Ain't cold weather great?

I grew up in the sixties, in northwest Michigan. With snow "a-hole deep to a ten foot indian", as my dad used to say.
Many times it would get down to the minus figures for days at a time. I had a 6-volt Volkswagen beetle as a beater. Change the oil to ten weight in november and on really cold nights, keep the battery in the barn with the cows.. Then, in the morning, run it down the steep 180 ft. driveway while cranking the starter, in second gear.. Usually started when the other stuff wouldn't. But no heat till you drove it ten miles.. Those were the days!!!
