    I have no production info on Canadian-built vans, but the US production numbers I have show that some were exported to Canada. I'm interested to learn where they were built, in Canada.

    Whenever I've moved them, Mac told me to lie it facedown on a blanket and to bunch a blanket under each curved end; since I didn't have a windshield rack.

    Years ago, scooterwash scanned all 134 pages of the 1964 supplement to share with the club. I dropped the ball on getting it collated and in one PDF binder for people to download, for far too long.
