  There was a device in my Volvo 245 to channel cold air into the footwell. Much more useful!

  K!

  In fact, there actually was a device to channel the heat of the engine into the cab in these Macks.

    Perhaps this was before the advent of cab heaters.

      It was a relatively common feature, back then. Wonder why they choose that instead of the front, in the airstream, position. Here's a Mack truck with the same arrangement.

        Wonderful pic Diego, isn't that radiator in the middle of the car something!

        Well done Kerry, you nearly nailed it, I thought Renault as soon as I saw that photo.

        Wouldn't a 1/72 scale model of one of those be nice.

        Yes, I've seen many of those Renaults in the book "Les Camions de la Victoire" (that besides lorries or trucks also deals with automobiles, motorcycles and bikes). They're fascinating in the style and variety of chassis and bodies, since many of these large cars were taken to military service from civilian sources. Here's a survivor and good example of "Gris de fer bleuté" paint:
