Gents, John was my Dad. My mom stumbled across this post somehow and sent it to me . Nice of you to catch his obituary and post some stories, agreed he did tell a great one.. Dad moved out from Montreal to Vancouver and got started in the boat repair business (which led into boat building)... by towing a boat across the country. The Alvis came with of course.. Thanks for sharing your stores, glad to know that he’s remembered Here is the fabled Alvis on its journey West Gents, This must have been quite a sight on the highway crossing the whole country! Cheers!
