@ttyymmnn I think that's pretty amazing actually, that it was designed in the 1950's (I actually thought it was from the late 60's or early 70's. The cars look old don't match the modern design. There's many timeless designs out there. Even looking at the early Bauhaus, they still look extremely relevant and modern and that's from 1925. 1280px-6265_Dessau.jpg
@britsnswedes-was-minigti Front seal would be a good culprit for a leak like that, might be worth checking the little rubber pcv thing at the top of the engine for any tears that can make a mess of things but that's normally more of a dry oily mess.
@ttyymmnn One time when I was a teenager we were driving an old 50s farm truck down the highway, it ran out of gas, and my buddy kept coasting while I climbed to the bed, poured that gas from the spare can in the trunk into the tank, and we sped away without ever coming to a halt.
I thought it was a pretty cool little stunt until now...
@rallydarkstrike I think the orange truck may be a Commer, but with a heavily modified cab. It looks like the doors aren't the originals and have been re-hung to open backwards. It looks like there are extra windows added to the front of the cab too. This is the cab I think it's based on:
@ttyymmnn I was amazed how small the terminal was when I first flew into Kai Tak. It's interesting to see that it was too small back in the 60s. Even then, you had to be bussed in from your plane on the tarmac to the terminal.
@ttyymmnn it's crazy how time flies. Seems to move faster every year...
Family is doing well, son turns 5 soon, and daughter just turned 2. Busy between work (chaos) and now shuttling my son to various activities. Fun, but tiring!
@okaythen My sentiments exactly! So many people (not many amongst us here on Oppo, mind you...we're very inclusive 🙂 ) feel like they need to love a car for it's styling or performance or capability and harp against those basic everyday cars that are the heroes making the world go round day to day!
@ramblinrover The ones that got their engines pulled and were scrapped wouldn't have survived regardless. They were either beyond repair or were ubiquitously boring models no one cared about at the time. The ones worth saving most certainly were. You can go to a classic car show and there will be at least 2 or 3 Tri-Five Chevys within sight at all times.
