3K, timing wasn't great for me to buy it now but
I just thought for that price I couldn't not make a move on this.

Look at it this way, you paid $2000.00 for the Car and $1000 for the carburetors, intake manifold, the header exhaust system, and the wheels, Sounds like a good deal to me... :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

After seeing mine, a friend here in nova scotia had called to inquire on buying this car, but I guess you had just bought it. Congrats. Looks like a great deal to me

I'm just back from inspection to register it and it failed :cry: but no big e now I know what needs to be fix...back brakes cylinder leak, reverse light, I matriculation plate light, coil spring had been clamped, brake sensor, electro sensor light, little bit of body repair in the back by the fuel tank....nothing major...plus I wasn't planing on driving it until next spring since I just got right shoulder surgery and can hardly shift...anyway will keep you guys updated on process.

Do you not have the ability to register it as an antique over there? here in n.s., once a car is 30 yrs old, you can register it as an antique which allows you to just get an initial safety check, and then avoid the normal inspection process there after. registration is only $18 /year instead of the normal $100 or so for a car. is
