Yes, agreed very nice car. Welcome from the Okanagan valley. I made that same trip through the northern States about 3 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it, even visited the Presidents.

Welcome, and nice car!. I made a very similar trip in 2004 from Niagara Falls with a 95 Caprice wagon through the states with no plates. I'd love to do it again!

Wow, first that is a beautiful car and so unique.  First one I restored was a 69 Nova SS.  Honestly there is something about the size of that 3rd gen Nova.  It just fits me so well.  I didn't really realize that until I bought my 66 Biscayne.  There was something so different about the full size car.  I came to realize that I had so many Novas that everytime I got into a different one it felt the same.  It was like an old glove, just felt so good.

In 2001, I bought a 1962 Canadian Nova Convertible in Kamloops, BC and drove it to Reno, NV.  It was August and I was there for Hot August Nights.  After a week there I drove the car home to Michigan.  One of the best trips of my life.  Couple years later, I picked up two cars with my dually and trailer, one in Oregon and one from Vancouver Island.  It was first of Dec. and I drove east on I-90 thru northern Idaho in a blizzard.  I love that road but with the 3 unit UPS & FedEx trucks being my only partners on the Interstate, they threw up snow that blinded me everytime they passed and I prayed my way into Montana and had a tire failure just west of Missoula.  That is where I found an old salvage yard with 7500 cars and I bought a couple wheels and tires off a one ton Ford P/U for the trailer.  I returned to that yard about 2 1/2 years later to pick parts but they had crushed 4500 of the cars.

Enjoy that Acadian, they are special in my option.
