A grand day out

We went for a drive in the countryside west of Toronto and visited the Halton County Radial Railway.

"Founded in 1953, Halton County Radial Railway is Canada's first, and Ontario's only, operating electric railway museum. Situated at Stop 92 on the former right-of-way of the Toronto Suburban Railway, we offer the opportunity to enjoy a trip down memory lane with rides on a variety of restored street cars, radial and work cars, through 2 kilometers of scenic woodlands. Settle back to the creak of the leather seats and the clang of the gong as your car carries you back to a period around the turn of the century."

The folks there are very knowledgeable and friendly. The gift shop offers snacks or you can pack a picnic. We parked our smartcar beside a Morgan and the two soon became a conversation piece.

Keep on Cruisin'

We've been regular visitors at the Street Classics Shine and Show on Saturday nights in Etobicoke for the last couple of years. This friendly, laid back event is ideal for families or a fun evening out. Held in the Canadian Tire parking lot at1608 The Queensway (near the 427) from 5 pm to dusk, May to September this show has a special area for late-model cars of interest.

We met up with friends who drove the Cooper Mini seen here and a '56 Chevy with the custom plate "Rock 'n Roll" and had a great time.

She's finally here!

After an agonizing eight month wait, our phat red and black passion has arrived! We are thrilled to bits with our Trudi and are looking forward to our big road trip to California in July and August.
