Ok, you have a 1965 Skylark and a 1965 Skylark Gran Sport engine compartment wire harness, how do you tell which is which?

Back in the sixtes one of the Big Three shipped some of their vehicles by hanging them from their rear bumpers. Who was it and which vehicle was it?

Wait a minute, you said back in the sixties! The Vega didn't exist until 1970! I just remembered some odd photos of the shipping of the Vega. I didn't remember anything about hanging from bumpers but the shipping was wild, that I knew.

Of course, if it's a Mazda, it goes "Zoom-zoom" (unless it it is backing, when it sounds like "muzz-muzz")
