Bears a bit of a resemblance to the part of the Bugatti Veyron that converts fuel (and huge amounts of money) into noise - the W16

It looks like that big submarine attacking squid from "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea".

Dave while those other two chumps are backslapping and chest bumping each other, you my friend got it!. That mess is the backbone and power plant of a Bugatti Veyron. Each one is handmade with no assembly line procedures. The're assembled on tables that lift from the floor and slide back and forth. At this stage of the build up it kind of looks like space junk.

Go for it Dave!!

Considering how they make so many millions of 'em I'm surprised they don't have an automated production line (a bit of humor here!)

OK - there were many US cars that had unique Canadian counterparts and many cars that were unique to Canada with no US counterparts. All the "big 3" did this.

Name 5 Chrysler products (including models) that were unique to Canada.

Well I know you guys don't have any paved roads up there because of ice and polar bears so they all must be four wheel drives or snowmobiles. The best Ian come up with off the top of my noggin is Manny Moe and Jack and Shemp and Curly.

I actually did own a snomo many many years ago. One of the worst ones ever made - it was such a POS that it was embarrassing - it ran like a dream on really hardpack but if you got into actual snow it would get stuck! And it wouldn't start worth a whee if it was cold out - you had to heat the engine with a propane torch to get it to light off! OMC should have stuck to making Evinrudes and Johnson outboards and NEVER made the Snow Cruiser!

Owned it for a year or so back in the 60's. Now I live in an area where snow comes so rarely that I don't think I even know anyone who has a sled and most locals have never even seen one!

Ok let me try, but I sure did us the internet.

Dodge Kingsway
Dodge Mayfair
Dodge Regent
Dodge Crusader
Dodge Viscount

It's the best I could do! They are all "Plodges"
Was I right --eh?

Yup - the Canadian Dodges were just Plymouths with a Dodge front clip & dash

Canadians got ripped off big time when they bought Dodges - and got driven nuts when they took a vacation in the US and had to get service! Parts were just not available!

Yes - those are all correct.

Others were Fargo trucks, Valiant Signet (Which was a Dodge Dart in the US) and the Plymouth Caravelle

You're up next!

I think I ought to get triple points for that. When I went to Wiki to get information by goggling Canadian Automobiles, Wiki came back with " They have cars in Canada? Why would they need cars in Canada? They don't have any paved roads!"

Here's one that we all know. I'll even give a early. It was made between 1910 and 1915.

Year and Make.

Isn't that the car that "Granny" drives with Tweety swinging in his cage and Sylvester running alongside?
