13th Community Annual Soapbox Derby


Growing up in Toronto we had no worries, but in recent years there has been some gang activity. Especially this summer it seemed like anyway.

I have no stats for 2012, but in 2011 there were 45 murders in Toronto.

The closest town to me now has 30,000 people including surrounding farms. There was a shooting there about 15 years ago. A botched bank hold up.

When you grow up and live around daily shootings and murders and crime you kind of become numb to it all, it's always sad but it's not unexpected by any means down here which in itself is the saddest part of all.

I'm getting my concealed handgun license in a few months. I hate guns (mainly because they end up in the wrong hands) but I'll protect what's mine with one, or two, or three.

and that video is priceless!!

It's on now! And in case you think of jumping ship, Little Missy (creeper), here's against a Chevy. Notice the Chevy has 6 wheels on the ground versus the Fords four.



Dodge, pfff. Crap.

You had to go all the way to Russia to find that video...

You boys can pretend that your dumb old Fords are better, if you need to fufill some sort of male inadequate complex, but at least we can all agree that the BIG HORN DODGE RAM is far far better looking

Well now we are getting personal, looks are in the eyes of the beholder, power and performance are what trucks are meant to be, not some pretty ornament you park in the drive way.....

Ok like I said eyes of the beholder........powerful is a matter of data, HP, torque, and towing capacity and this is where the Dodge falls short.
