Years ago I had a 65' Binder with the 266 cu in I think it was. Three on the tree and add on AC. It was a tank.
This one has almost no rust spots except for 2 about 3” long pieces on the bottom of the tailgate and a small (2”x2”) spot on the bottom of the front drivers side fender. I’m hoping to keep it as original as I can and just rebuild/refurbish the engine and what not to keep it a tank

These are not the firearms you're looking for.

I think you should just go ahead and do one of those old bread trucks as your project! Not many folks would have one of those!!

Plus, no one would mess with ya if you were to park in a loading zone.

When I was a young squirt living on our farm my uncle had an old 48 3/4T Cornbinder that we used as a work truck, it never left the farm, it always amazed me how much "stuff" we could put in the bed and it never seemed to squat down like these new trucks do, they WERE built like a tank.

Picked up my new project today and I can’t wait to get into it: 1964 International pickup 1100 series with a 305 V8 3 on the tree all original never been molested…down to the original IH hubcaps

edit: this engine is a 304 not 305
I kinda like it. I'm partial to international trucks now that I have the M1 garand to go with one.

My dad and I have a restored 77 international Scout Traveler that was my grandads, so I'm a bit partial to them...now that you mention it a IH garand would look great in a gun rack across the back windshield

Good points and seems accurate to me. Is there any level where you think a person should change their business based on what these companies support?
That’s a really tough question. I think that where someone shops/who they pay money to is their private business. My previous employer/chairman of the company was huge into art. He has an entire institution for the arts and is a huge benefactor of the arts. We were in the office one day having a class in the conference room, and one of my coworkers started touching and rocking a Robert Stackhouse sculpture that was hanging from the ceiling. When I told him not to touch it, explaining that it was an original piece of art and likely worth more than he makes in a year; I got this response: “oh, that’s dumb, it just looks like a bunch of painted wood hanging from the ceiling”. My point is that the views and beliefs held by one or two members of the leadership (who are typically the decision makers for charitable contributions) are typically not held by the entirety of the company. It’s just everyone else’s job to shut up and be an employee. I tend to base where I do business based off of my personal experiences with the product, it’s quality, and how it applies to my life, as opposed to what some big shot controlling the companies money thinks.

judging a company based upon charitable contributions or personel policies can be exhausting. To be truly in tune with this, you have to do endless research. GM literally made stuff for the nazis at the start of WW2, and even has marketing material with swastikas on it. Henry Ford was a socialist. Toyota made stuff for the imperial Japanese army. Heinz condiments are associated with big time contributors of the Democratic Party. Or a good one if you’re religious: look at how many businesses are open on Sunday. That’s a blatant and obvious disregard for the fourth commandment. If you’re religious, then that removes an awful lot of businesses that you can support. The list goes on and on. I watched my dad literally get so involved with this thought process that it consumed him, affecting his health and mental well-being. He would go without certain foods , products, or medicine because it was owned by someone he didn’t like or had something in it he didn’t like. Everything is a scandal, everyone has done the wrong thing at one time or another; and thankfully, everyone has their own beliefs. That’s the beautiful thing about our nation. Without allowing some of that variety and exposing ourselves to people or products that believe in things other than things we believe ourselves we create an echo chamber to live in and become flat and one dimensional as humans.
