    I knew I should have brought my Universal Translator to work!
    But wait, early Fords are a Universal Translator,,
    I really like the gas-in -the-lap driving,
    When I needed that we had the gas holder sit on the fender of my Jeep wagon

  6. Oh my God! Did you see the driver horse that steering wheel around a corner and then had to really turn it hard to get the car straight again? Holy crap! I once drove a stock model A that had to be steered around a corner and brought back straight again but even that wasn't as hard to steer as that 33 in the video. Viva la Vega steering box!

    There must be a back story because Argentina is right-hand drive like everybody else in the western hemisphere (except for just one country, Surinam). That car must have gone the long way around the mountains to get there.

    Hahah yeah that was the first time we ever took it for a spin, the steering is now being 100% restored with brand new parts to be smooth and precise (by 1933 standards)

    We drove in the “wrong side of the road” until 1945, then we switch to LHD. That’s why all pre ww2 cars are RHD in Argentina.

    You are so right. (Pun intended.) I knew what I was thinking but I didn't know what I was writing. :oops: Mea culpa.

    Thank you for clearing up what was a mystery to me. I think that is very interesting. Now I'll probably research to see how often that has happened in other countries in the past.
