By the way everyone, I just realised after LA pointed out the tubing and cast intakes of the 57-58 Pontiac I had posted BOTH. The first was the 57 but later posted the photo of the cast 58. So LA gets it.

Here is the site where I got the photos. Click here Some great photos and education on GM fuel injection can be found there.

Dodge made convertible Dakota pickups . What years were they produced and how many were made? Any extra elaboration is welcome.

Ha! Were those the ones w/the passenger seat in the bed? Or maybe I'm thinking of something else. My neighbor had a wrecked Dakota ragtop at his shop I saw from a distance, covered. I know the year but anything else I'd have to cheat to know.

Edit- Nevermind, I was thinking of a Brat having the bed seats.

Made from 89 to 91 There were 2842 made in 89
909 made in 90
8 made in 91

Made by the American Sunroof Co. Now the American Specialty car co.

Bob

One thing that's wrong in the article is it said first ragtop P/U since the model T, they made them after the T. Ford made them until 1934.

Bob

In 2003 ASC started making the SSR

35 Terraplane, you got it. The last 8 that were made in 1991 were built to fullfill there contract as they came up short in 90. You now have the floor

Thank you.

In 1860 a fellow by the name of Lenoir, patented an engine.

What did it run on? How did it get spark?

And what was different about it?

I am not going to google this. If you hadn't asked about what it ran on, that is the only thing that throws me. But the rest of the description sounds a lot like a car which had a very odd motor. The crank was connected to the car while the MOTOR spun around the crank! It was a radial engine and spun around the crank.

I am going to make that my guess. It had a magneto and ran on gas.

I just googled it, I was a thousand miles off!

Let's see if someone else knows without googling.

I really don't know what to give for a clue, if anyone is ready for one.

Ok, I give up I will win with the google.

It ran on coal gas and air.

It's ignition was a "jumping spark".

It was a two stroke that the charge was not compressed before ignition.
