Note to self: don't post anything on STMFC list when Bill is away at an RPM meet....


The 12" lettering was used starting in 1957. Because it was a late repaint, it could be found on cars through the 1960s.

(Thankfully Bill has his cell phone with him.)

Hi guys,

I don't know if Bill has mentioned this yet, but we've officially announced
our new Canuck gon. It was built from 1943 through the 1950s.

Full info is in our newsletter:

and the web page is here:

We're calling it the "Ultimate Canadian Gon" until we bring it out in a
bunch of fake US schemes, at which point it will likely be the "Ultimate Not
Remotely Accurate Gon" or something similar.

The newsletter also contains an update on the "where the heck is the" 1937
GARX Meat Reefer. Actually (shock and horror) the supposedly final sample is
en route to Bill right now.
