handling, and Peter got his first dash plaque at a car show in 1995. Over the past fifteen years, he has driven his truck twice to PEI, several times to Winnipeg, also to British Columbia, Minnesota, and several times to his original home town of Leamington. The next time he rolls into town, he might be piloting his next project, a 1949 Hudson Su-
