Back in the day, I was Middle School champion in the high jump. (5’2 1/4” even the measurements were in old money). Don’t think it will help me now though.

Very impressive indeed. Always amazes me how many manufacturers produce "gunpowder" vans - was there a lot of it moved around at one time or another?
Tomorrow will be a good day!
