Hi Derek,

 

It varies provence by provence.  Prince Edward island all RHD cars are banned :shock:.  Quebec you can drive through in a RHD :ph34r: but are not permitted to own or register RHD if you live there :-(.  Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia I believe are all allowed to own and register.  I have seen more RHD cars in Canada than I ever saw LHD cars in the UK.

 

Insurance, now that is another story...

Nice looking garage Mick. Plenty of tinkering space. Shame someones parked their bike in there however!

 

Hi John,

 

Nice of you to say so sir.  Really looking forward to wrenching on the Eta's inside at last :wub:.  I have conducted all of my previous automotive work "al fresco" where I seemed to spend more time getting tools out and putting them away than actually using them.  I certainly couldn't put them down and walk off and leave them or they would have walked off too.

 

Need to build a bikeshed for the bikes :lol:

 

Happy days 8)

 

Regards,

 

Mick

I guess you will need to lose the UK plates and get the pair Canadian registered as well? Is there a period of time that you have to do this?

Currently researching the pros and cons between registering as a 30 year + vintage plate or a 15 years + collector car.

 

Nova Scotia plate on the back of the car only.  Will most likely leave the UK plate on the front much like every other Euro import :-)

Intentions are to build a significant 4 - 6 car garage / workshop next to the house with 4 post lift and storage above cunningly discussed to look like a barn :ph34r:

 

The E28zone.ca needs to reside somewhere :wink:

 

The Bronzitbeige Eta will be joining the RHD flotilla once the half life body refit and repaint is complete.

 

Intend to begin recruiting some LHD E23, E24 and E28 candidates for the LHD flotilla next year / once the barn is completed :D

 

Lots more space and options across on the left hand side of the pond.

 

Enjoy your weekend.

 

Regards,

 

Mick

There are a couple of BMW specialists in Halifax, my late Dad knew one of them. There's also a racing circuit not far away called AMP or something. Always something going on.
