It was dark and I was approaching the cross walk at Cathedral Street so I didn't want to run anyone over but I believe it was a Flying Spur... but I could be wrong. Definitely a Bentley and not the Chrysler 500C that someone has/had with a grille styled to look like a Bentley grille.



Yep it is a Bentley, Dark Blue Four Door. Nice looking rig.

watercooled blue Vanagon Westfalia just down the road from the in-laws cabin near Point Leamington and passed it on the TCH heading east as it turned into the Gambo highway.

No photos. I suck at taking pictures while drving.....

However, I did see this when I was buying new kayak j-saddles from my truck.....

That looks like the car the guy across the street from my parents rebuilt. It used to be blue, also has a bigger motor then the original if I remember correctly. Also I believe it is a 72 or 73.

Spotted Syncro ate vanagon westy with what might be a diesel conversion on the weekend. NS plates. I'll likely have opportunity to see it again this coming weekend and if I do I'll grab a photo.

From my office window, I saw two black or navy mkIV golfs essentialy racing eastbound on PPD today. Heard the noise first (open-ish exhaust) looked out and guy in left land got hung up by traffic.

Dudes, you're going to give us all a bad name.

yeah I am an old crumudgeon.

I probably give us a bad name on a regular basis. I just love the sound of the turbo spooling.
