The Pacific Northwest Tour, 2003

Bits and Pieces


John noted some problems with his A3 tracking on the first trip up to Cascade. On the way through Baker City, we spent some time at a truck stop adding some spacers to the wheels on the front right and rear left. Problem Fixed.

George Hope sent me this pic of me with the two Molsons. Both are pretty cool.

Molson is the dog to the left, whereas I am holding a Molson Beer in my hand. This pic was taken at Dayton.

Both are fine examples of what Canada can produce!!

Coming back down from the Camas Prairie Trip, I was givent the chance to run Carl Vanderspeks' "Big Blue". Just behind is John Blacks A.

This car sits on cast wheels, is silky smooth, has sprung seats, and Vista windows - looks like a project for my shed!

My apologies to the young gentleman, his name is the subject of a mental blank. The young lady is Sarah (Kelley).

Why photos of an Auto?

This is a Mitsubishi Diamante - known in Adelaide, and Australia, where they are assembled as a Magna. (The auto is a previous model to that on the Mits webpage).

When I saw this, I had to look twice. The finnesse on this was outstanding, showing the quality that Australia can produce.

I missed out on seeing a Pontiac GTO (our Holden Monaro) close up, although there were a few around.

Keep an eye out for more Oz cars; possibly even the Holden Ute Badged at an El Camino

The photos were taken at Lewiston.

Sitting on Ted Hohiesels M9 is me and Nancy Frost - Gotta convert more to two stroke!

 This Heisler is located in a park in Lewiston, Idaho, and was in good shape.

The photo was taken on the last day of the trip, on the way back from Boville.

Thanks to Ted Hoheisel for allowing me the thrill of running his little baby!
