It could be in the factory, on a ship, on a train -- or at your dealership!

Born in 1934, John Surtees was the only person in the history of motor sports to win world championships in both two and four wheeled competition.
He passed away peacefully on Friday, March 10, 2017
"He began racing motorcycles in his teens and was quickly a star. By the end of the 1950s, he had won seven world championships on two wheels. He then decided to switch to motor racing, and after a year splitting his efforts between bikes and cars, he joined the Yeoman Credit Cooper F1 Team in 1961.
Surtees' first Formula 1 victory came in 1963 when he joined Ferrari. That year, he also won the 12 Hours of Sebring sports-car race in a Ferrari with Lodovico Scarfiotti.
In 1964, he won the F1 championship in a dramatic finale in Mexico against Jim Clark and Graham Hill. Surtees won six F1 races in his career.
Late in 1965, Surtees suffered near-fatal injuries in a Can-Am race crash at Mosport Park in Canada, but he fought back to fitness and was soon winning F1 races again. He won a pair of F1 races in 1966 and one in 1967."

I signed up in mid-February, but since then my daughter plans coming for a visit from New Zealand and I may have to pick her up in Toronto on that day.
Its also the day before my birthday, which as we all know is a national celebration.
And of course there's all the Easter eggs to hide.
There's a lot of s**t happening !!
Seriously, I'll be there if I can. I hate missing free food anywhere.
Put me down for one, a definite maybe.
