Actually, if I recall things aright, when Corun mentioned them, it was
emphatically NOT in the context of them being a reliable historical
source; merely that this item had appeared as their trivia feature and
that perhaps one should take it from whence it comes.

to think an NPR auto show is a sound reference.
