One of my first automotive loves was a 1961 International Scout with All-Wheel Drive and the slant four. This was in the mid 'seventies and the car was about worn out, but it NEVER stranded me; it always started and got me home.

The worst thing about it was that the o-ring in the master cylinder of the hydraulic clutch kept blowing; but all I had to do was wait for the traffic to die out, so I could drive it home without the clutch and replace the o-ring.

After a little of this, I got to the point where I could start out in first gear/low transfer, manipulate the three-lever shift through its paces, and end up doing fifty-five in third/high, and then go back down to first/low again, without touching a toe to the clutch. It helped that only second and third were synchroed.

I was so PROUD of myself!

I know what you mean! My Dad had a '60 Scout he used to deliver prescriptions. Sliding side windows, and a removable top. Lots of fun!

I learned to drive in a '56 IH pickup..out in the pasture. That had to be the lowest geared pickup I was ever in. It had a 3 speed tranny and would do all of 52 mph, wide open! You never had to worry about smoking the clutch though. In fact, it never had the clutch replaced in the nearly 20 years we owned it. It smoked like a freight train and the seat rails had the nasty habit of skinning my ankles and the rear fenders flopped until dad put some L braces on them. It was a tough old truck. I think the only thing that ran IH out of the pickup business was that they were so danged ugly!

Like most features of our life, few things are all good or all bad, and most such judgments depend on our own perspective or viewpoint. In our particular hobby, we enjoy the nostalgic return to the days of our youth as we recreate many of the scenes that took place on the family farm that served as the stage for the first few acts of the play that is our live ...
