What they lack in size, they make up for in numbers... I have gone on fly-in fishing trips in Northern Ontario. As soon as the sun goes down, the mosquitos show up, by the thousands! You could go outside to admire the stars, but not for long - they'd find you in about 3 minutes! Beautiful country though! And great fishing!

John, that is one of my favorite cars ever. I like everything about it, the goofy fish emblems, the back is wild and I love it, really a favorite of mine.

Brian, ! love the sound your nailhead has! Is it a 401 or a 425? Knowing you the paint/body must be flawless on that machine! **drools** I'm certainly jealous as I go out to work on my rusted midwest Nova today.

It has the 401 it came with. And it is NOT "flawless" by any means. Not by a car nuts standards. It's a nice driver and the paint and body are nice. Every car is different, for other people that are expecting "show" kinda work, they are paying for it, they get it from me. But on my own car, it's nice but it ain't no show car. Heck, I am crazy sick enough about leaving it out in a parking lot as it is! If I had spent the time to make it "flawless", there is NO WAY I could be driving this every day leaving it out on the street. I couldn't handle that.

But thank you very much, to most people on the street, it's "flawless".

My 66 Elky gets driven on a regular basis.
Usually if I have it parked at home----daily.
(One of my cars is usually parked at the body shop as one of the employees
will take it to show-n-shines on the weekends and also drives it to events out of town)

Both the 59 and the 66 have battlescars and scratched up beds.
Don't care---I actually put stuff in the back of these cars.

The little Ranchero has a new engine waiting and it will soon spend some time
in the "working" area of the shop. This one is the most fun to drive (until I killed it), goes like hell----can park it anywhere.
