Well as couple of you know im in Canada for the next 3 months.
Been looking out for cars, havent spotted too much yet, mostly just SUVs and new cars, few nice new Mustangs.
Saw a standard Chevelle SS today, yellow, black race stripes, unrestored and a nice 67 Fast Back, will try get some pics as i come across stuff.
Had a look at the classifieds and everything is pretty expensive here, looks like the classic are in everywhere!
Talk to yas soon.

Are canadian prices similar to US prices on old cars? find a car lot and ask to see their trade-ins ;) might find a bargain to cruise around in for the few months you are there....

Had a look in the classifieds here and around a few yards and theres not much for sale.
Prices are still pretty pricy here for anything under and around 70s.
Mustang Coupes 8-12K for unresto
Novas 8K- 15K nice examples 25K for a nice one
Chargers 10K-25K
No Camaros yet???

Overall looks pretty much the same prices as AUS

Yeah its awesome here at the moment, have been snow boarding alot, 30 mins from my unit to the fields. They are into their meats here and beers/spirits you would like, have been thinking of you.

Still havent spotted that many cars, saw a nice 68 Camaro the other day, suppose its not rely the season for these cars as the city is covered in snow.
Going to the ski fields you go through the suburbs abit and have noticed a few cars in yards, but there covered in snow now so cant rely pick them.

Did see this 350 Nova the other day, was pretty rough original condition.

I would love it, sounds awesome.... just like back in the 60's when they used to race for pinks although on a much more expensive scale.

yeah seen an episode or 2 before.. makes me cringe.. i don't understand how people can do that, as Kurt said it's gambling, i guess i'm not a big gambler :p

I wonder if it's illegal (pink slip racing) here in Aus? might be something to start up with a few sh*t box's :p
