Aaaarrrrrggggg Randall !!! Although the ripe old age of 15 WITH
my D/L I OWNED TWO  '59 Chery Impalas <G> !!!
<<Dad even owned an automatic transmission car (Olds F85 as I
recall, tho perhaps I'm mistaken on that point) that could be
started bypushing the car. >>
Sounds correct to me.
<< Bit exciting though, had to get up to 40 mph or so to do it
(definitely a memorable experience on icy roads)! >>
35 for Chevy PowerGlide <G> !!!
And if one wanted SERIOUS "engine braking" from
say 60 MPH, just drop into 'L' [sorta Low<G>]. Brakes?
Who needed brakes ?!?! LOL
And BTW, 'L' WOULD propel the car to approx 80 -85
[but only a few times - LOL]!!
