    Did you buy the car in Canada or was it already taken south? Like I said in your other thread, I've never seen one up here myself!

    Those KM can be confusing. Nice of you to offer to save Sandragoon from the impending chaos

    Shawn, you have done an amazing job on your restoration! I wished I could see it in person!
