Saw a IB M6 with summers on shagnappi when I came home from school. The owner actually abandoned the car and left. By the time I saw the car, it was all cover by snow. I felt kinda sorry for him. Weather here is pretty much fucked even tho we had a great winter this year. Thinking about moving to BC soon.

I live on the western edge of the city and we had well over a foot of snow, it got really bad about 5 blocks from home and then i got stuck in the drive way.


On the shoes Yes , they are on order. HREs are all custom made and takes about 6-8 weeks for delivery. They should be here soon

Also got a new bumper cover ordered so i can get rid of the gay front plate holder

Very nice. Can't wait to see them when they arrive. I heard the western part of the city was pretty bad. Glad you got back okay.

What are you doing with your current HRE's??

I have admired them since last year's meet. I'm going to have to pass though. An important peice of jewelery is my summer purchase which has unfortunately bumped my wheel search in the priority list. You will have no problems selling them as they are mint

Garage List
Glad I live in London, ON. ... remembering sitting in an airline in Edmonton in May (must have been 2003 or 2004) Captain came on the intercom "Sorry Ladies and Gentleman, we will be slightly delayed we will have to be de-iced again our wait to take off was too long" he went on "We will try to make up some of the time on our way up to Fort MacMurray" sure I was thinking more of the white stuff when we get there

I know the weather well in that part of our country lived and worked there for 27 years

You all have something to look forward too retiring in Southwestern Ontario
