Ahh the good old days. When I could sit on a fender or radiator shroud, dangle my legs inside the engine bay, and still have plenty of room to work

The first automobile engine that I ever opened was a Studebaker Lark flat head 6. I replaced the rings and hand lapped the valves in the driveway and my friend drove that car to school 2 years before it was totaled. They don't make them like they did back then and the price these days for plastic and computers is crazy. I kept a Ford van on the road !,250,000 miles in the 80s but Ford dropped the bullet proof engine that made Ford trucks the best selling trucks in the world.
