I defy anyone to not be stranded when the cam gear goes when you are on a
remote two lane highway beyond sight of any habitation. It happened to me
trying to come home from the Lake Tahoe National. I didn't even have a cell
phone back then and one wouldn't have worked there anyways.
Ron Hinz, was in my '63 Rampside.

I don't think Smitty was ever "stranded!" He always got her going. Even
when Spike had to push the tow car home with Spike still on the tow bar and
with police approval. Well at least they did not stop him when they spotted
Smitty in Spike! What about the one with Helen standing guard with a pistol
while Smitty was making the repairs. And you think Smitty is tuff!
Thats a great idea for a book of Smitty's escapades as well as any other
Corvair story. I will take three books.
