RE: SPOTTED


There's a tire shop next to my work. The owner has this 68 Beaumont which has been in his possession for 20 years. Originally sold out of Halifax. It's a driver and has a very stout small block/auto. He's upgrading to a stroker (383) in the next few months. I mentioned Poncho and he's been on here a few times.

My wife and I decided to explore a 4.5km trail about 20 minutes from home today. The weather was perfect and I found a few treasures hidden in the woods:

An antique plow:

What appeared to be an old Vauxhall. Can anyone confirm? 

Plate was from 1961 however that could have been added later by an owner as I don't think PEI had front plates back then (we don't now)

A 50's Ford F100. What I couldn't get over is how clean the frame was. Likely from not being on the ground:

An International pickup from the 60's:

I saved the best until last:

The body tag was sitting on the fender:

It decodes as a 59 Strato Chief 6cyl wagon. Pretty sure the colour is Harbor Blue

Last inspected in 1972. I bet she was pretty rusty by then

 I only have 2 answers-

1) Needs a big block and a 4 speed. 

2) Feature car.

Looks like an Anglia of Harry Potter fame.  I remember them well as my Uncle had one when I was a kid. His was a pale yellow with a black top, I think.  Always thought it was a neat little car.

Todd, pei had front plates forever, maybe dropped the front one in the last 20/30 years.

 Good finds!

I was also out with a neighbour in the bush below our place yesterday. Found a old farm implement with cool cast wheels that we are going to rescue via chainsaw and tow chain.

Many years ago, my buddy had one of those and called it his "Epidemic". I had the Vauxhall version (the Viva) and it was just as bad!

Our company mechanic is a die hard Ford guy and owns a few cool older Fords. Check out this funky 70's van he owns. He found it in a bog a few years ago. That bog must not have had much oxygen in it as the sheetmetal and floors are incredible on this van- especially since it is a PEI vehicle. I'm not sure what year it is as he was on a parts run when I was there. I do know it has a 302/4bbl and a C6 trans. By the inspection stickers on the windshield it was last on the road in 1983.

 NS diesel runs 4-10 cents cheaper than regular unleaded.
