Re: Gas filler location

The filler was under the left rear taillight on the 57 Olds, it had a chrome door that you pulled up to get to the cap. very hard to find. The 56 Chevy was the worst, it was behind a door that had a latch that you had to know was not just chrome and turned to get the cover to move. And the whole thing was styled into the left taillight assembly.

All right, I'm still waiting for the answer for the automated manual transmission ( who did it first/inventor's name ), but since it's Friday...........

Name the first companies that put series hybrid vehicles together for road use.

Here's a hint: They were made in my hometown.

This ought to be an easy one.

Hybrid is a confusing term for some. Did it have separate power sources, i.e. a fuel tank and batteries? Because if not, I could claim anything with a torque converter is a series hybrid (which I don't claim), or I could claim that a diesel/electric train is a hybrid (which it absolutely is not because it is a just a glorified torque converter).

It used an ICE and an electric motor, and it was made a very long time ago.

This is an ICE / electric combo that is series style, nothing deep.

It was something that was already done, so anything but the right answer is going to be met with

BOOOOOOOOONNNNNG ( BIG X ).

C'mon dude, yer parsing. The question is the question. It was built, full stop.

This is meant to be fun and light.

Let's not harsh the vibe here.
