E's Vehicles: Olney Salem

Olney Salem
Pick-up Truck

The Salem, originally released by both Ford and Olney under different
model names, survives today only as an Olney model. Due to steadily
declining interest and sales in the small-truck market, Olney announced at
the 2055 IGVS (International Ground-Vehicles Showcase) in New York that
the Salem line will be discontinued with the 2057 models, offically
marking Olney's departure from the truck field. Overall reliability but
poor results in off-road performance testing make the Salem the ideal
truck for the suburbanite who just wants to drive a truck.

>>>>>[ That safe is a piece of junk. I rolled a Salem off a
highway once and the sucker caught fire. Someone actually
stopped to help me-- until the 'fireworks' in the back started
going off. Lost a belt and a half of good ammo. Any safe worth
its salt should be decently fire resistant. I almost think you
would do better with one of them little ancient ammo boxes
soldiers used to carry around...]<<<<<
