Myrtle is officially a registered Canadian!




After an expensive overhaul of key safety and mechanical items Myrtle has passed her "out of province" inspection and is registered with her brand new plates. She required new 7 new tires (Yokohama Y785R), steering linkage, shocks, speedometer repair, new brakes, new drive shaft, new bearings & bushings, and assorted flushes. We had the repairs done at the wonderful Dale Adams Automotives They source all the hard to find parts and tires too.

Camping summer 2010! Well... there is still the small issue of installing her new windshield and assorted other repairs like engine tune up and some interior work.
