|Tonights Cruise was out to Westsyde Auto Service as Bill Lindsey said he would explain what was involved in bringing a car into the province of BC.|
|Well the night started off with us checking out Al Paulsen's latest barn find of a 1948 Chevrolet|
|The restored and the wanatabee restored|
leaving Riverside Park after supper the girls were dropped of at
Marg Hoshowski's on the way out to Westsyde for coffee|
as they were not intested in the spiel on importing cars to BC
|The shop is operated with Bill and his son Mike.|
went into great detail what the province is looking for when you bring
a car in to BC to make certain that it is road worthy.|
It may sound tough on those importing a car but it is in the safety of all those that use the roads.
Bill handed out a number of sheets that related to the things that have to be checked.
He said he could not fudge a government inspection for anyone as if the vehicle was involved in an accident later on
he could lose his mechanics license and be out of a job.
|The size of the tool box and amount of tools a mechanic now requires to do his job is unbelievable.|
|Bill had a car on the hoist so he could show us the various itmes as he explained the things to us.|
|Thanks to Bill we are now a lot wiser when it comes to importing a car in to BC |
whether it be Vintage, Collectable or a late model that we are going to use for a second car.
