That old crane looks like it was used for loading hay.

That makes sense, they grow a lot of hay in the area. I didn't know a crane was commonly used, my limited (and unfortunate) experience with loading hay involves a lot of lifting, sneezing and itching.

and another local, but this old Chevy is probably past saving from the berry bushes. Not sure what it was, too big for a wrecker, maybe a well drilling rig?

A couple of locals often seen at old equipment shows in the area.

I kind if thought it had to do with cooling. Cars today have a lot more power that cars or 10 or 20 years ago, that extra power creates heat. Due to aerodynamic improvements there is less air sneaking in outside of the grill opening.

You are seeing the same thing on big trucks since 2007. EPA requirements on diesels are making them run hotter, with a resulting need for bigger radiators, which in turn require a bigger grill.

Like the Lamborgini Vaneno Roadster, Rob?


Looks like a prototype for the next Batmobile.

In Topic: GM is off to a good start in ruining the Camaro again

If a 4 cylinder Camaro ever came through the dealer for service I never saw it. They've had 3.6 liter V6's until recently. I do remember those SVO Mustangs ...man those were lil' smokers back then for sure!!

Sorry I meant 4 and 6 cylinders have been offered every year, but not always both. Camaros have mostly been 6s, but they did have a 4 available in the 3rd gen cars. Mustang has a fairly extensive history of offering a 4 cyl as it was available for 20 years in the 2nd and 3rd gen cars including performance versions with 4 cyl turbo models.

What some people seem to forget is the majority of these cars sold are base models, with less impressive engines not the high performance GT and SS models. A non V-8 Camaro or Mustang is nothing new.
