Hey Vish, welcome to the board! I actually live in Little Britain, but not too many people know where that is since it'* such a small town so I just say Toronto. But I work in Markham (14th & Kennedy) A 90 SSE with only 146km...good find. Just out of curiousity what needs to be done? L8r...Andru.

Hey
Thanks for the welcome
This is a list of what i need to do, I think for certification:
Oil Change
Fix Sunroof
Fix Door Handle and sensor
Radiator ($75) and Thermostat
Exhaust
Headlight Assembly ($105)
Tune Up (Plugs and Wires)

but i only paid 450 bucks for the car, so i dont mind the little money i gotta put in.
I live very close to 14th and Kennedy, where do u work??
I am always looking for parts source and advise. I tow her home in a few hours
Any advise??

Vish, I work at PLM Graphics, it'* about 30 seconds away from the Timmy'* on Kennedy just North of 14th. Doesn't sound like anything major needs to be done to the car, I think the only things that NEEDS to be done for cert is the exhaust and headlight assembly. But might as well fix everything else too. Happy motoring.

Well after a day of trying to get it towed, i finally get down there to find out that the alternator is dead
so it runs for 5 mins then dies
so add somemore to the list, but at least she is in the garage
