    No idea. I'd bet it is Canada. We don't see a lot of them in the States and his lot seemed to have a lot of North American cars on it. The note under the video also said he was welding a snow plow to it.

    You'd think he would have picked up a Ford V8 instead of a Buick to replace the Ford flathead. :)

    God, it does the heart good just to see one of those things still moving. The Carrier has always been one of my favorite WWII vehicles.

    I'm not surprised that the owner is putting a snowplow on it. In Australia surplus carriers were commonly used postwar as farm vehicles, and they served in as many different roles in peacetime as they had in wartime.

    I think I've pasted this one before but it has some nice ones. How did cooling air get to the radiator? It seems that is is mounted midships in front of the engine.
