(I wasn't driving in the 60s, much less 1949, but I do have vague memories of micro-bus being used. On the other hand, I am positive that my memory has been contaminated by the usage in Arlo Guthrie's ``Alice's Restaurant''.) -------- David Harnick-Shapiro david[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]ics.uci.edu Information and Computer Science University of California, Irvine
