"Godspeed, John Glenn"

This is non-Falcon related, but it is about an old car.

I am reading the book "The Right Stuff" and it mentioned that the other Mercury astronauts laughed at John Glenn's battered, 40-horsepower Prinz automobile.

I had to look it up to see what a Prinz was, "...a car so tiny it made his seat in the Mercury capsule almost feel roomy".

See the article at: https://jalopnik.com/john-glenn-had-...aut-1789933831 (Links to an external site.)
