Cold weather got here early this year and I came nowhere close to achieving my goal, but got some more done.

I found this old paint on one of the window frames and thought my new paint matches the color really well.

These were in an old GMC truck catalog from the 50's and I found it interesting.

Most people don't know this but GMC/Chevy and IHC where some of the first production engines that used a full flow oil lubrication system and not the old "splash" system use by Ford and others back then. I think it had to do with keeping their military contracts, that is just my opinion though.

Interesting to know, thanks rustystud.

How did that help them keep their contracts?

With the full pressure oil system you can take your vehicle on most any incline with no worries about oil starvation. Also it provides for a higher revving engine so more power, plus you get a much longer engine life.
If your the government agency procuring military vehicles wouldn't you want the best available ?
