Rumble alone

Put Mom in the back. So I can't hear her back-seat driving.

Will never understand

how the fairer sex could ever get into one of these things with grace and aplomb.

[Grace would be riding up front with Aplomb. - Dave]

Out-of-it Feeling

It's good for kids together but you definitely are not part of the adult conversation back there, having ridden in one of those seats.

Mother-in-law's lament

"If my daughter had married that nice Bob Gunderson, I'd be riding in a Cadillac now!"

Nice

I love the car. Big wide running boards, and cool rumble seat. It's also nice to see the building has been preserved with a nice cover added to the upper open area.

Question

Has does one even climb into that rumble seat? Get a good running jump?

[Cars with rumble seats had steps provided at various places on the curb side of the vehicle. -tterrace]

That's 2150 Washington Street
