I can see Evans from the front yard but the houses there are way to close for me. I'm behind the Cruise Inn. I prefer the 20 acres of curley red oaks. I love cruising the back roads off Sharon Hollow in either the Wagoneer or on my old Guzzi. Growing up in Onsted I couldn't wait to leave, and it only took six months to wish I hadn't. After 20 years I finally made it home. I'll do my best to never move again. My wife grew up on Vineyard, it is a small world. I could tell a few folks had been in the Sport before we had, it had been there for a year and a half.

Best of luck on the Woodie, Tony

I would love to find a Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth wagon 71-76 vintage to use as a tow vehicle. It would almost be full circle since I believe my wife's grandparents originally used one to tow the AS when new

My entry

Hi,
Fun thread to follow. My combination is a 38,000 mile Cadillac Fleetwood , a 31' 1971 Excella, and a Hensley Hitch.

I researched the original factory options and added the equivalent of the tow package rated for 6000 lbs. Started with an excellent condition car, added heavy duty 4 row radiator, factory 7 blade HD fan with a clutch, transmission cooler, custom hitch, and replaced all safety items in the suspension, complete brake system, and high quality tires. The car has an original auto level rear shocks and compressor system. I replaced the air shocks just to be safe. Same for the airstream with new upgraded axles, brakes, and 16 inch wheels to take advantage of better tire choices. No long trips yet, but hope to take a few trips next year. The airstream restoration is not yet finished, but in the final stages.
Factory 1971 Excella 31' weight is 4,900 lbs and a hitch weight of 450 lbs.

Betty's fantasy TV

"Lenore" my 1965 Doge Dart and Betty together. Though the mighty Slant 6 that Lenore possesses has plenty of power, her suspension, though new, just isn't up to the task but it's a nice thought anyway.

Egad!

Oh. Fantasy. I get it. For a minute there I thought - now that's just not very likely :-)

I had a couple of slant 6s - a 73 Plymouth Duster (automatic transmission) and a 77 Volare with a manual 3spd +OD on the floor. By 77 with all the emissions stuff, they just didn't have much power anymore but you just could not kill one of those engines!

I always wanted a Wagoneer - but it wouldn't be a daily driver and living in downtown Toronto wouldn't make it a sensible choice.

If and when we buy a piece of land with a barn, I might yet get one.
