  1. I’ve lived an hour and a half drive from Canada since 1970. Going to Canada is like driving across town. Been there so many times I lost count. When I turned 18 the drinking age up there was 18 so we would drive up Friday after work and spend the weekend bar hopping and sleeping in my friend’s van. Always came home speaking “Canadian”. That’s what its all aboot, eh? Spent lots of dolers on beer. When I was in Roanoke, Virginia a guy there accused me of being Canadian, said I had an accent. So, yeah, I speak Canadian, eh?

  7. Nice longboard. Have you ever tried the street luge? A buddy modified a couple of longboards and we ran down a long, twisty road near his house. Most enjoyable.
  8. Our generation invented skateboards. The next generation perfected them. The generation has made a career of skateboarding.
  9. I believe there is a locating pin on the later ones that isn’t on the earlier Zs.
  10. Got the gas tank out of the 72 yesterday. Looks real good inside, only a tiny bit of surface rust inside, the outside is covered in a thick layer of undercoating. Now for cleaning and preparing for reinstalling.
  11. The wheels I ordered several months ago finally arrived. So now I can mount the tires I bought last winter. Can't wait to get them mounted and on the car.
