WIX is honored to present funds to each of these students.”

Applicants must be an FFA member, retain a minimum 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale and intend on a major in agricultural engineering, agricultural mechanization, agricultural power and equipment or diesel mechanics.

Getting nostalgic about the good old days is easy, but many forget the struggles of the day.

Last month, I purchased a 1982 Chrysler New Yorker for $1,500. The car was previously owned by a technician who was moving to Arizona. It had 67,000 original miles. It would be my “beater with a heater” for this winter.

Under the hood is a 318 V8 with a Lean Burn feedback carburetor with a rudimentary engine control module attached to the air cleaner. The system could adjust the spark advance, change metering in the carburetor and even open a solenoid to vent the evaporative emissions from the fuel tank.
