Another "ROAD TRIP" coming


May have another road trip coming before I head to West Virginia at the end of the mth. A friend has just bought a 66 Lemans rag top in Penns. USA. He could drive it home [aft. the paper work comes up & then to US customs] but we think it would be better to trailer it back, just in case!!! Now it depends on how fast the owner can get "title" up here,so he can send it to border for the 72 hr. wait!!!!!

what can I tell you Peteno not sure if they changed it from December or they don`t do  things   the same at every boarder. Now if they loose the title are they going to get another for you?

 Kevin, don't know what will happen if they lose it!!!! Murray's a little upset that I can't tow the car home but time is too tight for any "screw ups" at the border or trailer problems on the road!!! I wouldn't get back till late Tues. nite & have to leave for West Virginia on Wed morning. & after 14hrs. on the road,coming back with car, then another 12 to get to Charleston I'd be pretty well "done" when I got there for retirment "DOO"

 Just spoke to Murray, he found someone in our area that has a trailer & was "willing" to go. they are leaving at 5am Mon. morning to go get the Le Man's rag top!! Went from plan A with me to plan B with other person. Still better than driving a "unknown" car all that distance.

Port Huron /Sarnia Border accept faxed Title copies, for the last couple hundred cars and trucks we have brought over since 2006   including 2 this week... 

I would never send the Government my Title ...We always fax a copy and then take original in and have it crunched...(only on vehicles 15 years old and newer)  

Older vehicles don't need it in Port Huron/Sarnia (they just want the tax on the amount you paid)

That's what Murray thought but the Ganaoque US customs said it had to be ORIGINAL no faxes,no copies, just glad it worked out for him. When I go to get Lens T-bird thank goodness theres no border crossing!!!!!!!

Just spoke to Murray this morning, he had the Le Mans certified last week, needed nothing,all new exh. brakes, tires all done on it!!! So far has had an offer on it when it's not "even" for sale!!! He's dropped the price on his Monty to $8500 B. C car, full load load milage,bought from org. owner out there!! it's on KIJIJI & craigslist Haugen's cruise in starts tonight in Manchester Ont, hate the owner of the place [bad attitude] but may take the 2+2 over & see how many show up!!! Numbers have been falling off because of one of the owners, thought they might cancel it this yr. Time will tell????

Murray "might" have to put this up "fur sail" as he's having trouble driving it!! He's had 2 knee replacements & now his hip is giving out, says the clutch is realling bothering his knees & hip!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would go to a hydraulic clutch set up first and see if that helps. They are so much easy to use than the mechanical linkage.

 Yes, Murray is a nice guy, but he sure didn't think this one through b-4 he bought it & then going to Penn. to bring it up here. I wondered when he asked me if I could get it w/my car trailer,& he told me what he'd bought. I thought this "could be a problem" with his "knees" & he's no spring chicken either & a 4spd don't go together!!  Car is too nice to to make "any" modifications!!!!! & would "de-value" the car!!! He's likely looking for a replacement as we speak,[ & before this one is sold] I think he gets his "kicks" out of the "HUNT" for the car & the trip to get it!!!  I've made a few trips for him over the 28yrs I've known him, Iowa, Ohio, etc. & all of those trips my stomach has been "sore" from all his tales, keeps me laughing till it "HURTS"
