Hi Bob:

Thought I would reply off list.

When I read your post  my first thought was that this is indeed a Small
World.  I grew up in Junction City, Oregon, graduating from High School in
1962.  In 61 and 62,  I also ran an Arc 5/T-17/Webster band spanner on 75M,
in my Blue,  two door,  51 Ford with two,  two Barrel Carbs.  As I recall I
had some difficulty in occasionally snapping one of the rear axle shafts.
The radio gear came from an Army Surplus store in Albany, Or.  A J-38 was a
nickel from a big barrel. Still have it, but the ARC 5 and the Ford are long
gone.   Hope you don't mind my sending you my memory.

73, Larry
