    I learned to drive in a 61 Rambler. 4 door sedan with dinky little fins. Same setup, push button starter, 3.8L straight 6.

    Dad bought it new and I bought it from Dad for what the Buick dealer offered him in trade in value for the vehicle in 1966, $100. I drove it for another year and traded it for a Nissan. We drove that Rambler for 8 years and never had to turn a bolt on the engine for repairs. Being in TN I did not have the rust issue to deal with. It was still pristine when I sold it.

    The exact same engine is in my 1997 Jeep and was used until 2002.

    Chrysler could not stand the thought that they were using a Nash-Rambler engine designed in 1955 in their most popular seller and it was considered their best motor!
    Come to the dark side, we have pudding.

    When I worked on my F100 or Jeep, I would climb into the engine compartment and sit next to what I was working on. Since that time they filled those big empty spaces with things that nobody understands.

    Ain't that the truth. Of course in those days I could actually fit in those spaces. So.....
