Write-Off !!

Well it's official; the whack from behind by the cement truck resulted in "them" writing off our cute little Suzuki SX4. The unibody/frame is crumpled on the right-hand side. One or two less Guardian Angels, and I think it would've hurt too. Now we need new wheels...

Coleman Model 5A 3 burner classic

I picked this up on Kijiji. It's a vintage 1962 Coleman Stove. There's something about the hissing of a white gas stove that I like, and I've been looking for a good 3 burner model. It had a rotten gasket on the fuel cap, but even after all these years, Canadian Tire still sells the fuel caps etc.
Made in 1962, just like me :)
 It runs on white gas but with the addition of this gizmo, can be converted to propane.
 Add a hose, and a bulk tank can be used. This allows for propane at 61 cents a pound instead of 5 bucks
Of course I'm not content with just white gas or propane. I want the butane option too:
Notice the brass "propane to butane" adapter...
So there you have it. For a measly $35, an additional stove option. 3 burners that can consume naphtha, unleaded car gas, propane, or butane.
