Harry, I work for a national company and have worked in Toronto a couple of times and am quite aware of the traffic in the GTA. Our head offfice is there (Concord) as well so I have been to Toronto a few times for training and trade shows as well. Traffic in Vancouver sucks just about as bad, much smaller geographically but the density is really high as we are trapped by mountains to the north and east, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the USA boarder to the south, that combined with a lousy infrastructure, not many highways and a bunch of rivers to cross = GRIDLOCK.
As for Monzaque when I get my car going if I could get it planned and the time off work I think it would be a riot to get a few h-body's together and make a caravan trip to the event. Maybe Todd (seniorsavage) will have his turbo hawk running by then and maybe he would be interested in making the trip. If he did he would trump me for coming from the farthest away cuz he's about 4 hours drive time west of me. And ya, no AC, no cup holders, no cruise, no ABS, no trunk (mines a hatchback). And as I type this we are in a heat wave with 33-37 degree highs close to 40 with the humidity. It's BYOF right now bring your own fan! Lol! Anyway I just think it's cool that you guys can get a bunch of H-body's together and the venue looks awesome. And ya, as I get older I really enjoy the AC, just had my non-AC square body out today and I had every window down and the draft windows cranked open and it was not so cozy, black interior doesn't help but that's what it came with from the factory, the bonus is it hides dirty way easier than red or white which were the only other colours that were avaialble with a two tone charcoal/silver exterior.

Hi All, I was at a cruise night this past wednesday evening and saw this fine Monza wagon. I invited the owner to come to the MONZAQUE but i'm not sure she will make it.

Good eye Ken, I'll bet you're right.

I have confirmation of an 11th car and possibly Cliff bringing his for 12.

Well, the 13th Annual MonzaQue is in the books and it was a record showing. 12 cars total. 2 Spyders, 1 Mirage, 1 Sport Coupe, 1 Monza 2+2, 1 Monza Coupe, 1 Cosworth, 3 Vegas, 1 Skyhawk and 1 Sunbird. Thanks to all who came to this years BBQ and a special shout out to Rick Marsh who drove 3,000 kms from Saskatoon to attend this year. No-one, I mean, NO-ONE can ever complain it is too far after seeing Rick make the drive. Michelle and I had a great time, as always, and are looking forward to a bigger showing next summer.

It was good to see some familiar faces and some new ones. As always Bryan and Michelle were excellent hosts and we had a great time.

It was also nice to get home without finding Tim stranded on the side of the road. I think the Cosworth is ready for Power Tour. :lol:
