    I came across a memorial webpage honouring 24 year old RCAF pilot Harold Gordon Dayman, born on Dec 23 1918, from the small Alberta town named Carmengay. Harold was killed when his bomber crashed on Oct. 12, 1943 after taking off in England. Prior to the start of the war Harlold had built this home built special called the Bug. The Bug was painted a bright yellow with red trim and wheels, and looked very cartoon like and had a real Popular Science magazine circa 1938 vibe. Harold was obviously a very cool guy, as these four photos will show.

    Wow...built the car in his teens and went on to get killed on his birthday.
    They were a rare breed back then. The amount of stuff they seemed to get done so early in their lives is very humbling.
