I read where the high temp in Fairbanks will be -34 degrees today. Will anyone be using their Stovebolt today up there?

I spent 4 years in Fairbanks in the Army, -20 was common Andy he coldest I saw was -54. Strange things happen to cars in extreme cold, shocks freeze up and ride stiff, brake calipers can freeze and get stuck (you can usually pump the brakes and get them to release).

My brother was stationed in Fairbanks for some time and after looking at the pictures decided I didn't want to go.

......however, where did i end up? The U.P. of Michigan. Worst winter on record at that time. 66/67
While working on the runway one night I asked tower the "wind chill". Their answer, -65. No place for cover on the runway! ugh.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I have lived in the U.P. of Michigan for 40 years now and don't know why. I am just about done with my first stove bolt resto(37) and can't wait for spring to take it for it's first spin..that should be in July 😵

Lolol. And we complain about western Pa. Dont know why we live here either, but obviously not as bad as up there. I hate cold weather. So anywhere thats touches freezing mark gets to me. 90 instead of 9 anyday..

It's finally winter here near Anchorage (the banana belt of Alaska). I think it crept up to minus 15F today.
For your enjoyment, here's a couple pics of my chassis and misc body parts in cold storage. This was before we got any snow to speak of.
I spent a little time in Fairbanks area when in the Army wandering around in the woods at minus 40. Not bad if you're dressed for it. Uncle Sam provides good stuff like bunny boots and multi-layer parkas. Have also seen it go from minus 40 to plus 40 in 24 hours. We were peeling down to our t-shirts. grin
I never experienced it, but have heard stories of people driving away from the treads on their tires.
