More useless automotive trivia

More useless automotive trivia.

2.There was no 1998 Mazda Miata in the US.
3. VW only sold two Beetles in the USA in 1949
4. 1967 was the first year for dual circuit master cylinders preventing complete loss of braking if one circuit failed.
5. Chevrolet first produced their small block V8 in 1955.
6. Ford’s Mustang “California Special” was only made one year in 1968.
7. The last car to come with an option cassette player was the 2011 Ford Crown Vic.
8. When using the GM Tech II scan tool on a Saab 9-3 SS  if you go into the Airbag/SRS system submenu, there is a easter egg that allows the tech to play Pong on the Tech II. 
9. The AMC Pacer was supposed to have a GM supplied Rotary engine, when GM pulled the plug on their Rotary engine program it left AMC scrambling for a way to shoehorn their own straight six into the Pacer’s engine bay.
10. The 1974 Mustang II was not offered with a V8 engine. The ‘75 Mustangs had the radiator support moved several inches forward to accommodate the 5.0 liter V8. This also required the hood to be a few inches longer.
11. Honda’s first sports car, the S series, S500, S600 and the S800 had chain drive rear ends. They were produced from 1964-1966. The number in their name denotes the engine size in CCs.
12. Hardwoods were used in the body framing and flooring of early production cars. The Morgan is still made this way today.
