What trip down memory lane, particularly the advertisements for the long ago taxi services that served our community so well. Coincidentally, I had coffee this morning with a former denizen of Carleton Place, Brian McDonald. In keeping with your car blog, he mentioned he would be taking his 1976 Corvette out of winter storage this weekend. Brian bought the Corvette from Vic Bennett Motors, ordering it in the fall of 1975 and still has the bill of sale!
