Trixie made in record time! Not that I needed that…

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Trixie made in record time! Not that I needed that…
Some of you may recall that we sold our home in Ontario and now are taking possession of our new abode in Nova Scotia.

Well I made some calls and had Trixie shipped out.

Talk about fast delivery! The Polara left Welland about 11am Monday and arrived at 8:45pm tonight in Kingston, NS. Nice enclosed trailer cost a bit more but worth it.

Pulling up Stakes & moving to new stomping grounds

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Pulling up Stakes & moving to new stomping grounds
Hi everyone,
In light of a number of life changing events, we are pulling up stakes and headed to Nova Scotia.

It's based mostly on family moving out to NS & economic reasons as well to slow the bleeding financially for us with me being on disability for the past 1 or so with no real solid possibility of returning to permanent active employment any time soon.

We finally settled on a place near family(grand kids) allowing for room for friends & family from where ever they might travel from...

Radio Suggestions for my Polara convertible

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Radio Suggestions for my Polara convertible
Hi guys

While I am waiting for the nice weather I am shopping a replacement aftermarket radio for Tricia

When I got the Polara in 2013 it had an older 1970’s Craig am fm with a cassette tape deck
It works well for low volume listening but once on the road it can’t handle any higher volumes and the speakers swamp out
I thought it was the speakers and replaced them with the same results
I thought it was the low dollar speakers I had bought so I bought a pair of mid $$$ range units only to...

Not only did I receive my grandfather’s auto mechanics license but now I received this.:thankyou::thankyou::thankyou:

It's a tribute sign of my grandpa’s auto service sign!

It’s a recreation of the original store front signage.

It was created by my brother that was a professional sign painter back in the early 80’s using an original metal advertising sign for an auto shop.

It’s mostly hand painted with silk screening.
The actual Vic’s Auto Service lettering appears to be vinyl as it’s...

Cool Personal family Heirloom received last night!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Cool Personal family Heirloom received last night!
Having brothers that like to collect family heirlooms is a good thing!
They collect it all and sometimes they share.

One of my brothers was visiting last night & know that I was a licensed wrench previously decided it was time to forward this to me.

It's my grandfather's "Testimonial of Merit" that he received April 20th, 1923 in Motor Mechanics.
