Cars We Remember: Maritime engineer on nuclear energy and electric car charging; more compact car memories | Arts & Living


Q: Greg, I just read your article in the October 7 Weekender at Montrose. I would not miss and enjoy reading your articles every week.

I’m particularly interested in your article on diesel, as I owned an Oldsmobile diesel station wagon at the time. My wife particularly liked the fact that no matter what, once the engine is running, it never stalls! However, the car was likely to hit large puddles of water causing the fan belts to get wet and the generator light to turn on for a moment or two. She described them as “generating puddles!”

First compact car missed?
