Which ducks did you have in mind?

I did a big Canada trip a few years ago; rented a truck and brought
back a bunch of big disk drives mostly - mostly DEC, RP02, RP04, RP05

Passed through customs in about 10 mins flat.

"What's in the back?"

"Bunch of ancient computer stuff for my collection. Some guys it's old
cars, me it's old computers..."

Couple more questions, check my paperwork, no problems.
