Re: Thermostats ?

Hmmm, that wire appears to be thicker than what I used. I seem to have plenty of time to dabble with them as N. H. is going to be "Perma frost" year round I guess ! 40 degrees at 6:45 AM

Re: What's this 35 pickup worth??

I'd be a buyer at $15,000, no problem. Sold mine for around $13,000 some years back to a fellow from Long Island. All restored and drivable !
