They could be recycled as bus windshields...

In high school, one supervisor was tasked with measuring bell bottom flares, since 11" was the maximum allowed.

Re: Electronic Ignition - Pros and Cons

my Distributor with points would go haywire or skip out of alignment at the most awkward moments (in the middle of nowhere).

Re: Have you driven your Cougar today?

for the first time since I've had it, I haven't plated it yet.
We still have snow on the ground and the lake is still frozen....
Looking forward to plate it and take it for a ride in June
