Something Really Spells Funny on Highway 7



It was a normal day for Motorhouse Mitsubishi owner Schuyleur Seccaspina– He had his power breakfast- complete with sprinkles and he became charged!


                                    (Not Schuyleur- Just our regular Carleton Place folk on Bridge Street)


Then he challenged others with his regular superheroe workout.


It was a good day, and as he said on Facebook: “They’re spinning the good stuff this morning!!”#britney #1980 #orsomething


Suddenly across the street at Carleton Place Ford he saw something that disturbed him.

“What is Sael? Can I do a Sael?”


He quickly sent one of his Motorhouse best to find out what was going on.

“We have an update on the ‘SAEL’ conundrum across the street. My friend and fellow coworker Matt Trueman is now on scene. Everything is GOOD.”


“It wasn’t us!” said the folks at Carleton Ford. “It must have been some of those highway illiterate chip-stand gypsies that changed the letters!” The Ford team quickly drove off in embarrassment while the Motorhouse Mitsubishi team looked on. In the end one of the staff confessed, and blamed it on autocorrect!

Rumours flooded the Ottawa Valley that Motorhouse Mitsubishi was closing? Were they bad spellers too?


With that Motorhouse Mitsubishi replied: “We’d like to thank everyone who came out to our super sale!!! Judging by our lot, we’ll do the same sale in the near future!”

“To all the people congratulating Motorhouse on their exit from the car business they say: WE ARE STILL OPEN!!! WE NEEDED TO MOVE CARS IN ORDER TO PAINT THE BUILDING….THE COLOUR IS….DRUMROLL…… EXCITING MITSUBISHI WHITE!!!!”



Last seen in the new Motorhouse Mitsubishi Batman theme car Anthony (Business Manager)  and Rob Cassell (Parts Manager) (who look like Sully and Mike from Monsters Inc.) were busy plotting for another episode of Highway 7 Dealership Prank Wars. No idea if the Carleton Place KIA guys are getting involved.

I would be careful because as Ted Hurdis said: “Payback is a bitch!”


Is this childish unprofessional behaviour? Of course not– it’s the exact opposite!

All I can say is– it’s so nice to see businesses getting along. Good on both of you Carleton Ford and Motorhouse Mitsubishi. The adage that two brains are better than one may explain why a lot of entrepreneurs and small business create good friendship partnerships. Come on Carleton Place KIA– everyone is waiting for your input! Head on down to Highway 7 for all your automotive needs! Why? Because if dealerships can get along on a personal basis– then that says a lot about who they really are when they sell you a car!

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
