    These AWESOME vintage Canadian-made Police Boots are offered! These must have been in the back of a closet for the past four decades or more. They feature a full leather lining, genuine Goodyear welt construction, double Viscolized leather soles, and a nailed Biltrite rubber heel. They literally don't make them like this anymore! My best guess is that they were made by Boulet or H.H. Brown. They are unworn, but have a couple of very minor flaws that a good polishing will quickly remedy. You'll have a break-in period with these high-quality leather boots, but once they mould to your feet they will become your favourite footwear! They'll look great in the office or with jeans downtown...

    Wanted, Part time / Casual truck driving work. (Transport Truck) I am a Journeyman Automotive Mechanic but I also have a Class One driver’s license with 9 and 9A endorsements. I graduated from Canadian Training Institute in Bay Roberts in 2013 and earned a Diploma in Commercial Transport. I am a drug free, “By the book” driver with a completely clean drivers abstract and just had my medical completed this year for DMV. I have great respect for people’s equipment. My mechanical background and past driving experience has given me great respect for these trucks. I have experience hauling Sea Cans (Expandable Chassis), dry vans, High beds and shingle racks. I have experience with Eaton 10 Speed, Super 10, 13 and 18 speed transmissions. I also have experience with the Mack “M Drive” automatic transmission. I do have experience in winter driving in Newfoundland. A Full time truck driving job did not work out for me because of the amount of time I was away from home, but I truly did love driving the trucks. I put my family first and I currently have a full time Monday to Friday Mechanics job which I am happy with and don’t intend to change, but I find myself missing driving. So, what I am looking for is to meet a company, an owner operator, etc; Someone that may have a load here and there on a weekend that they need covered. Someone who I can call when I have free time to see if they have anything they need delivered. I’m not looking for a full time job. This all being said, I would certainly prefer “Pin to Pin” loads (transfers, etc.). I enjoy highway driving, but given the time frame I have to work with (weekends) it would have to be on the Island of Newfoundland. I also would prefer to operate a truck with a Manual shift gear box to help keep my shifting skills sharp. I appreciate you taking the time to view my Ad. Please send me an e-mail and I can forward my resume, diploma and any other required information to you. Thank You

    The happiest car in the world; Jodi Lai by JODI LAI, NATIONAL POST | APRIL 4, 2013 184258...I have never encountered a vehicle that people who normally don’t care about cars get this excited about. As soon as the word got out that I was testing a red Fiat 500, my Facebook and text message inbox was inundated with requests for a ride in the little runabout. When I told people I was driving a Fiat, the reaction was mostly a variation of, “Awhhh! Those are sooo cute!” Did they care that it has an awesome little 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder? Nope. How about the sport-tuned suspension? Nah. That the excellent sound system in my tester was designed by the folks at Beats by Dre? Barely. All they knew is that they wanted to sit in it. And after driving it, I completely understand why. It is nearly impossible to be in a bad mood while driving the Fiat 500. It’s the happiest car in the world, and it really rubs off. If the Fiat could talk, it would say, “Ciao, bella! Look at me! Wheeeee! I’m driving! I’m so happy to be alive!”The people at Fiat have done a magnificent job in making sure people know about the car’s happy disposition. With its clever marketing campaigns, it has diverted attention from the car’s flaws and made it an object of desire, capable of stirring emotion in the most far-removed of gear heads. And the Fiat has many flaws, but because of the sheer joy it brings, it is very easy to forgive them. While the main complaint with the first Fiat on Canadian shores was that it was underpowered, the sweet turbocharged engine goes above and beyond fixing that gripe. Although 135 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque don’t seem like numbers to brag about, the turbocharged engine is more than capable of moving the light 500 (it’s essentially a tuned-down version of the motor in the mighty Abarth). At idle, the little four-cylinder purrs away quietly, but once the throttle is buried, a surprisingly menacing exhaust note fills your ears. The five-speed manual’s long bite and throws, along with its unique clutch and shifter position took a bit of getting used to, but turned out to be a fine performer, well-matched to the sporty 500T. Things are amped up a notch when you push the Sport button, which quickens throttle response and seems to deepen the exhaust note. Although the exterior has been essentially the same since 2007, Fiat had to give this turbocharged model some attitude to match the exhaust note and sportier feel, and did so with some mean-looking 16-inch aluminum rims, chrome exhaust tips, red brake calipers, flared side sills and a rear spoiler. But staying true to the Fiat’s happy personality, the cabin brings the 500 back to its cheery self. The cabin is simple and is characteristic of other cars in its segment, with the exception of a body-coloured dash panel and retro touches such as round, chrome-trimmed buttons. The retro touches elevate the cabin and only add to the car’s never-ending desire to make you smile. Because of the Fiat’s small frame and barely-there rear windows, blind spots were an issue. Fiat has addressed this problem by putting a blind spot mirror inside the driver’s side mirror — an extremely helpful addition. The other problems with the Fiat are issues that plague the entire subcompact segment and are to be expected. These are tiny, front-wheel-drive, small-wheelbase cars, which means twitchy highway driving and considerable understeer when pushed into corners. With the 500 being so light, road bumps and Toronto’s infamous potholes also became my worst enemies. Rear-seat room is also laughable. I’m 5-foot-7 and didn’t have the driver seat all the way back on its tracks, and I could barely fit my lunch bag in the wedge of space that was left. Most buyers wouldn’t buy this car as a four-seater, however. For two people, it is completely comfortable. For three, it is OK for short trips. For four? Nearly impossible unless your friends are hobbits. The back seats make better storage for groceries or bigger items; the trunk is a wee one, as evidenced by the world’s smallest snowbrush provided by Chrysler Canada. About the size of a dustpan sweeper, it’s the cutest snowbrush I’ve ever seen, but it’s a very simple indicator of how small the trunk is — a larger snowbrush probably won’t fit. Of course, being so small, the 500 is perfectly suited to be an urban runabout. Its fuel economy is respectable, it has peppy performance, it’s ridiculously easy to park and it stands out in a crowd. The Fiat 500 is a charming car that makes me want to take the long way home. It makes me want to do silly things like match my nail polish colour to the Rosso red exterior, sing out loud like Wayne and Garth, and drive all my friends around because nothing would make them, or myself, happier.
