    I would think the three on the tree would put it in the rare category. Baring some catastrophic event I bet the motor can be unstuck.

    This is my '78 daily driver. I do drive it in the Winters here is northern Wisconsin too. It is my only vehicle. Thank goodness for POR-15, works very well, but inevitably I still have to chase the rust on the wheel wells and rockers every spring. Chrome wheels last about 4 years then I have to get new ones from Summit (8 lug) Fifi and Scotts 1978 Chevy Pickup.JPG

    My "to-me, from-me" retirement present. A paid-for 2016 Mustang GT that they'll probably bury me in. It gets an outrageous 25-27 MPG at 70-80 mph! And it's scary fast even with "only" 435 hp.

    Don't have any actual pictures of mine, but this picture from the Ford website shows my car's color (dark green "Guard") and the wheels.

    Go ahead and laugh, but since I broke the crank in big blue, here is my current daily, 96 Metro 3cyl, 5 speed. I've got $1400 total invested in it with rebuilt motor and trans, drive it through everything nasty every day and still get 43mpg with it...if i'm nice on normal highway at 60 I get 49mpg. Fold down the seat in the back and I've fit even an old Linde plasma cutter (around 400 lbs) in the back, lol.

    right now my daily is a 2013 sonata. when I get around to getting the bike inspected and re-registered, i'll be riding a 2012 Iron 883 in town. when i get the '51 5 window up and running I'll be able to get rid of the car but that is looking like 2 years off (perpetually)...

    my girl has a '94 Geo Metro drop top with a clutch that i got to drive this weekend. that little car is major FUN! made me miss my old MG. I'm trying to convince her that a built 350 would make that Geo more fun but she's not buying into that yet.

    Yeah I have a 500whp Vette that turns about 1800rpm at 75mph and gets 27mph pretty consistent on highways.

    My DD is a 2012 Cruze Eco, 6 spd manual. (manual availability is a big reason I picked it). Low to mid 30's in town, low 40's on the freeway.

    My other project: '76 Corvette, owned it for 17 years. Painted 14 years ago or so, rebuilt the original 2-bolt block with vortec heads and a little bigger cam about seven years ago.

    And my wife drives a 2014 Toyota Sienna, but no pics of that!
