"...Bakersfield, Vermont. Enosburg Falls. Tonight I’m crossing the border at Morses Line and will have nothing to declare. Frelighsburg, Québec. Bedford. Pike River. On a northeast heading, the last Appalachian hills will smooth out into the forensic flatness of the St Lawrence Valley. Dairy country, steel silos, ranks of corn and tractors the size of buildings. Peculiar intrusion of the ex-volcano hills on the flatscape, one of them Mont-Royal but I won’t see that rise until I’m in ferocious traffic riding over the hump of the bridge..."

It was the first production car in the U.S. to offer that particular series-hybrid powertrain. This was just as Tesla’s Model S came out, so it was a big deal. Justin Bieber owned one. They were supposed to be the conscientious cars for celebrities and stars..."

Colin Washburn saw the paintings at the Ironstone Winery Car Show in Murphys, CA. That's a 1941 Chevrolet Suburban, je pense.

from Stephen Hendrickson: "Here's another chase over a bridge. A beautiful turquoise green shiny finish. Old guy driving of course. Morning on the RFK bridge, aka the TriBoro.In the rear view mirror, the best I could get."

Mont-Tremblant and the cabin with the Canadian cousins. The pays d'en haut. Always worth the drive.
