Maryland to Montreal: 300TD Great Ride

I'm not superstitious but I am a little nervous about speaking too highly of my 85 wagon. My brother and I took it from Maryland to Montreal and it drove really really well 75-80 mph the whole way. I just put new accumulators in the week before in addition to a valve adjustment and a new timing chain. I love this car. We lived out of it for a week, camping. I definitely is suited to long highway trips. I was happy to find out that it only lost about a centimeter of oil on the dip-stick. The only down side was that my sister was driving her Jetta TDI that gets 600 miles to the tank. I want a MB CDI.

We had a great time in Montreal. We spent most of our time camping at Parc d'Oka. It was my second time there and I hope to come back soon to see more. I will have to visit when the Jazz Festival is in full swing and maybe for next year's Women's World Cup Championship cycling race. Great city.

The only place I purchased diesel was just outside Parc d'Oka near the Monestary.

Formula 1 GP...that sounds really awesome. Bring some ear plugs. Do diesels running in F1? Ha.
