Hemmings Sunday Cinema – wrist twist steering, Town and Country design, Norske Byggeklosser

Published in

Crazy, right? Mercury’s Wrist-Twist steering couldn’t have ever worked, could it? Except, as we see in this rather sexist Mercury promo video that Mac’s Motor City Garage unearthed showing the steering system in action, it apparently did work.

* What do modern designers think about classic car shapes? That’s apparently the idea behind Chrysler’s recent series of videos, including this one in which interior designer Chris Benjamin looks over a 1948 Chrysler Town and Country convertible in the Walter P. Chrysler Museum.

* Finally, while we got plenty of great suggestions last week for more Italian film car chase scenes (and discovered plenty more while researching them), which would seem to have the highest influence-on-Quentin-Tarantino ratio of any car chase scenes, we may have found something better: Scandinavian film car chase scenes. Don’t believe me? Check out this one from the 1972 flick “Norske byggeklosser.”
