Guys, yesterday we had a sunny day at 0°C (32F) so we did a little trip into a former ammo storage installation.

What an adventure! :D

Great weather, nice variety of cool cars, your buddies, and that good looking food! 8) Looks like fun times, Housil.


That 1992 EPA looked great - and awesome scenery photos as always too. :)

Some good quality time for sure. Great pictures, thanks for sharing.

The 1992 EPA looked like it just came out of the factory.

Great review housil! I assume the ammo bunkers were cold war era? Amazing that the 1992 EPa was still edible, they sure are made to last!

Awesome stuff!
There's an old abandoned US Naval base an hours drive from me, I should do a review there sometime.
(It is odd to have a US Base in Canada, but Newfoundland/Britain gave the land for the base to the US in WW2)
