PTDC0004.JPGI'm selling my 77 Pontiac Ventura .The car is in nice shape and runs and drives almost every day.It is the full hatchback style and everything works except the radio.This car would make the perfict first rod for young or old rodders.It is all origional except for the colour and graphics.It comes with a stock good running 305v8auto.Interoir is white and in really good shape .The whole car is nice fou a basicly unrestored car.It does need brake work,I think a master or power booster as the brakes get spungey on long stops. Throw some custom wheels and some dressup chrome at it and you have a cheap cruisser. We have to start someware so I am asking $4600. or best offer.I also have a 70s style BSA chopper,extended springer and fishtail stacks and a early 70s 16ft boat with big fins and 2 vintage non running motors for it.Pictures to follow on the bike and the boat.Prices will be $3500 for the chopper and $800 for the boat and motors. As usual I will accept reasonable offers on all of them. Please call 905 885 7109 mornings between 10 and 1 for more informationThanks for your time.  Ed

I have been told that the boat is a Leavens Victor built in Toronto between 59 and 60. They also said the motors are 57 or 58 Johnson Sea Horses. I am not a boat guy so I have to take there word for it. Ed

Maybe not a relevant question, but why are boats right hand drive?
That beast certainly has the late '50's look with the rear wings.

It has something to do with the direction the propeller rotates. It tend to make the boat twist counter clockwise, so they designed boats with the pilot on the right to try and keep that side down.

Google is your friend

 useless but interesting maritime trivia file: have you ever wondered why most boats have their steering consoles on the right side? In the US our cars all have the steering wheels on the left (except for postal workers), so what gives?

You might be thinking that it has to do with most people being right-handed, or with using the driver’s weight to counteract prop torque. Both are true. Partially.

For the most part, all boat traffic keeps to the right, according to the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea. Before the use of the modern day rudder, boats were steered by a specialized oar, which was situated on the right-hand side, or starboard side of the vessel (originally steerboard). This oar was held by a sailor located towards the stern. As there were many more right-handed sailors than left-handed sailors, this meant that the right-handed sailors holding the steering oar (which had been broadened to provide better control) stood on the right side. The helmsman, standing in the middle of the boat and looking ahead, used his right hand to operate it. Traditionally, boats would also moor with the left hand side to the quay to prevent damage to the steering oar, and this was referred to as larboard (loading side), later replaced by port to prevent confusion from the similar sounding words. By keeping to the right, boats pass "port-to-port", protecting the steering oar. When modern style rudders fixed to the stern were developed, the helmsman was moved amidships (on the centreline), and when steering wheels replaced tillers this generally remained the same. Many motor yachts and other small craft are right hand drive, but some boats, typically smaller pleasure craft and wooden speedboats are built left hand drive to give a better view of approaching and passing traffic
