Salutations: Zweef - first of all this was almost 15 years ago and I've not been in an accident since despite occasionally being a bit over the limit - (although 25k was a bit fast I agree).. You'd have to drive in Canada to understand - the highway between Montreal and Toronto is a bit over 600 kilometers long. There are no towns, and nothing but pine trees and crop fields to watch go by. The only break are a series of 5 or six government sanctioned rest stops (both sides) with fueling stations and food.. It's like driving the New Hampshire leg of I95 but for 6 hours straight and, if you time it right, it is possible to drive down this road for the entire six hours and never come upon, or be passed, by another car.. It changes somewhat when you get past Toronto and into the corridor to Detroit - but the Montreal leg is a killer.. Also - you didn't read carefully a southern Ontario Rain Burst which means as I said, slightly overcast - then sudden wall of water - no spattering of rain to warn you - then into ruts, the median, the ditch and the tow truck.. Anyway - I've solved my 9000 CD turbo sputter for $150 Canadian - so there is little anyone can say that will bum me out today.. Details upcoming..
