Not old enough to remember 'em new, but studied enough to know them. Would be an interesting little pickemup to have, or a Ranchero. Could be a nice efficient way to get into a pickup for the non-modern like myself.

My friend's dad had one for many years. Weird in a very cool sort of way.

I'm not even old enough to have seen any of these on the road.

I've seen them on the road, and once in a blue moon I still do.

What I really like is seeing old restored trucks doing work. That's so cool to me.

I see them in junk yards every now and then. There are also still a few rolling around the bay.

Yeah, I remember those. Chevrolet had a Corvair version of those as well. But here is my favorite:



When I was a kid, we had the microbus version...kinda like this one:



Two cylinder, two stroke, fuel injected, front wheel drive, kinda looks like a catbus...very interesting vehicle (but it just couldn't take being used as a TV service van running around the hills in La Crescenta, CA)

2 stroke, 2 cylinder engine. It sounds like my dad's lawn tractor has a better engine. That has a 4 cycle, 2 cylinder 22 HP Briggs & Stratton engine in it.
