    My kid (HS freshman) gets one actual snow day. Anything after that is a "zoom day". They're home but still working. She goes to a private school but the district runs busses that a lot of the kids use so the school is at their mercy.

    What was the mural painted on it? fuzzy dice or dingle ball fringe? What color was the shag and anything under 3” and you were a poser :D

    I’m no Mopar guy but that engine was solid… kudos man… you walked the walk :D

    Precisely, so few have a parent at home during the work day as standard backup.

    Actually it was the window van with curtains. Red and silver paint. Keystone wheels. I didn't like shag at all, even when it was popular. That shit got nasty too fast. Somehow I managed to throw a rod in the 6 and had to replace the engine. Rented a hoist and did it in the back yard. That thing had the longest damned clutch rod I've ever seen.

    wow, thought they were bullet proof… it’s got me envisioning you all cartooned up slanted hat and all on a rat rod Tshirt with the rod hanging out the side now… keystones and Cragers, and vans, were a bit before my time… by time I was building cars we’d moved on to the aluminum slots or the coveted American racing round holes…

    there was a VW Micro around that someone cut the middle out of and the wheels nearly touched… only the front seats left.. taller than it was long or wide… I think I’m a bit younger than you but definitely lived through all that stuff in the 70s as a kid…

    Yep...sloppy as hell too. I got it about '74 or '75 and it had some hard miles on it. It was a bit harder than changing out a conventional; car, but still easier than it would be with all of today's electronics

    Once a Wanker.. Always a Wanker!

    Grocery bags were paper back in the 1960's and most of the '70's. They were rare early on, and 'thrifty Mom's' carefully washed, folded, and saved them. Who knew what for? My Mom had an old laundry hamper that was a 'History of Plastic Bags,' as I emptied it. (The bottom wasn't strong enough to move it full.) Those at the bottom were from my Grandma, from the late '50's.

    Amazing the useful stuff people today throw away in the name of convenience.
