February 2018 Feature Car


Man! Unless you have a first name that begins with a C---arl, or actually drive a '66, yes, I have a minimum of 2 but no Grandes and all be it parts of, it is tough to get any recognition for a quick visit and inspection of a mans 6 hour pre-Manitoba visit to the Pembina Triangle before that happened! wink

Congrats for being this months top dog!

I gotta say that is a quintessential shot of that thing!  I like that its far enough away so you can't see my massive bald head.  I remember rocketing through  Foam lake on my way to shed the Airstream this year and thinking that I really should do a quick stop but I know how those quick stops go though especially with a guy who has a most interesting place so I just didn't have the time to spare.  Sorry about that and I'll have to stop by in future to catch up.

Great car Ken! Congrats!

Love the year, of course, and the color is amazing on the Grande. We also get two for one with the old beauty that you have tagging along behind. 

I cannot believe that this is the first time that you have been at the top of the page with that great story.

I've done a lot of posts over the years on aspects of it so I figured that the guys might have seen enough, but then I recently thought that maybe it was time to sort of summarize the whole story so far especially since Todd seemed a bit desperate lately.

Ken, I'm getting kind of used to seeing the big yellow barge at the top of the page. It's gonna be sad seeing it leave next week... Us 66 Pontiacs have a bit of a dynasty the last couple of years.

It's gonna be a sad day when your car leaves the top Ken. It's been great. I wish you didn't have the shortest month!

I'm not actually leaving the forum; just that that the big yellow barge's time in the sun is over and I think it quite enjoyed it.

When singing about Canadian Poncho, the Eagles put it best Ken. "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."

Gotta say I'm not too happy with the camera work especially the part that shows my massive double chin.  It was cold though, so my neck had shrinkage.

That is a great video Ken. Although I must say, that yellow car looks to be neglected. I think you better let it go at a fire sale price to someone who will take better care of it. wink

I have to admit it has had to stay outside this winter mostly because my wife is slowly taking over the garage to store her stuff! This is one of the reasons I had to buy a smaller car.

As for the Big Yellow Barge its long term fate is uncertain....
