Our Car was featured in the National Film Board of Canada recruiting film for the Department of National Defence. The film was entitled - “Career Soldier” . It was shot in the summer of 1959 and released in 1960.
The location of the photo shoot with our car in it was a street just outside of the Wolsley Barracks in London, Ontario. The original film was in 16 mm format.
Lieutenant “Mike” Barr, at the time of the filming, was serving in the Second Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment, in London. Ontario, Canada. It is he who turns down the ride in our now famous ‘Hot-Rod’ scene.
This clip was extracted from a DVD copy of the original film which was given to us by Colonel (ret’d) Michael D. Barr, OMN, CD.
