It doesn’t, alas, come with a whole lot of freedom of movement, at least on the inside:
Former Congressman and presidential hopeful Ron Paul is holding an auction for his 1979 Chevrolet Chevette to benefit his non-profit Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity.
The otherwise-unremarkable econobox has just under 70,000 miles and comes with some history attached:
[T]his little Chevette is a part of congressional history. Paul bought it during his first term as a U.S. representative. That same year, then-Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill was advocating gasoline rationing while being chauffeured in a large Lincoln. According to Paul, [a] “cheeky photo” comparing his compact car and O’Neill’s massive Lincoln caused a blow-up between himself and O’Neill.
Ah, Tip. After the last couple of Speakers, I kinda miss the guy.
