Germans never knew how to make a car for norther canada. But hey, they sold a bunch. Until we just Stopped buying them cuz they don't last in tuff conditions. Point blank.

But their engineering in other ways outclassed us in more ways than one. My first experience with european quality was the first watch I bought and owned on my grand pa's advice. Mind you, not my fathers. And my grand dad never owned a car or had a valid whatever. Except for a pipe fitters card given to him after 5th grade when he was old enough to look awkward.

This is for all the Mobiles Dans and me of this site.

Yes I did say I would limit the video content to a minumum. But this is canada corn bread stuff.

Yep, compression gauge, timing light, and vacuum gauge are just as useful now as they ever were. Fuel pressure wasn't critical with carbs, but add that one too to my "basics" when a modern engine starts acting up.
