Dick, the only repair needed was replacing a burned out headlight on the way home in Juneau. Also had an oil change at a Jiffy Lube in Fairbanks. Gas in Alaska was between 2.80 and 3.15 most places. On the Dalton it was 5.50 and 4.77. In Canada between 4 and 5, over 8 in one place! Other than a few rainy days altering our plans, the trip went Extremely well and EXCEEDED our expectations! Every day we were amazed by the beauty. And having the car perform flawlessly , I did not give it a second thought, even travelling through the very remote areas of our trip.

Pictures look great. Looks like you had a really great time. I can see why you want to go back. Will you use the Pinto next time?
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

I made the road trip to Fairbanks in 1965. The Alcan was gravel! About 1000 miles of it! I went to school at the University of Alaska. In 2010 we flew for our 40th anniversary.  I'd love to do the road trip again but I'm pushing 78.
