Hi Mike and fellow Listers:

I haven't paid too much attention to the thread on Mobil posters with MGAs
on them because we don't have Mobil in Canada - or at least Western Canada.
Imagine my surprise on entering a Canada Trust office to pay a bill.
(Canada Trust is a trust company which operates as a bank in Canada and has
a lot of street front locations)  As I was waiting in the line I suddenly
spotted a very perky looking red '73 MGB roadster featured on a poster
advertising CT's new line of credit.  The picture shows a young couple
standing at the back of the car trying to figure out how to load in a large
antique table.  A single word "Antiques" is featured by the table.  I
immediately put the arm on the young teller with the result that I walked
out of the bank with the poster.

It is a small format poster - 9 X 12 inches - but larger ones may also
exist.  To all of you Canadian listers and Americans living near the border
- go for it.
