From Collins we headed west to Edson Alberta, to visit family and attend a Cars & Coffee event.

The first picture, I noticed a cool reflection in the hub cap and tried to take a picture of it, The reflection is my brothers house.











From Edson we headed west into the Rocky Mountains



Mount Robson, a really beautiful place to stop.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

After 700 plus km of crueling almost 100 F temperatures we arrived in Caribou country Clinton B.C. This is a tiny village where my wife grew up. We spent the weekend with her brother and his wife. Her brother is a real car guy and knew all the local builders and hoarders. I met some real interesting people tucked back in the bush with really cool cars.

The first two are at a 16 acre spot in the middle of nowhere, the owner ia real cool guy that bailed out of the big city to the quiet of the bush to build cars. He has a beautiful 66 GMC fleet side short box corvette front and rear suspension and a blown small bock but my pictures didn't turn out.





This next fellow is going to make you Ford lovers happy, I have never seen so many late 60's Mustang barn finds in one place. All except one run, a couple are pretty rare including a 68 GTA

















More from Clinton to come

one more from the Mustang hoard.



And then this was a gift from the Mustang Man, I guess I will Have to come up with a car built for it.



Next we went to what was called Clinton sawmills the actual place the wife's family lived, the sawmill is gone but there are some real nice acreages there in it's place. The fellow we went to visit went to school with my wife and loves trucks, both these examples are drivers that he has built on Dodge diesel 1 ton chassies.







This is his only car and what a beaut.






This is a start of another colection right in the village.

This collection owned buy someone with way to much money, I met the cool guy that is hired to build the vehicles and always have them ready for the owner to drive. There are two shops but I only had time to see the first one.
Most are survivors, the Broncos one is a 460 powered the other 429











The Camaro is a total custom build with all the best components





More to come tomorrow.

Really cool stuff, Glen!

The rad ornament that was a gift is incredible. When my dad got his 33 Dodge we looked up the prices of those early ram emblems... Quite a gift that he gave you! That's awesome!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Your car with the snow capped mountain in the background just blows me away. If there is a 2023 calendar, that should be the December pic.
