Default What flathead would you most likely encounter in space?

From a recent Hemming's article-a couple of Startrek Voyger clips-I hope these links work

Hi Everyone! I found the full episode on Prime, season 2 ep 1.

A blast from the past on more than one level.

I'm not afraid to admit that I lust for a '35/36 'pickup'.

Thanks Adam!

I'm not sure if flatheads in space is any more possible then pigs in space. But it makes for a good show and is fun!!! Maybe we can take care of what we have till then.

Adam, THAT was funny

Maybe someone here sent their '36 PU out for a rebuild lately, it wound up in paint and body shop prison, and it never came back?

I would LOVE a 36 pickup...and what if it proved to be that exact one! If it exists on a Hollywood lot, I wouldn't even clean out the vintage horse manure!

Seems like a really good deal! Merry Christmas to ME? I s'pose then I'd have to buy something of equal value for my wife. What's that I-Phone 12 cost?

The cost of the I-Phone 12 is the least of your concerns. Sleeping in the panel or woodie will get old after a while.
