Ford versus Ferrari

What’s in a name?  Everything.  But names — like looks — can be deceiving.  Oh yes, it helps to remember that the only constant in this world is change and one musn’t be afraid of it.  Carroll Shelby never was.

Introducing a film for the ages:  Ford vs. Ferrari.  The movie will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2019, and is scheduled to be released on November 15, 2019, in 2D, IMAX 2D and Dolby Cinema by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Please plan to join your fellow St LAC members in an evening of movie going and good times.  Details to follow.

The Union Autofest

St LAC was out in force at this year’s edition of the Union Autofest held at Innovation Park.  This year marked the 4th edition and turn out was as strong as ever.  Our presence didn’t go unnoticed and we had no shortage of visitors.  Craig Alder’s ‘Wide trackin” Pontiac Solstice.  If you’re not familiar with the Autofest, here’s all that you need know:

The Union” Autofest stems from the idea of a united Canadian car culture coming from all walks of life in the automotive world, without limitation to a certain make, model, or type of vehicle.  We expect cars, bikes, and trucks from all over the province and beyond to come together in one central location…Kingston, Ontario on September 7th 2019, for an awesome day full of seeing some of the provinces best project cars!

We had our tent and three cars.  Perhaps next year there’ll be more.

I’m for sale. Call Danby.


T-cRX Honda work and play party

Thanks to Danby, Rob and Roger for their dedication and hard work, our club car is progressing nicely.  Not wanting to have all the fun (Danby has put in more than 70 hours so far) we’re hoping members will join us for round III on Saturday, August 24th, 09h30 at the home (657 Simmons Road, Odessa) of Danby Crowder.  Lunch will be provided.

And join us they did.  Special thanks are extended to Dan Gray, Craig Alder and Eric de Pau for their help and inspiration.
