No use covering the Chevy, it aint gonna start anyway.
I remember my Father doing this on a much more modern car. Probably a hold-over from his Dad which would put it in the T era. Wonder if it really did any good. Can't see it myself.
My father would place a blanket over his cars on cold days and when it got real cold he would run an electric cord with a 100 watt light bulb and place it next to the oil pan. He always told me as long as you do it when the oil is still hot it will help to keep it thinned out and aid in starting the car. That was before multigrade oils and man made oils.
"No use trying to cover it up, Mister. We still all know what it is"
Good one Richard E!
Great photo. Thank you Jay, and all.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Is it just me or is that Model T missing a hood and radiator? Look at the bumps for the headlights and then look how far back the first high point in the blanket is.
Maybe that high point is the family dog trying to suck up the last drop of heat from the engine??
