I bought a Winchester table top meat grinder at a garage sale for $4, and sold it at the next gun show for $85

They say our Long Term memory goes first , so you needn't ( Like I really expected? haha)apologize for your error. Volvos are NOT the only foreign import.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Corona

"In many countries, the Corona was one of Toyota's first international exports, and was shortly joined by the smaller Toyota Corolla, providing buyers with a choice of a larger car, with similar operating expenses to the smaller Corolla. The Corona was Toyota's second sedan in their hierarchy of products, just below the Crown, until 1968 when the Corona name was used on a larger, all new platform called the Toyota Corona Mark II, which gave buyers more interior space while still offering dependable, affordable performance."

You, being quite a lot older than I, would be familiar with such antique imports.

It's good to know where you get your "encyclopedic" knowledge... from the Internet - and practical experience.

It was easier to attach the wiki link than to type it all out. My ex-MIL had one of these, when I was dating her daughter, back in the early 70s. I should have taken that as an omen, and moved along, but alas, youth and hormones.....

Heard you could see the beer can labels inside the door panels on the sheet metal.
