  1. Woa, wait a minute. What about everything about these little cars that work and is good, and furthers the mistique...... Like the rear view mirror, the cup holder, the..... the..... Ya, well the rims never gave me trouble. Neither has the fuel filler cap. So there !!
  2. I understand that Smart Car Snogging might become a medal sport at both the next summer and winter Olympics. It’s obviously quite dangerous and is really a sport for the young. We ‘young-at-heart’ folks will only hurt ourselves.
  3. This is one of my old haunts. I spent several missing years of a 35 year sale career there, trying to perfect the ultimate ‘rum’n coke, squeeze of lime’. Came very close hundreds of times Personal afternoon sales meetings with colleagues used to be the norm, till MADD slapped us all, including my liver, into reality..... thankfully. Note.... I’m still striving for perfection, but at a slower pace and only at home after hours. Sign up 1. Liz & Glenn 2. Bill 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  4. Glad everyone seemed to enjoy it. When people take home leftovers from a small, personal-sized pizza, you know there was lots to eat. Good grub at a decent price. My new mantra.

  6. Just a reminder about tomorrow (Tuesday) night’s Smart outing in Mt Bridges. It’s only about 10km west of London. Weather should be cold but clear, meaning good driving conditions. Here’s the address They’re located near the main intersection of town.... the only traffic light. It’ll be an old fashioned family restaurant face fill. No balsamic reduction drizzled artistically on square plates here. I guarantee no one will leave hungry. The atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. Look forward to a fun night and come on out with the gang. SIGN-UP 1) Bill 2) Ron & Dot 3) Larry & Gail 4) Ralph 5) Liz & Glenn 6) 7) 8) 9) 10) Like this
  7. Ya, well I bought a third Smart car to make good and sure I couldn’t put another damned thing in me single car garage. And you know what?..... I can’t !!
  8. Looking at these pictures, the head that appears to be sitting on Snowball’s roof is a future Canada1 owner (I must have been really impressed by your new car Mike). I’m not in the resteraunt group picture, as I was probably still outside drooling and unable to stand up straight. It was a very good Smart car group evening !!
  9. Mine looks like this..... Canada1 No. 01/10 Thanks for the info Mike. Ain’t the Smart world strange. Now, back to alternators, batteries and other electrical charging gremlins.
  10. I had an ‘82 Cadillac that developed a sudden loose alternator belt that was not charging. It only got me about 100 Kms before everything shut down and I coasted into a gas station for a belt tightening and a boost to restart. Off topic, but do you know if the other Canada1s have the same dash plaque as you have ??
  11. It was discussed and agreed to at the January outing that’s it time to go ‘slumming’, away from expensive, high-class bistros. So.....The Villiage Pizza & Restaurant in Mt Brydges (10km west of Lambeth), the source of our grub d’joir for the next outing. It’s the quintessential Mom&Pop restaurant, with good food and no pretentiousness. And yes, they’re licensed. They don’t have a website, but the do have this...... And they have information posted on Facebook with reviews (mostly great)..... I wanted to add a couple of photos of their take-out menu, but this site has a 2MB limit, plus I don’t know what I’m doing. They have daily specials and have agreed to stay open as long as we are there. Kick off time is 6 to 6:30, as usual. See y’all there, for some serious face filling.

  12. I have generally been using diesel from Flying M truck stop on Hwy 4 just south of the 401 (note... NOT the Flying J truck stop at 401 & Highbury). They fuel up hundreds of big rigs and buses a day, so their product in storage is fairly fresh. They are usually about 5 cents/litre lower on both gas and diesel than anyone else around, including London. I always supplement with an additive. Always have and always will. btw.... my backup has always been Esso diesel.
  13. My Canada1 has power steering also, so it looks like it was ‘planned’ as standard on this model.
