Special Interest

Here are some photos of Bill’s 1965 American Motors-Rambler Marlin.

Bill is a member of the Haliburton Time Travellers Car Club,
which puts on cruise nights during the summer months in Minden and Haliburton, as well as a Canada Day Car Show each year in Minden.

In 2015 Bill attended the Cleveland, Ohio AMO auto show and won a Top 20 Trophy for his Marlin
as well as a Junior Bronze Award in the National Concours AMO.  His car is nicknamed Molly the Marlin.

One of Bill’s interests in old cars. Here is a photo of his 1965 Rambler Marlin, built by American Motors to go up against the Ford Mustang and Plymouth Barracuda.

Powered by an American Motors built 327 cubic inch V8 with 4bbl, its in mint condition.

Bill belongs to the Haliburton Time Travellers Car Club that has regular meets in Minden and Haliburton and visits seniors through the summer at Hyland Crest and Highland Wood Homes.

If you see Bill cruising in the summer, make sure to say Hi!

Here are some photos of Bill’s trip to Plummer’s Lodge on Great Bear Lake, north of the Arctic Circle with his sons Billy Jr. and Nicholas.

Note the ice on the lake on July 2nd. Billy is holding the largest lake trout, weighing in at 48.5 pounds.

What an awesome trip! Great Bear Lake is the fourth largest freshwater lake in North America. From Minden, we drove to Toronto and boarded a flight to Winnipeg. The next morning we flew to Yellowknife and then north to Plummer’s Lodge on Great Bear Lake. In July we experienced 24 hours of daylight.

“Terrible” Ted Lindsay taken at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. Ted Lindsay was part of the famed “Production Line” in Detroit with Gordon Howe and Sid Abel. In 1949-1950 Lindsay, Abel and Howe finished first, second and third in NHL scoring. Ted Lindsay started his minor hockey career in Bill’s home town of Kirkland Lake.  I am wearing a Lindsay sweater-Number 7.

Here is Mr. Hockey-Gordon Howe with Bill Kulas and local Toronto Maple Leaf fan in the centre, Mr. David Shapiera.

Wow!  What a thrill for me to stand alongside Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe (my hockey hero since the age of five growing up in Rouyn, Quebec and then later on in Kirkland Lake) in front of the Remax office in Minden a few years ago. Please Note:  The elbows were kept down!  Thanks to my good friend Vince Duchene for making this one on one Dream-meeting happen!
