cool things with wheels since 2006
Nothing new in the auto world, 70 years later, the tweel
Years ago I saw an original Ad for 1932 Fords.It showed the "Fordor Sedan" and the "Tudor Sedan".Knowing it was to appease the illiterate at a time when it was a common problem. I figured it was just Two Door and Four Door made simple.To this day...There are still a sizable number of people here willing to argue with you ..Hey, that's a nice Two Door.No, ...its a Tudor.A Tudor?Yes, its a Tudor Sedan.Really? Not a Two Door Sedan?No...Tudor...Its a Tudor Sedan!Now....Why Henry Ford would feel the need to name a body style after a 15th century aristocratic movement started by Henry VII is beyond me.....Thank god they never sold Trouble Pruff Tires here.
I always got a laugh over the Tudor and Fordor names, Henry must have had a soft side we never saw, but somehow he let that happen...
