-50C. Yep. That was street parked, with no plugging in. It's just about 13 years old and started in -38C last week, but not without complaint. But I am sad to say her days are numbered. I have never been this upset about parting with a "thing". Maybe it's because she has a name, "Plucky". Drove...
Well.. funny I should spot this topic. I bought a brand new 2000 Golf TDI in April 2000. My partner and I drove it to the first ever TDI fest and won a peoples choice award for how clean the car was.... an award we won again in 2008! Plucky is now nearly 13 years old, and has 459,500km on her. I...

It's just outside of Ottawa at Calabogie Motorsports Park. That's the big one, for the year, but there's plenty of more accessible ones...

PS: The Washington DC IRLP node is 4000, and the repeater website is http://www.neradc.org/
If you wanna talk to me, I am usually on VE3RIX repeater (http://www.ve3rix.ca/repeater.php) Our IRLP node number is 2596, and our Echolink node number is 148649.

I can vouch for that, having driven one here in Canada for many many years. It's what got me into diesels. It was an 85 2.2TD, and it was finally sold, but not retired just 4 years ago. I have no idea how many KM was on it. We used to call it "The Prototype" because it was so rare.
