    I have always enjoyed owning and driving very ugly cars and trucks, stuff that nobody else has, this Morris is a true rival for my Kalamazoo K-45 burden carrier, I will admit, that the Morris has more stylish lines than the square box like lines of the Kalamazoo.

    Lets see if anybody knows exactly what this giant set of very well built, wooden spoke wheels was used for, I recently found out, but it will be interesting to see the responses here, when I saw it in a field, in the San Joaquin Valley, I had to stop and get some pictures of it. The steel bands are not O.E.M., they were just wired to it to help slow the erosion of the wood underneath, purely as a static display in the property owners field. They are taller than you think, and the whole unit is built very beefy and stout.

    Looks like something to carry large large logs...

    Bravo, that is exactly what it was used for, pulled by teams of horses!

    That Beetle reminds me of my wife's car when I met her.
    I don't remember what year model it was but it was an "automatic".
    It had a 3 speed transmission but with a fluid clutch. They called it an automatic.
    You didn't have to shift it, you could just leave it in gear but it wouldn't shift up or down "automatic".
    There was no clutch pedal. If you just touched the shift arm, or the brakes, it would slip into neutral.
    It had a real wide brake pedal that you would sometimes hit when you instinctively were going for the clutch to shift...but there was no clutch, just brakes and a face plant into the windshield.

    1963: Before car seat belts were required, the Medina JayCees held 4 Seat Belt Safety Clinics where they would install seat belts in your car for just the cost of the belts.
