Welcome!  I remember your car showing up on this forum when it was for sale.  The '68 GP is one of my favourite Canadian Pontiacs so I will look forward to seeing your progress.

Best of luck and I hope this forum will be enjoyable and helpful for you, as it has been for many others.

I'm really glad our french speakng members are replying. Dom was a bit hesitant to apply to the site as he felt his English wasn't very good. All I can say is his English is better than my French!

I post on Facebook, Old photo's of the Gaspe' from time to time as we love and spend time there.

Have just about zero French, so in the beginning I would write onto Google Translate and relay the translation in French onto the Facebook page. At first people that knew me were saying "Goodness your French is really good Mark! I had no Idea". We got a laugh out of it. Eventually just started posting in English and I'm accepted no problem. Google translate is a great tool if you need it, but be aware, it can really make a mess of dialect.

If Dom chooses to post in French it's zero issue from me, I'll just copy it to GT and I'll be fine...

Myself and others are perfectly bilingual donc il n'y a aucun probleme!

Watch out with Google translate: for Drive-through I've once seen CONDUIT A TRAVERS which means drive right through as if through a wall! And French to English LIBRE SERVICE in French which means Self Serve I've once seen translation to "Free Service." We can get a chuckle.

 

Pas de problème Dominique on va se comprendre!!

 Exactly.

Dom, do not worry about your English. We will easily figure it out. 

You already seem to have a ton of French company on here anyway!
