Wow, great pictures! And even better "history lesson" about Canadian cars/trucks. Cool stuff, and I wasn't aware of almost all of it.

I love this forum!!!

We ended up with a few coupons for free DQ cones from the car show, so after the show we went to the drivethru just for giggles and brought them to the square dance festival my wife was helping at. Turns out the drivethru window is above my rollbar, but we made it work. We waited quite a while at the window though, they were probably wondering why we hadn't pulled up to the window yet. I'm pretty sure they couldn't see us until they looked out the window and the icecream was already getting pretty melty. My son got covered in icecream on the roughly 8 min trip, and more melted on the way inside. My wife doesn't even like DQ cones, but said she just wanted to see how much of a train wreck it was going to be. It was pretty entertaining.

Last night on the way home we stopped at Wendy's for dinner, and my wife was towing the travel trailer so she waited at a nearby empty parking lot while I did the food run in the locost. No drivethru this time, but we got some funny looks driving around town with the smell of fresh cooked fries following us. Got home about 10pm, so I've driven the car at night a couple times now too.

Was that Slant 6 an aluminum block? Very rare if it was. The Aluminium blocked ones were the performance versions.
