-I remember the gyrocopter flying around town. My old scout leader, John Schwingschandle, who had a body shop in the industrial area, helped to work on this.
-John was a long time friend of our family. I remember him working on this at his shop where my dad worked.
-I remember going to his shop for scout meetings of some kind...Riteway autobody? I think it’s still there...
- I had forgotten the name of his body shop until you mentioned it. He took us to his shop a few times for occasional scout expeditions. One time we built an igloo out of snow blocks behind the shop. I worked for John for a few weeks in the summer of 1973 when he oversaw Masson’s body shop. I’ll always appreciate his mentorship.
- Use to see this fly over our farm on the 7th line
-Is that the service station at Guelph and Mountainview that burned down years ago.
-Yes I think you are right , it was called LINCOLN Als back in the day owned by the ZERLOF ( NOT SURE OF SPELLING )Family ...then it was Baz Motors , then Georgetown Volkswagen dealer ...was a gas bar as well at one time ...
-yes it is lived there when it burned down
-....certainly looks like it.....the one that housed Baz Motors at one time...... Volkswagen dealer.
-I used to fill up my 61 Chev there for 45 cents a gallon.
-Lincoln Motors owned and operated by Mr. Al Zaravlav! Sadly suffered a major fire and he closed down his business!
-I'd like one now,
back then they had flying cars and floating cars,
who needed the future we had it already, 😁
- Baz motors?
