Re: [DML] British Motoring versus American Motoring

Now that I am thinking more clearly:

That our little cars were designed by Brits accounts for some of their oddities by American standards. For example, the seats are perfect for keeping you in place while twisting and turning on British roads for an hour or two, but they become rather irritating after 10 or 12 hours on American straightaways. Brits travel in one bag apiece, which the luggage compartment can accommodate with ease, but Americans tend to pack enough for a polar expedition, even when the trip only lasts a weekend (I went carry on, but had to transport 3 other Americans from Manchester, each of whom had at least two pieces of luggage -- what a full little car). Power steering would actually be a liability on uber twisty British roads. You do need a decent defroster, even in Britain, so that omission does have me a bit baffled. Etc.

BTW: Check British weather forecasts before leaving. If they call for 100 MPH gale force winds, stay home.
