    AND there's '72/'73 Ranchero just to left of Metropolitan, plus a VW bug beside Mav... Guess those two fought till their death.

    Someone needs to yank that minivan and SUV out of there; spoils the setting! Perhaps replace them with an Edsel and a 4 door `57 Chevy hardtop.

    What would you suggest as replacements?

    WoW, Rick, that's a high bar...

    Maybe a '61 Olds? Had one briefly in summer of '69. Guess we should include MoPAR, how bout one of the toadish, Studebaker looking Valiants?. Station wagon no less... 61valliantsw.jpg

    I would like to have that "toad" wagon Tom with a 360 (probably can't get a 340 easily) more robust trans' and diff' disk brakes, power steering, A/C and keep the single exhaust.

    Or maybe a 413 Max wedge clone, push button Torque Flight and 5:13 gears and all lettered up with a name like they did in the sixties!

    Just dreaming; that's how it starts, right!

    If you're goin 360, gotta stroke it out to 410....

    For a Wax Wedge, we find a clapped out motorhome & rob it's 440...
