LOL! Older hippie buddy of mine back in high-school had a Dauphine! Yeah - that thing was so slow, it had to speed-up to stop!

Only car I owned that may have been slower was the '67 Angila (British Ford) I owned while I was in Navy A-school. Same color & model as this one. Had a 997cc 4-banger with less HP than most modern riding lawnmowers. Did 0-60 MPH in 29 sec, and the tested top-end was ~75 MPH.

Had the goofiest transmission setup I've ever seen - a 4-speed stick ON THE COLUMN! Was bass-ackwards. If I remember correctly - 1st was in & up, reverse was in & down, 2nd was in the middle & down, 3rd was middle & up, 4th was out & down. You can imagine how many of 'em had bad reverse gears from people missing the 1-2 shift & ending-up in reverse!

My first car was a lethargic and well-used 1970 Datsun pick-up with a 1600c.c. engine. I never got it over 60mph on the freeway because I was afraid the engine would blow up.

My first was a black '63 Merc Meteor with a 260 V8 1-barrel & a 2-speed Fordamatic. Nearly as slow as that Thames Freighter!

And I learned to drive in a '47 Merc 5-window coupe w/flathead V8 & a three-on-the-tree, named "Green Onions". Was my older sister & brother's car back when they were in high-school. Looked like this, but green.

Datsun 510 probably hovered better than the Nova.
