    I've had I think 10 convertibles over my life and would have another if I lived in a warmer climate.

    Joe, there were no automobiles built in the years 1943-45 because of War Production priorities.

    What you show is a 1941 Chevrolet with the front grille incorrectly painted.

    Ford Ranchero
    "The Chevrolet El Camino is the definitive American ute, but the Ford Ranchero was there first. While we could wonder why the Ranchero never got the love of its Chevy rival, we'd rather spend that time building a hot-rodded Ranchero with a nice burbly V8."

    I wasn’t sure that I would find something from 1945 that would be a vehicle that I would identify with and want to own, but I thought that I should at least look and see if there were any possibilities.
    What I found totally blew my mind ! !
    It turns out that there was a vehicle made during the war years, right here in Huntsville, Alabama, where I now live, called the “Keller Car”. The model that I really like was a wood-sided station wagon called the “Keller Super Chief”, and when I saw this, I just KNEW that this would have been my choice of vehicle from that era.

    Here is a picture of the Keller wagon, as well as a link with some history of how it came to be made here in Huntsville.

    THAT’s precisely what I really really want! A Vietnam War era 1/4 ton Jeep! Okay, to stay on topic I’ll take a Korean War era Jeep. Probably about the same thing but yeah, I want one.
    Of course, if someone threw in that Huey UH1-D, I’d be even happier!

    Okay, if I can’t have the Jeep, I guess this 1950-51 Studebaker will have to do.

    When I look at cars that came out in 1951, I'd be pleased with any of them. But, I'm not a complicated guy. I think I'd choose the 1951 Ford Country Squire.

    But then, the 1951 Hoffmann and the 1951 Iota 350 Sport are special, too.

    @Ken Anderson Ok with the Ford but I think you've got to be kidding about the other two.
