Hey Neil; I used to live in Red deer, till 1987. I opened a CIL paint store at 2310 Gaetz Ave, in a plaza across from Bower Mall.Sold it to CIL and moved back to southern Ontario. Just wondered if its still operating.

Hey CARLOS, I bet you could fit a pretty big fart can on that bike.
When I was fifteen I bought a moped so I could get back and forth to work. One day I confused it for a dirt bike and it never quite recovered.

I'm driving a '94 Z-28 Camaro that is stock,however here soon I'm going to throw in a new K&N air filter,not intake kit,because the old one is dirty as hell and has a small tear in it.it has 108,000 miles on it and for $6,995 its a pretty sweet ride,with 275 hp and 17-20 mpg without pushing it all the time its a great everyday driver.And no I dont abuse it cause I want it to last until I can afford the new fuel injected ram jet 502 that I want to dump in it,at that point it will be a weekend driver.

My current rides are a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 4.7-liter V8 and a 1995 Ford F-150.

For toys I have a 2002 Yamaha YZ426F and my daughter rides a 2003 Yamaha YZ85 both of which are competition motocross bikes.

The V8 Grand Cherokee is an amazing vehicle that really hauls a** and my F-150 is used to tote the motorcycles from track to track.

We took the Grand Cherokee to the drag strip for kicks one night and pulled 15.2 seconds @ 88.8mph with 60 foot times of 2.1 seconds. With a little practice we should be able to pull consistent times in the 14-second range with sub 2-second 60-foot times.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee’s 4.7-liter V8 is one of the best engines I have ever owned.

One of the most interesting vehicles that I have owned was a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T SE. The car was well optioned with the 440 Magnum and 727TF transmission and a Sure-Grip 8 3/4 differential housing 3.23 gears. I changed the gears to 3.55 for a little extra punch off the line.

The car is a numbers matching original. The engine was rebuilt to be a visually correct original but was balanced and blueprinted at some point by the Candies & Hughes race team out of South Louisiana.

Pictures and information about the car can be viewed on the following sites:

My daily is either a mini van or the truck in the picture with my name.
My newest project is a 1956 Ford F-100 that I bought from Hot Rod Kid for $900, but I didn't get the $12.00 knock-offs. I'll send some pictures after I get the model glue off my upper lip. <img src="graemlins/drunk.gif" border="0" alt="[drunk]" />
