The newest automobile in the Hoopty Rides collection is the 1961 Mercedes 190b.
From the owner's manual,
"...your 190 will never let you down, and you will find it a practical touring car equally suitable for town, country and long-distance driving."
The manual continues,
"Type 190 combines the advantages of the large and heavy touring cars as far as the suspension and the passenger and luggage compartments are concerned with the driving performance of a sports car, the safety of a heavy car and economical operation of a medium class car."
It is a wonder that the rare 'chicken coop top' was not mentioned in that paragraph long sentence. As you can see, the chicken coop top combines the advantages of the large and heavy touring cars as far as providing some vague idea of a roof is concerned with the windswept driving experience of a sports car, the ease of poultry ingress/egress of a heavy car and the economical lack of maintence of a medium class car with the roof cut off.
