Last Call – It's Snow Problem Edition

In 1922, Ford offered a snowmobile conversion for the most popular car in the world, their Model T. Lumber companies used it to haul logs during the long winter months, as well as rebellious youths seeking some hooch-powered thrills off ski jumps and frozen lakes, who had discovered this thing called “extreme sports.”

    This sounds like the precursor to the UTV. We drove the bejesus out of the Kawi Mules at my county job, much to the chagrin of the park mechanic who fixed the things that break from excessive hoonage. I would just like to say this has been one of the BEST Fastback Fridays in awhile IMO. Plenty of diverse posts to pore over and I haven't even been glued to the computer as usual.
    In other news, just sealed the deal on a $700 '93 Dodge Dynasty with the old man. I hope it works out well for him.

      My neighbor (hunch backed old retiree) has a Dynasty as his nice "Sunday" car, while his daily driver is an Escape. Sad to say, he probably wouldn't get much more than $700 for that Dynasty if he sold it. What kind of shape is your dad's in?

        90k miles. Paint flaking off any horizontal surfaces, but minimal rust. It starts easy despite being buried with snow all winter. The worst part of the car is the hood that only shuts when it wants to. Roll down windows, a definite win in my book. Good car but it's ugly as shit and mediocre everywhere else, perfect for dad, also a hunch backed retiree haha.
