My 1940 Canadian Dodge
I am very fortunate to own my Dad's 1940 Canadian Dodge, which is also from Western Canada. Most of the car is original. My Dad restored the engine and it runs like a top...it has the original upholstery and dash paint...and headliner. Someday when I have the spare cash, I'll have the seats recovered. But I pretty much want to leave it original. I love the Dodge Ram hood ornament, when I was a kid I called it the "Billy Goat". My Dad owned a car just like this when he immigrated from Canada to the U.S. in the mid 1950's. He would drive us kids around in a car like this. I love the style...The two tone paint reminds me of an oxford shoe...it has alot of character.
Otherwise known as "Vintage Trailer Gal" or "Chief Trailerette", I have a passion for anything vintage, and love restoring, decorating and camping in old travel trailers. I started the "Trailerettes" women's vintage trailer camping group in Northern California. Here's their website for more information: www.trailerettes.net
