In reply to # 3887856 by dogeddie That's interesting Richard. But do you think the same concept applies with the very "un dragster - like" torque of the midget? Or was the the PO a single fat guy. eye popping smiley

<laughing>

I'm thinking If we are talking degrees the same principle might apply.
Ones first inclination might be to get a hefty ride along passenger and let her weight balance things out. I guess just by the definition alone, that in itself would eliminate any bachelor lean! But in my experience, I'm thinking it may be cheaper and less trouble in the long run to just deal with the springs!

So I should find a fat girl as a test subject? Geez, where in Wisconsin would I find that?

dogeddie, that one made me laugh! grinning smiley This phenomenon showed itself on the driver's seat that came with my Purple Rat Midget project a few years ago. All the padding was flattened on the back and butt areas but the vinyl was perfect. It even looked like the previous owner might have rested his big fat arm on the tunnel while driving. I could just imagine a big, stocky elbow might have rest on the bulkhead behind the seat. A rather heavy person had been reclining here for so long that the seat adjuster froze in the far back position and the seat was crushed against that bulkhead.

Lol! That just cracks me up. How the hell did he get out of the car? Maybe that's why he reclined there so long!

Andy, I'd think with the long cold winters that you guys have, that would be standard equipment in Wisconsin....added bonus, shade for the summer!

Maybe he or she had the girth but not the width? Hey if John Candy can do it, anyone can!

David,

My apologies to Kurt for defamation! David, for me, Graham Parker and Elvis Costello have a similar sound although Costello can be more dramatic. I didn't know Denny Laine still toured. I've got a cassette(!) of her singing with Paul McCartney back in 1979. Suddenly I'm feeling old and there's nothing wrong with being a fan of The Seekers......

Regards,

Roger
