Leo and Jean spent many wonderful and fun filled years travelling in Leo’s 1967 Camaro convertible, completely restored by Leo, with the Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada – Chemical Valley Region. They also spent many hours touring Lambton County and beyond at flea markets and garage sales for treasures as well as Petrolia and Brigden post cards for both themselves and for the Petrolia Heritage Committee.
