That's a great collection! I remember many of them from childhood trips in the 1950s, and in others I see signs with familiar shapes and designs, but Canadian names...also quite a few that remind us of commercial history...Richfield Oil before Atlantic Richfield before ARCO, for instance. I'm beginning to think my day in Calgary at a teacher conference a few years ago was spent in the wrong part of town!

I think there are lots of us who can't tell you the plot of any James Bond movie, but remember exactly what 007's car did! Reminds me...we had an earlier discussion of movie cars on TravelGumbo. Worth re-reading, too...

Thanks for reviving this wonderful presentation Ottoman. My wife could leave me here while she went shopping - or maybe she went away for a week ! And I still wouldn't be ready to leave when she got back. All your dream cars under 1 roof. Heaven in metal.
