Targa Newfoundland

Anyone else planning on coming? Dad and his codriver will be running again, in the Subaru Legacy # 801 in Targa Class 8, and it's always nice to meet someone new. Siu, why don't you come down and let your Trans Am play for a week?

The Wall Streel Journal says it's one of the "hot" new places to own property. Or maybe a second property. Can't remember. Is it really that nice up there?

Nope. But I'm allowed to say that, I live here

Well, yes it's a nice place for tourists. Nice place to ride, too.

Hamilton is like the Newfoundland of Ontario, so she is allowed to say that.

Hamilton is a crap hole bordering on the butthole of ontario. Nothing in Newfoundland matches hamilton in any way. Having worked, partied and lived there, I can't believe people go THERE willingly. (excluding hess village, I love that place, like an oasis in hell haha)

Personally, I would retire in the newfoundland. Stunning place with friendly people and besides I have been screetched in

I'd be calling you out on that, since Hamilton is my hometown and I've never lived anywhere else. One exception; I've found Welland to be the butthole of Ontario. Hamilton is more like the choade.

Back to the Targa topic, the tv special on Global is on every once in a while, it's been great entertainment the past couple of years, especially when they drive into the harbour in the Mazda RX-7 equipped with the car cam.

Having lived in both Hamilton and Welland, the buttholeness award definitely goes to Welland!!!


I love the Maritimes and as with most nice places to visit, they are great places to live, crappy places to work (if you can find any)

That was Craig Seiko in the Porsche 944. Ever since then we've been telling him to buy himself a boat
