Kinda new from Yellowknife
« on: September 21, 2011, 03:49:22 PM »

Greetings
 
Kinda new from Yellowknife, NWT, Canada, Kinda. I'm on a couple of other Mopar sites also and know through postings there the moderator and a number of folks on this site.
 
I'm a long term Mopar C Body buff having started driving a 1965 Chrysler Windsor 2dr ht in 1974. The car is now sadly long gone. Sold after I bought my 1966 Chrysler 300 convertible,  in 1978, which I still own. I've bought and sold a few since then but still have my trusty slab side. I am in the architectural profession and have had the privilage of providing design services to our local Chrysler dealership which was a real pleasure.
 
I'll pitch in worthless information and colourfull stories as time moves on.
 
Regards

Welcome, Gene!! About time we got another Canuck on board. The guys here are pretty good, but we get a little rowdy at times.

Rowdy? I can't even count the number of times I have been chastised for doing more than spelling political.

Greetings

In no particular order;

We are having one of the best falls in recent memory. No sleet, no snow, no frost, not even temps below +5C. The leaves are yellow, but i've even got 90 miles on my vert this year ! ! !

Not that i'm elderly or anything but I am in my mid fifties. Soon, at our local Wednesday night gathering we will need a Geritol cart. One of the younger members, ( no age given to protect the innocent ) stated that he did not know that 300's were made back in the sixties . . .

I still try to keep a post or two on the old C body board. It's hard to believe that it goes back to 2001 or so.

Of course i've met Peter in real life back about 4 years ago. I think it was in Red Deer at the August Mopar meet with Bill.

Regards
