    In the 60's and 70's I drove my Buick powered Willys to work every day while working as an Engineer at Ford. Ford promised you a good deal when you got recruited in college but the deal turned out to be on 4 door 6 cyl falcons. I got a lot of static until I got the Stockholders annual report and they had pictures of Ford of Brazil building 50's Willy’s wagons as a partnership.

    "Leaded", that is so cool. I guess when I move to Sweden I need one of those South Wind Heaters. Nice picture.

    Nah! If your heater is functional, it should hold! Worst problem is to get the fan to blow such that the frost get of the side & rear windows.
    But, a scraper function also...........:D

    Real GREAT!! I´ve got spiketyres, and got no trouble, at least not much more than other cars. In steep roads (private to houses,or similar) its fantastic!
    And its a easy way to get training for gravelrace fun in yhe summer....:cool:

    Out of nessecity rather than choice, i had to use my 65 as my daily for a few months...unfortunately those few months were fall into winter... in MI... with no heat. Blankets and a lot of cursing, but it always got me there in style.

    Currently my 62 galaxie but barring snafu this truck will be next week. The little 6 should be a lot easier on cheeper gas than the 406 in the galaxie!
