Now Available: Crosleyamino!

Illustration for article titled Now Available: Crosleyamino!

You young punks these days gotcher Sierracheros and Aztekaminos and yer whatnot, but back in my day we had to drive 100 miles through a blizzard in a Crosleyamino just to get to the little one-room schoolhouse! And when we got there we could only learn multiplication tables up to 5 times 5, because we couldn't afford to buy all the numerals! Featuring the highly-susceptible-to-corrosion COBRA sheet-metal engine, this little Crosley-based truck should warm the hearts of fans of Cars That Only Desperate Post-WW2 Buyers Would Purchase.

Vintage Racer -ready to go racing...

There is a guy out here in the Northwest who's restoring something very similar - the Morris Minor pickup. This particular truck was 1 of 2 that was used for road racing back in the day. I've been hunting all over the

place for some info or pictures online. Last I heard, he was planning on having it at the All British Field Meet Labor Day weekend in Portland.
