First of all there were no Mounties where we were. Too bad, we looked forward to meeting King the Wonder Dog. Second, don't be fooled when you hand over a $5 U.S. bill and get more than that in Canadian money. There will be a shock when you trade in your Canadian money for U.S. as you leave. By the way, are there any Canadian $1 paper bills? We didn't see any but we also understand the $1 coins are called "looney's" and the two dollar coins are called "tooney's." Don't take any $3 coins or else you're the "looney."
Here's a big one. A speed limit of 100 is not a license to fly in Canada. It's 100 kilometers per hours and converts to a bit over 60 mph. We can pretty much guarantee you will get lots of attention at 100 mph! That might be a way to meet the Mounties. The signs at the end of the drag strip are expressed in miles per hour, thank goodness, so at least there was some measurement we understood.
Of course we understood the great Chevys, Beaumonts, Acadians, and Pontiacs that came stock with Chevy engines in Canada. The weather isn't, and wasn't, conducive to year around cruising but the people here spend the winters making good use of their time; working on and polishing their fine cars.
Toronto Motorsports Park is home to some serious drag racers. Matter of fact, this is where Gary Irving, one of the top Nitro Coupe drivers and team owners, calls home. Bruce Boland, another fire-breathing Nitro Coupe pilot is also from this area. The bracket racers we saw thrashing their machines all weekend long were no less serious about winning than any Nitro Coupe team, or racers we see at any other track on the Super Chevy Show route. By the way, the new track tower features marble floors! Very civilized. We recommend it to all the tracks down south.
