    Been away for quite a while, but after my brother found this under the old linoleum floor in my parent's house I started lurking around some and thought I would share. Its from the May 29th, 1946 Halifax Chronicle in Nova Scotia:

    Thanks for the welcomes back...no, wasn't dead, they had blocked ECJ5 at work for a long while and just got it back so I got out of the habit of checking in daily.

    My brother is going to get it properly mounted and put it up in the office of the new shop they are building.

    " a 5500 pound trailer payload at highway speeds..."

    Now I've done some things with jeeps, but that is scary.
