So, I made an entirely practical decision to buy Dan Collins' beautiful '58 Dodge Town Panel, its arrival to coincide with the winter snow and our highest ever fuel prices. After all that Ventura sunshine, this beast won't know what's hit it.
It's got a 305 Chevy V8 with a two barrel Rochester, HEI igntition, 700R4 overdrive trans, Camaro front clip with power brakes & steering and a Camaro 10 bolt rear. The wheels are rare: 1960s Foresight Indy mags. It also has a top-of-the-line Vi-Air airbag system, so I can do the lowrider bounce in the sleet down to Tesco.
Look out for it next year as I will be getting out and about and selling the magazine at more shows up and down the country.
