    Joe: Well, that was dumb of me. Indeed it is. I saw column shift and thought VEC. Corrected now. Thanks!

    Mike: I am not familiar with the CJ-2 gas tanks, but that certainly doesn’t look like a smart arrangement. Reminds me of the pinto and it’s filler hose that traveled over the exhaust (and would pop loose when rear-ended).

    Somewhere in my notes I have the names of the men in the photo. That’s a hog in the crate that just came from the pig farm which was on the main Cesor farm.
