Kettle rides
« on: March 10, 2021, 02:58:40 AM »
As we search for all our kettles and add them to our collection, what do you use to pick them up? I use either my 69 bug or my63 Dodge project (Arthur).

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Its a blast to drive. Slant 6 and 3 on the tree. being a younger guy (38) most in my age bracket dont know how to drive it. Arthur (I call the truck that) definitely has a learning curve.

Then again, Seeing a Mothership on top of the bug would be awesome!

We can make that happen. The roof rack on the 69 can hold the weight

@22ket~tle 100% true

@1spacemanspiff I remember that! I had a blast meeting you and talking about the 69. If you are ever back in this neck of the woods let me know.

OK, but it has to be right side up with legs on.  Not upside down.

I’d drive that WW 63 Dodge.... sweet old sled

My stepdad taught me how to drive a three on the tree in a mid 70s Ford econoline van. I took my driving test in a 75 Chevy Nova, that had been converted to a four speed manual.

Current kettle hauler is a Ford F-150 5.0 with automatic trans and cold A/C.

This is starting to sound like an interesting thread in it's own right. I'll start it.

My 2007 Yukon Denali XL has brought home many kettles.... didn’t get pics of them all, but it’s a great Weber hauler.
