    Nah ... that ain't really braking.
    It's just the effects of the normal suspension, bouncing along. The front will be in the air next.
    That's the real reason why seat belts were invented!

    I think you'd call it a juke box :)

    Fair enough - I'll re-phrase: I never knew there was a juke box to fit an a car, as a factory option :p

    I must confess I'm not a huge fan of 'full' size American cars, although I like a few of the late 60's muscle cars and the C5 onwards Corvettes, particularly any of 'space age huge finned cars. I do however have a soft spot for one of their 2 door coupes and that's this one, which had optional disc brakes, but only on the front -

    I'm a huge fan of American cars, and bigger the better, the big convertibles from the 60's I think look like mobile bath tubs :D
    Have had quite a few and I am surprised I don't own at least one right now.
    Got to be a Mopar as these are my favourites especially a '72 Challenger :cool::cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:
