  1. call me a novice if you must, then get a chuckle at my expense, then tell me what the heck are the three canisters haanging off the side of that truck? Thanks

    1. Ummm, no criticism here Royce... those are really old road flares. They are filled with some petroleum substance like Sterno I suppose, and maybe a big wick, and people would light them off at night when broken down... those old vehicles before the 60's were using generators instead of alternators, 6 volt systems instead of 12, and when the motor wasn't on... there wasn't much for lighting or hazard lights to warn traffic of a dead car on the road. But you'll only cringe when you re-read the title of the post. Sorry man. Glad you are interested though!
