
Maybe they could install a razor device in the seat so when you sit on it it it shaves your cloaca 
or something. But you want to be careful that it doesn't hash your credenza. That's all I can think of.

Another VW bug conversion.  Mid to late 70's.  It was more about the rear interior than anything else.  That and fun to drive.

I built a car model of that back when I built car models.
Now I build real cars... way more expensive.

Citroen DS, the floating goddess!

Always fascinating when the car slowly rises after starting it until it has reached its final travel height. In a DS you almost float across the street.

A friend of mine owned several of those, among them a station wagon, and a black hearse, back in the 1970s.
Need I say which one we preferred riding in, lighting spliffs en route to the next party?
 

My aunt had one of those in Billings, Montana. When it worked (caveat caveat) it was pretty fun. There's a long barren stretch of highway between here and there that gets some wicked frost heaves... at high speed it would buck you right off, but that thing handled the rollers really well. 
 

Sinking into their back-seats always has been the ultimate sofa-experience. Riding like 'God in France'. - Surely missing this in any and most all cars these days!

Beamer seats - I love driving BMW's - are always way too small for me (Bavarians seem to build for smaller folks, not mentioning Porsche, never tried their 4WD).
It hurts in the long run... so I rather keep walkin' these days, as the old-timer that I am, with aches a-plenty in my bones, fondly remembering the 'Floating Goddess', as it were.

Of course, Germans are the best drivers in the world - at least in their self-assessment. But it wasn't always like that. In the golden fifties all hell broke loose on the streets. The free ride into the economic miracle, all too often ended in the junkyard. Total traffic collapse was predicted for the 1960s.

Horn and full throttle - how Germans learned to drive... 

Hupe und Vollgas - wie die Deutschen Autofahren lernten
