eldest daughter. Went down with the van to see if I could fix it.
Couldn't, so pinched off the line and drove it home to Waterloo on the
401. Left the van for the daughter, Before I could get the line fixed,
that night I get a phone call. The darn van quit (blew the engine) 3/4
of the way to Toronto - so back on th 401 with only front brakes to go
rescue her at about 11 pm. - and back home.
Total distance about 135 miles on the busyest highway in Canada.
Good thing it wasn't on Lakeshore Blvd sometime around July 17th! :)
Quite familiar with the 401...hit the highest speed I *EVER* went in a car
on that road. Had a Honda Prelude and a Volvo Bertone BLAST past me, so I
took my 1985 Corolla GTS w/10,000 miles on it for a run. When I hit 128
MPH the Honda and the Bertone were STILL pulling away from me, so I
figured I better back it down. 75 (120) sure felt SLOW!
