I just love Frank Lavigne’s photostream… i have gone to visit Frank so many times this weekend… so yes.. Frank you are the third reason i am doing a classic blog… i so want to share some of these wonderful treasures…

Frank.. this one is a real gem.. i have studied it at length…. ohhh.. 7 or 8 times.. now… it gets better each time… and i was thrilled with the first visit… they have their whole life ahead of them… i hope their dreams came true.. i know there are a lot of dark days in life… but if they had a few little ones… who grew up onto wonderful adults… then i would say their dream came true…

Thank you Frank for sharing this treasure with us… tiandra…

So LinBow… now we are going to find out what kind of truck this is… it may take a while… but this blog is about finding out about the classics.. both with stories and with id…. i know that MR38 may have a good idea what this truck is… is.. he is some sharp…

Brother Ralf posing with dad’s car- a Meteor Niagara. Sun Life Company, many years later moved from Montreal, Quebec to Toronto, Ontario perhaps due to fears of Quebec separating from Canada. Thanks so much, Sherlock77 for I.D.’ing the car. You are good! Great Photos- too!!
