      Hard to argue with how well the little buggers hold together, super simple design, and they make a great source for heavy duty Festiva parts, but.....ehhhh:rolleyes:

      If only that white area on the roof of the Astro-van was a real satellite dish, I'd say you had the perfect redneck motor home....

      There goes your Pebble Beach concours medal!:laugh:

      Doesn't that quote go back to Mr. Soichiro H himself?:confused:

      Vacuum res. w/ a check valve? Pretty sure my '64 Catalina had one of those....;)

      That design would be as likely to be used in swamp/wetland construction work as snow- think pipe and powerline work. Less maneuverability needed than in a mountainous area, where something like this...

      Rants like this always make me think of the debt we owe the old 'private importers' of the past. BMW, ALFA, Guzzi, etc.; all of that classic iron (and a few current oem's) might never had shown up...

      Well, I'd take a carb over the lo-flow CIS it came with, but that Audi 2.0 heron head wasn't good for much anyway.

      When we were in HS, a friend had a big Dodge with a CB/loudspeaker and a side mounted spot. We'd ram around at high speed on the two laners, and when we'd come up behind someone would just grab the...

      This. A guy I knew with a big Fomoco wound up dumping it fast, as it slowed his commute down to a crawl on our twisty 2-laners. Everyone he'd rocket up behind would slam on the brakes and...

      It seemed to me that back then the folks who actually *liked* the looks of the Aztec were into that HUMVEE look, but couldn't swing the big one. Real flag-waving, support the troops, yellow ribbon...

      1. If it's just a short term run and dump, a bad market will hurt you as badly as the guy you bought it from.

      My daughters 'rocco had a weird intermittent overheat that was solved by an old VW mech; there's a restricter in the return line to the overflow bottle- at least on her '85- and once it was pulled,...

      Please Jesus yes. I was thinking about it today; the 1989 Isuzu stripper P/U that started me on my path to glory would go for about 12k today at constant (minimum wage) dollars. Add 3k for current...

      Were you around when they were new? They were slammed back then as narrow purpose, race-homologation specials, without almost any redeeming qualities for DD and/or street use, much as the first Z-28...

      Absolute agreement, *but*; the SAAB is a prime example of the benefits simple aftermarket 'wood kits' can produce. It's purely psychological, but totally transforming. I'll add that my all-time...
