It looks close but maybe a bit lighter. It could just be the lighting though.

No V8 signs on the 64 also missing a drivers mirror, and it is a 64 Ford driving by.

No 64. More like a 61 Ford.

Taken at the grand opening of the Pioneer Gas station on Burlington St East. Sort of became a forgotten place in the shadow of the overpass .

I didn't know that about Tim Horton either. He grew up on Hamilton on the "mountain".

Speaking of Studebakers:

 ......wow don't remember that.........would have been just below Steeles Ave on the east side of Yonge.

I used to cruise Yonge St regularly on weekends in my 57 Pontiac but missed this one......maybe because it was Studebaker (YIKES!!)

Groan ...biggrin

I knew about the "Timmies" Stude dealer.

A couple other facts:

The first ever Tim Horton's opened in Hamilton. Tim Horton Field (home of the Hamilton Tiger Cats) is nick-named "The Donut Box".

His daughter still owns a Tim Horton's in Cobourg ON. (my old town that I grew up in). There is a mini "shrine" to her Dad on it's walls.

Dundas, On 1982

 

 

Dundas 1982.jpg


 Boy is that ever a flashback. Miracle Mart & Miracle Food Mart must have been at the very end of the line circa 1982. I remember shopping at that very Miracle Mart in University Plaza, Dundas all the way back into the 1960s. I used to go straight to the toy section where they always had a good assortment of AMT & Revel models.

If you look at the link here to Google Maps 3-D you will see that spot today. The treed area beyond the plaza and to the left of the road used to belong to my dad. He owned that valley from 1957 through to the current millennium. Since it runs all the way back to McMaster University in Hamilton, his plan was to sell off a portion to the university for student housing. The Niagara Escarpment Commission decided to freeze the land without compensation or consultation, but he still had the privilege of  paying taxes for decades on this now unsalable piece of property.  He also used part of it as a sod farm until Dundas straightened the road (in the 1960s!) and took out his access road without compensation effectively ending the sod farm (they finally compensated him in a big way in about 2000).

 

I wish I had a picture, but also at University Plaza way out in the parking lot near the road you could expect to see a turquoise 1968 Olds 442. An employee at one of the stores owned it. I remember seeing it there from 1968 until about 1979/80. I later saw the 442 in a garage in a nice house in Dundas around 1984, so chances are very good that it is still around.

 

Another car I used to see at that plaza in the 1970s until about 1986 was an absolutely showroom condition 1966 Impala convertible in Lemonwood Yellow. It was not restored, it was simply maintained in showroom condition. It had a 327 but I was shocked when I saw a shift indicator in the dash for a Turbo Hydramatic (with L2 & L1 indicated).

 

Also across the road from he plaza is a low-rise apartment building. From about 1970 through 1987 you could be assured of seeing in the parking lot a very clean, stock original Desert Beige 1964 Biscayne 4-door with wheelcovers and blackwall bias-plies. It looked just like this one in the brochure except for the aforementioned wheelcovers & blackwalls.

Detroit 1964......this traffic jam would be a pleasure today not seeing any jelly bean cars next to you.

The time machine I'm building will have a button to send me back to one of these 'rush hour' jam ups to

share the NO Import road experience (save for one VW here.
