    I was going by the grille and how similar it is the the grille on my 39 D-2 1/2 ton IHC pu. IHC was seriously into the art deco look in the late 30's.

    Looking around for snow plow found this

    Put a cab and heater in it,and pay for it clearing your neighbors driveways. Maybe even some shopping center parking lots. It's just too damn cold in Mn to not have a cab and heater on a snow plow.

    I suspect that all depends on how cold it gets and how hard the wind blows where you live this winter.

    That was pretty damn smart,but how did you keep the lighter from popping out and shutting the car down when it got hot? In case none of you has guessed,I doan no nuttin bout no lectricity.
  7. No big deal. Contact a 18 wheeler tow company. It would just be another dead truck tow for them, OR.....you could make it a real adventure by going there,putting brakes on it,getting it running,and driving it back home. Dress warmly.

    Anti-theft devices

    When I was living in a slum neighborhood out in Denver in the mid-70's (70 bucks a month rent for a furnished apt including utilities!) I started out chaining my dobie to my shovelhead,but had problems. The first being she kept crying and wanting to come inside where I was,but the biggest was it occurred to me that is I caught someone trying to steal my scoot I would be very mad,but nothing compared to my frame of mind if someone killed my dobie while she was chained and couldn't defend herself. I could replace the bike,but I couldn't replace her,and the guilt of her dying because I had her chained so she couldn't maneuver was more than I could deal with. So I just chained the bike up leaning up against the bedroom window where I slept,and brought her in the house to sleep at the foot of the bed like she always did. I figured I would either wake up myself if anybody tried to cut the chains and move it,or she would hear it and wake me up. Either way all I had to do was shoot right out the window,so it was all good.

    I'm wondering where they were going. Do you have any idea?

    Anti-theft devices

    The good news is you live in England,which means any thief would have a hard time selling or parting it out without getting caught. The bad news is the only secure parking is inside a locked building with armed guards. Most of us can't afford that. I live up a dirt road on a island and my closest neighbor is over a mile away. Yet one night last week somebody came into my yard and stole a factory hubcap off my 2016 Chevrolet pu. I have had people steal radiators,batteries,and various lenses and lights off of antique cars. Had someone come and steal a very expensive battery out of my big Ford frontend loader one night,and it was parked in the yard right in front of the window I am looking out of now. The fact that I have guns and am known to have killed people doesn't even seem to slow them down. Mostly because everybody that is a thief thinks THEY are too smart to get caught. Truth to tell I have avoided buying game cameras to set up around the yard to try to avoid catching anyone,but sooner or later I will,and it's going to get ugly when I do.

    My First Car -- P15 1947 Plymouth Deluxe

    Black not only gets the car VERY hot when the sun is shining on it in the summer,but it makes the tiniest flaw in the paint look like a hole you could fall into,and it is damn near impossible to keep as much black sheet metal as you have clean and polished. I would rather spend my time driving than washing and waxing,but then again I am a LOT older than you and am not as limber as I used to be. Some days I can't even bend over without falling down.

    They look a lot better than merely "nice". Do you mind telling us what it cost to get both seats covered?

    Everybody needs a sun deck. I sure hope he has power steering added.

    The Japanese drive like lunatics. I also had a Triumph Bonneville motorcycle I rode on the street (had a Ducati I flat track raced and a Honda for motocross racing), and got ran into 3 times in one month once. The good news was the island speed limit was 35 MPH,and most people obeyed the speed limit. Plus,with the bikes I had enough power and agility to power my way out of most potential accidents if I saw someone coming. All 3 times that one money I got rear ended and the drivers claimed they couldn't see my brake light,so I went to a junkyard and bought one 59 Impala taillight assembly and bolted it to my sissy bar. That SOB was so big nobody could claim they didn't see it. As for owning the sports car now,I wouldn't be able to get out of it if I somehow got in it,so why bother? Hell,I can't even ride my Harley anymore because I can't raise my leg high enough to get on it.

    Thanks,but I am no longer flexible enough to get in and out of something like that.

    I suspect it was a pun on the General Lee from the Dukes of Hazard.

    Why? I used to drive a Honda S600 coupe sports car on Okinawa. Bought it new. Had a 600 CC 4 carb dual overhead cam 4 cylinder Honda motorcycle engine in it,and chain drive. Rev it up and drop the clutch,and the rear end would raise up in the air. It would turn up 10 grand in RPM,and was a real hoot to drive. First new car I ever bought. IIRC,I paid around 1600 bucks for it new in 1966.

    I think if I lived in a big city again and did most of my driving on city streets,that I would have one of those things as a daily driver.

    Nice score! I have a thing for 56's,and wish it were mine.
  20. Shouldn't it also have the factory dual cast iron exhaust manifolds?

    I don't see it ever being a thing. Minimal tire contact with the road means very poor traction and handling,not to mention breaking. Would be squirrely as hell at speed. Plus no protection at all in an accident. You couldn't even hope to be thrown away from it. AND....,no fenders. Would suck to ride it in the rain or snow. Not that you would get very far in the snow,anyhow.

    Never seen a kid on a powered bike looking so sad. Think maybe he ran over a fresh cow pie and was crying because of no fender overhead?

    There is such a thing as "extra" heat??? Who knew?

    No cab,no doors,no heater. Not what I would want for a snow plow.

    You are probably right. Bulls seem to have a lot more energy and these "waste" it by chasing cows around. Still,that is one impressive creature,and you can bet they regret trimming him down. The farmer that owns the land on both sides of me used to have a couple of bulls and some cattle they let wander around,and they would come up every afternoon to feed them. I was talking with the guy once while they were eating,and his huge white Brahma bull came up and discovered one of the cows was in heat,and the guys GM diesel pu was in the way. So,with no apparent effort, he just put his shoulder up against the front fender and pushed it sideways in the road so he could go where he wanted to be. I was coming in from work one day riding my Harley with drag pipes and gutted mufflers,and was stuck in one of the tire tracks in that sand road. As I went around a curve,there stood that white Brahma bull,standing sideways right in the middle of the road. The Harley was doing a little snorting due to having to run that slow,and my immediate thought was "Oh,crap! What if that SOB sees this as another bull challenging him?" Luckily for me,the bike scared the hell out of him,and it SEEMED like he just jumped straight up in the air,spun 90 degrees so he could hit the road running,and hit it it running he did. SOB was gone in the blink of an eye. There is no way in the world that something that big can move that fast,but he did. BTW,he,the other bull,and the cattle were mostly tame. Lots of times one would just walk through the electric fence,and several of them would be standing around in my yard when I got home. If I was driving my car or truck they would just stand there and look at me as I walked past them. This never bothered me because I was pretty sure them standing around in the yard kept strangers from coming in there to steal something when I wasn't home. If you don't know them,just assuming a bull is tame is a mighty risky move to make.
