    I am reposting this information from Truck64 because it was imbedded in a thread on ATF/Acetone and for that reason somewhat hidden from view. All credit (and thanks) to Truck64. To quote a nostalgic old marketing phrase, "Try it - you'll like it!"

    Truck64, post: 13040469, member: 274442] "Here's a link to the complete Gus archives, 1925-1970"

    I read some of these as a kid and who knows? May have fueled the fire in me for auto repair.
    Thank you very much for the link. You really made my day - or maybe the month it'll take me to read them all.

    HAMBers, if you don't know about Gus and the Model Garage, you should. They're always a good read, always include a moral, and every episode teaches you a new auto repair trick.
    Thanks again Truck 64. We're all in your debt. Lucas

  6. I have been going through all the tips, and found a few that I like. If you go to the page with the PDF files and intend to look for the hints that will be useful to you, I suggest that you start with the last year and work backward. There are more useful tips from the later years, although it was interesting to look through the tips from the war years.
