Last Updated: October 19th, 2008

Below is a list of cars that my family has owned since 1966. 
 
If you're reading the info, and come across the owners of the car they will go by the following:

Doug = Me 
James = my Brother
Victor = my Grandfather
 Dan = my Uncle 
Jim = my Dad
Line (pronounced Lynn) = my Mom

The list starts with the most recent purchase.
If there are 2 names to one car, that means it was either a joint ownership,
or the car was owned by one before given to the other. While some of these cars
were scrapped or sold for parts they still served us well.
Another way to get some money using your car is to take title loan
our through Titlemax. You can get a loan from Title Max
on your current car's value in as little as thirty minutes.

13 years of service.  Didn't have time to restore it. Donated to Bytown Fire Brigade.

This truck was originally City of London, Ontario, Engine 4, then Crash/Fire/Rescue pump at RCAF Station Trenton, Ontario during the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan in WW2.  It can be seen in the 1942 movie "Captains of the Clouds" starring James Cagney, which was filmed in Trenton & Ottawa, Ontario.  It is 1 of only 3 identical units made, and after it was modified in Trenton with a 750 gallon water tank - replacing the original 200 Gallon tank - it became one of a kind.  It returned to London after WWII and was later sold to Burleigh-Anstruther Township (now called North Kawartha Township) where it resided in Station #1, Northey's Bay for many years.  My father purchased it for $700, and drove it home, 260 Kilometers!!  It's last known to be located in Hamilton, Ontario, and well cared for.  I Hope so!!
