    (I have actually seen the van in person a few times).
    Cool van! I wonder if that's hand-lettered paint or vinyl graphics.

    I've always liked the pickup trucks with a "tailgate" on the side.

    My aunt drove one of those for work at the phone co. as late as 1984ish. Supposedly that was their original design intent - Spools of phone wire in the back could be rolled right out on to the ground.

    I was cycling down Northfield Drive, late last Saturday morning. Among few too many motor vehicles which passed me was a red, I'm pretty sure, Triumph Spitfire, with its black top up (temperature had been 4C when I started, though it was approaching 15 at the time). I realized, "Hey! That might be my pub friends Ed and Katherine! (whom I haven't seen since the first lockdown)". So I waved vigorously, but as they sped away at at least 40km/hr difference, they wouldn't really have been able to acknowledge me anyway. They didn't, as I imagined might happen, stop and wait in Conestogo. It might not have been them anyway; I think their Spitfire has a softer tail.

    The one in the picture on their site does not look like a Corvair van. Looks like a 1960's Chevy Van.

    I was told today it is a 1967 Chevrolet Sportvan. By Lori (Andy was home sick).

    Annoyingly there is some déjà vu. I think I previously asked them if it was a Corvair, and between that time a few years ago and now I not only forgot the answer, but also forgot (and recently relearned) that there even was such a thing as a Corvair van.

    Was on a week and a half road trip to the east coast with my wife for her friend's wedding in Philadelphia and then a couple of days doing vacation stuff in Newport, RI. Notable sitings included 4 McLarens of various types on the jersey turnpike, a handful of modern Lambos and Ferraris, and honestly too many maseratis. The highlight however was a green Miura in downtown Newport. I almost shit my pants.

    Saw the new SL in the parking lot at the station I was working at. It was a beautiful blue. I thought to myself, "I didn't realize they updated the GT" only to learn soon after it was an SL, not a GTC.

    It's a really good looking car.

    Toyota Tercel with poorly spaced vortex generators.

    Also, another example of someone having way too much money in this city.
