Diary note for next week: Get a life

Not long ago, a guy just up the road came home with a new-to-him 2006 Hilux 4WD and what attracted me was its registration, DHC6, also the designation of the de Havilland Canada Twin Otter utility aircraft. Aviation is another great interest of mine and I'm particularly fond of the products of this famous Canadian manufacturer, now absorbed into Bomardier. So I did some research on the other registrations that match DHC designations. Serendipitously, half of them were 4WDs of some kind:
   Chipmunk DHC1 Mercedes ML270
                   Beaver DHC2 Grand Cherokee Limited
       Otter DHC3 Toyota Altezza
        Caribou DHC4 Daihatsu Charade
     Buffalo DHC5 Toyota RAV4 L
   Twin Otter DHC6 Toyota Hilux 3.0
Dash-7 DHC7 Toyota Will
     Dash-8 DHC8 Toyota Altezza
