I took the valve cover off and EVERY bolt that held the overhead camshaft in place was cracked, split or yanked out of the threads of the bolt hole. The cam shaft was bent. I stripped the chrome bumpers and grill off the diesel and put them on the Scooter. It looked a little better.

Besides, it didn't have AC. Damned car salesman lied and said it could be installed later. Not.

I wasn't in the armed forces so I never saw the 'Larry' series.

As for the 60/100...you never tried to roll down the back window in a Chevette, did you?

Unless you mean the other way around, then there's this...

Closing it later on is a bitch, though.

yes but you have the hang of it

now try the block of 2x4 in the hatchback thing
works best if you have a bungy cord to keep it closed.
