Not so old photo of bailing out, with reason:
Not to worry. 10 HP Stanley's do that all the time. Pat took me for a ride in that car and made 75 mph. Felt safe and comfortable at that speed to me.
Though Ford pioneered the concept,
it was Aston-Martin that truly
perfected the Mother-in-Law seat.
Looks a like it would be a little rough on Hemorrhoids Ralph!
"Wadda you mean - NO breaks in reverse?"
So tell me, was Pat's seat wet?
I forget the description he sent with the pic.
Pat's pretty used to bailing out. A few weeks ago on the Skagit HCCA tour he bailed again when a steam line blew. Of course that didn't stop him. He had it repaired at the side of the road in 1 1/2 hour and completed the 4 day tour with no other problems. Check out this link for the pictures
Thanks for the link, Ken. Note the condensing Stanley for sale, listed as originally bought by a Mr. Schuster. George Schuster was the driver of the winning Thomas in the 1908 NY-Paris race. Just coincidence?
I think George Schuster had more sense than that....
