CRUISE NIGHT

YOU may not have to be as ‘OLD’ as me to find some of our modern day events to be much watered down, compared to the historical event that it is supposed to represent.  Case in point: the ‘Cruise Night’.  While the weekly cruise night held in RED DEER, Alberta is a great draw for… Read more »

STATISTICALLY SPEAKING

MAYBE IT’S JUST ME:  It seems that e-bay (kijiji) and Facebook keep stats if you have a page or are a registered seller.  In particular there is the response rate or time stat.  In my case, it is a couple of days- or never. You may wonder why. YOU may have noticed I can come… Read more »

RUST VALLEY

HARD TO BELIEVE that someone like me could approach any subject with an open mind.  If you caught my Facebook post, you saw that I called Rust Valley Restorations a “train wreck”.  In this particular instance, any publicity is good publicity. SOME OF YOU may remember a posting shared on Face Book of a cache… Read more »

IF YOU HAFTA ASK YOUR WIFE…

ONE OF THE GEMS that was lost when we updated the format of this website was my rant about this topic: “IF you hafta ask your wife… you ain’t gettin’ it.”  One of the things that earned my wife ‘keeper’ status was when I ran my potential purchase of a retired race car/ pro-street Camaro. … Read more »

NO STALGIA!

NOSTALGIA is what this website, project vehicle sales, and used parts operation is all about.  If none of us were fond of what we did and drove in the past, we would all be lining up for our self-driving electro- shuttles. There are certainly times when I no longer want to be a part of… Read more »

New Year’s Message

“You didn’t have to be a Dick about it”.   Sorry if I offended you, snowflake.  In order to prop up the year- end, I posted a couple of ‘boxing days’ specials- selling guess what?  BOXES.  8 foot long truck boxes to be exact.  One reply was “I need a short box.”  Well, sister, do you… Read more »

HEEERES JOHNNY!!!

AFTER a mercifully longer ‘FALL’ than we are generally used to, I am certain winter has begun.  With this latest dump of snow, and the fact that I saw more southbound geese while shoveling our driveway, my hopes of seeing a brown Christmas are dashed.  The good news is that our bird feeder has a… Read more »

IS IT JUST ME?

WE have all kinds of things that drive us crazy.  Lately, this isn’t even driving distance, but more like a walk?  I cannot watch the news without wanting to throw something solid through the T.V.  So many examples of SHEER STUPIDITY- supposedly from people who are supposed to be world leaders, and then there are… Read more »

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE AD BEFORE YOU REPLY

Can we blame it on the educational system or FaceBook? One of the frustrating things about trying to do business in a digital world is that the more technology does for us, the less people want to do for themselves.  A lot of the time when someone replies to an ad, it is often apparent… Read more »

HAVE ANOTHER BOWL OF STUPID

SOME of you may have noticed I sound a little grumpy when I answer the phone.  There are reasons aside from the fact I am generally that way.  You may have caught me elbows deep in something greasy- and not just a cheeseburger.  Your call may have been one in a succession of ‘idiot’ phone… Read more »
