    Reminds me of Da Yoopers “Rusty Chevrolet”.

    When I started a major remodeling project on my house, I bought an old beater 1967 International pickup for $300.

    The radio didn’t work, the parking brake was whimsical, the lighting system worked only in the daytime, the master cylinder leaked, and the worn kingpin bushings made driving down a narrow street an adventure. But that beast could literally pull the porch off a house.

    Gawd, I loved that truck!

    Pluggers can enjoy the Top Ten, because they don’t remember them from earlier in the year.

    Back in ’62, we bought a ’51 Chevy for $50, the insurance was $100. It ran for 6 months, but that was our first car. Wish it could have lasted a bit longer though.

    Still drive a 1971 VW bus. Bought it in 2000. Didn’t have a radio. Still doesn’t.

    Offering $850 provided there are new inner tubes in the tires … Atlas is 1985 of later … John Wayne bobblehead optional.

    Crank windows and a five-speed transmission — it’s a piece of exercise equipment.

    That one’s a late 60’s or early 70’s F150.

    …Atlas comes with at least 48 states.

    My first car (‘57 Beetle) didn’t have a radio, so I took out the ashtray and stuck an FM portable in the space. Someone broke into the car and the only thing they took was the radio. I suspect they may have been disappointed as the tuner was broken and all it could get was the local classical music station.

    I’d have to add FM to the radio. I doubt there’s any music on the AM around here. If there’s talking, I’m walking…
