We only took one long distance family vacation in this car, driving from Florida to St. Louis, MO to see my dad's family. We were adhering to Dinah Shore's signature song, "See the USA, in your Chev-ro-let, America is asking you to call." The trip was in the summer and we made stops along the way to get Georgia peaches, SEE ROCK CITY, TN (a famous advertising scheme to paint these words on the roofs of barns and buildings all over the South), and other sites. Without air conditioning, our windows were open most of the time to try to stay cool without being blown away. We pulled over at rest stops and had picnics, and I can still see Daddy pulling the supplies out of the big trunk, and cutting up a juicy watermelon for us. With our family of four, my brother and I were in the back seat and had room to spread out and nap. No seat belts at this time, so we were not restricted to a position, which on a long trip turned into occasional disputes of "he's/she's on my side."
