  8. It was suggested and agreed upon that we should take a nice drive to Sarnia for the July outing. The Wharf Fish & Chips‎, 581 Murphy Road, Sarniadirections Once again, Glenn has agreed to fight his sister and brother-in-law for a senior’s discount for everybody. Ya, many of us are seniors anyway, but just think of how much the youth will benefit. Start time is set back a bit, to 6:45’ish, due to distance travelled. I borrowed the directions above from the June 2015 post, the last time we went there. See y’all.Sign up:1. Bill2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9. 10.

  10. Oil & filter + air filter for the Canada1 at Glenn’s today. Just over 25,000km on the clock.
  11. My problem is fast left signal and slow right signal, but only when the headlights are on ??? (‘05 450 chi also) I’m going to replace all the light bulbs in the car to see result. I’ve tried 4 or 5 of the ‘special’ DOT boxes. Were these cars designed to die spectacularly in a blaze of glory, or just fall apart ??
  12. All 12 that signed up above plus Ralph and Monica. Total attendance was 14. Great turnout! The wind whipping your hair while you’re scarfing down your burger is truly a Canadian thing. Kind of a ‘restaurant Sally meets camper Joe’. GTs did offer blankets to anyone that wanted one. Liz found it a life saver. Maybe next month we’ll try for a weather-proof restaurant with a roof and 4 walls. Suggestion was made for The Wharf in Sarnia again. Nice drive plus great fish&chips and pies. I’ll post when I confirm with Glenn.

  14. FYI.... GTs no longer takes reservations, but I’m told there’s lots of seats and lots of parking !! So let’s see everybody down to Port Stanley for a 6:30 kickoff. We’ll have a pleasant drive, a nice dinner followed by an ice cream chaser at Shaw’s. Forcast is for a high of 18C and 30% chance of showers, which usually means sunny. SIGN-UP 1. Bill 2.

  15. Legendary’s clientele are among the biggest and best collectors in the world. I was hoping a little word-of-mouth info passed among some of them might stimulate interest in the car. Nothing yet. Legendary themselves shied away from promoting the car (either buying it or consigning it) saying it didn’t ‘fit their image’ dealing in unique, collector and high performance vehicles. I believe the car certainly qualifies as a collector vehicle, but both the sales manager and the owner disagreed. Maybe all our club members could start a write-in campaign, anonymously looking for quality Smart cars as ‘the next hot collectable’. I’m just kidding, of course. Please don’t. Who knows, once I market and advertise the car for sale, it may pique the interest of some high-end collectors in the brand. I think even you Mike will sell Snowball on the first or second seven figure offer you get. I hope to take the Canada1 to RM Autos in Chatham (another world-class high-end sales and restoration organization) next weekend.... weather permitting.... where they are holding their second annual open house. ‘Coffee $ Cars’ brings out a surprising number of local vehicles for what amounts to a top quality show ‘n shine. Open to all brands, their facility is first class. Very interesting to see an MB 300SL, a Bugatti and a couple of Packards in various stages of restoration. Maybe my car will catch someone’s eye, or info may spread to others about the car’s availability. One can only hope.
