Well all the time we spent at the Toronto Autoshow was not spent with 'our own kind'-i.e. antique, or custom cars. We also checked out the hundreds of new cars, climbed in a number of them. norm's highlight was sitting in the drivers seat of a brand new Roll Royce. he wasn't allowed to put his feet on the floor mats! He tried for the maserati - but it was locked to all.
I checked out the electric scooters, unfortunately the top speed was 32km/hr. - not much use in traffic- maybe in a camp ground.
BUT THE PIECE De 'RESISTANCE for production cars is the new Volvo RESTRACTIBLE.
Available in May it starts at $56,000 Canadian. The top cantilevers into 4 pieces to slide back into the trunks in seconds. and leaves some
trunk space. The car is a 4 seater, smaller than my taurus
Remember Ford doing the retractible 45 years ago with its one piece top sliding into the huge trunk area? For all you young folks, or those without older brothers(my brother had one for a brief time in the early sixties), there was a beautiful example of one of those at the cruise national competition, but that picture is gone from the website now.
Now if we sold the oxygen
, and the cars, and talked to the mortgage company
ain't going to happen.
