When I took my driver's exam I failed the first time, because in the parallel parking test they had stanchions at the two front corners but in the rear it was outside corner and center. I parked precisely half-way into the space. I guess they were testing powers of observation. (That was in the 50s)

The Type IIs I've had over the years:
1962 walk-through Kombi
1954 barn-door 23-window
1961 Panel Van

It sounds like you would be happy with a diesel motorbike. Or electric?

A panel van would be a nice base for a camper van conversion. Then I would have another excuse to visit the cousins who live near the Uruguayan border.

I don't really see myself getting any EV so soon, but who knows?

But I'm supposed to look this way in the next 40 years


This is an actual picture of me taken 2 years ago



That's awesome. One of these based in a 4WD version of this mini truck would be a great hunting rig.

Back to topic.

Nowadays, cars are seen more as an appliance than as an ego extender. Sure, there are still those folks who do use a fancy ride to show off, while others opt for an "eco" ride as a political statement, and the average Joe who cares more about the next iPhone than about the next generation of a random Jap econobox.

I failed the driving test the first time as well, here they pick 2 random birth dates a month(or at least used to) to make them drive. I went right on red without coming to a complete stop.

I know now the drivers ed teacher can flag them and make them drive.

You could say that ego extension has transferred to the smartphone. It predates the car and will be around long after smartphones have been superseded.

I'm not posting a selfie, because reasons; but I look like that right now, except for the hat and the black goatee.
