I always thought that this would be one of the buildings that would always be standing. We stayed in it twice for the Vancouver indycar race back in 98 and 99.

Truly a shame that it is coming down for some more crapbox apartments. The West End's famous landmarks are disappearing. West End has lost its character.


That’s a really cool picture.
I'll say, for a camera on a not so great phone. It took my friend a few trys to get a decent shot with less blur.

Wow, some incredible shots Jim. The heat and humidity have been absolutely brutal.

It is storming in Haliburton right now, no lightning that I have seen but lots of thunder.

This is a beam from one of the WTC towers on display at the Military Museum off Crowchild Trail.

A couple of things.

Blue cars both looking very stunning.:thumbs:

The beam is a sad reminder of a day that change the world. Thanks for posting that Mikey, just hard to look at and fathom what happened to the entire building that day. So many lives lost.:Angelsad2:

Wow, did not know this was there. Haven't been in a long time, maybe due for another visit.

Well worth a visit for a few hours. I’ve been many times. Always find something new there.

What a graphic representation of how amazing and ugly mankind can be. So duplicitous to see a twisted remanent of this marvel in engineering and hub for world wide commerce that was torn apart by sheer hatred in such a malevolent and violent manner; taking all those lives.
Very sobering to see this single piece of steel that held on as long as it could Mike.

Why yes you can Murray... But remember, you can't drive that one at night... At least that new 720S that Hiroki posted is street legal... And at $ 285k US more or less, probably a bit more affordable for the average guy ...Now you on the other hand should definately hold out for at least the P1... A bargain at $ 2.6 mil

$2.6mil...geezus!! and to think that the new ZR-1 will give this thing one hell of a run at fractions of the cost and with a few small mods, even beat it :Biggrin: :thumbs:
