My Mother the Car[edit]

I was trying to find the character's name in the show, for the car, besides "Mom." In this article it states that her name was Abigail, other information I have found states it is Gladys. Can someone remember? and confirm for me? Thanks. --FELICT 02:34, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Only the CAR is from 1928[edit]

In the episode "You Can't Get There From Here", David discovers his driver's license is expired in a small town. The sheriff says he can't drive with an expired license. So they are stuck there? Except his ENTIRE FAMILY is with him -- INCLUDING HIS WIFE. You are going to tell me that SHE doesn't have a driver's license? In 1965? I might have bought it had they said something like, "No one else can drive Mom, I mean the Porter." Or they could have said that she doesn't know how to drive a manual transmission. Granted -- unlikely since someone of her age would likely have learned how to drive on a manual transmission car. But, at least address it. I got so frustrated I changed the channel. Admittedly, that may have been the solution they came with, but then why was Barbara crying with everyone else at the commercial break? She's not THAT scatterbrained.

no - in 1965 in the UK for example looks like only 15% of women aged 40-49 had full drivers licenses source here
