I can’t say how long it’s been since I last posted something here.  It’s been that kind of year.  In the last few years we have been warned about some ‘pandemic’ somewhere else in the world- which didn’t amount to shit.  This one is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish.  Started in a Chinese fish… Read more »


     My dad was well known for liking a good joke. One of those was a little figurine of a toilet. It had a lift up lid; on the underside was printed Goodbye Cruel World. In the bowl was a little man in the process of being flushed down the toilet.  As is often the… Read more »


ONCE AGAIN: F&#K OFF.  I am Canadian, we spell it LABOUR- not labor.  So, take your spell cheque- make that spell check, and stick it where the sun don’t shine. Cheekiness aside, I have to be the only one who does not like long weekends? It could be the fact that I haven’t had a… Read more »


SNOOZE- YOU LOSE.  This oft heard phrase is most often in reference to being slow off the starting line in a DRAG RACE.  There are also those moments in life where one has ‘thought about it’ for too long.  One of those times happened in the last few days. A customer came out to the… Read more »


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 »


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 »


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 »


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 »


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 »

    THE LAST TIME…     As we go through life we have many occasions where we can say “The Last Time…”  Last Saturday 16 December 2017 was the last time I ate at The Burger Baron south of Red Deer.  After I placed my order, Sal Klemaledine (the owner of this restaurant- and the Burger Baron chain)… Read more »

    FIRST BLOG ENTRY OF Chrome N Rust 2.0! HERE is something that I need to point out: I want to begin this first new blog entry by stating that our issues with the ‘BANK’ are behind us.  I won’t get into any details here, and frankly, it’s none of your business.  Since we did not win… Read more »
