What am I?

The bigger I am, the less I will hold. No one else would be so bold.

I get comfy in the car, as we travel real far.

I used to get used a whole lot. Now, nobody gives a squat.

It's clear when I fail, you'll hear folks wail.

I was popular in the eighties. I sure miss my Mercedes.

And I will say, picture responses are preferred! And folks, this is my first question ever in this forum. thx!

Edit: Apparently this one needed some revisions. I really had trouble with my original title. I probably shouldn't have added the "It really sucks that I need to add 15 characters up here..." comment. Apologies if anyone is offended.

Post solve note.

Wow, I was very surprised that this puzzle took so long to solve. It got a whole lot of views.

• I realize (with perfect hindsight) some of those hints were pretty lame;
• Some of the better hints that I added on later, I should have offered up in the initial problem statement. (e.g. I've got to contain myself, but I'm just not reserved enough for that.)
• In my defense, this was my first time posting a puzzle on this site.
• And I've learned a whole bunch of what not to do next time.
• Much as you want to, you are not allowed to solve your own puzzle.
• Leaving additional hints in individual comments is not a good practice. That just gets ugly fast.
• Best to create a complete set of hints, list them in original puzzle, and leave it be.
• I also learned if you want to leave a good hint in the title, be careful of the words you use. The edit police are out there. (sigh.)

At any rate, thank you to all that participated.
