Well, my drip drip problems has resurfaced. There is a nice puddle on my driveway and it glistens Green... Its time to bite the bullet and get a new radiator.

Any ideas on how spendy this item is...

You were bang on Jr. $213 CDN for the new rad, plus I need the usual flush and I'm goin to have them install it. I also managed to skid to a halt on a major street on my way to Canadian Tire, so I splurged and bought 2 BF Goodrich Performance Radial T/A'*

After everything, the tabby will be about $750 bones or so. Its like $100 in taxes...never fails.

Oh well, best to have a new rad, and new tires instead of getting into some serious potential trouble when winter rears its ugly head in a few months

Tommy...I was needing a new rad, with the trans fluid lines that run thru the rad I really didn't want to monkey around with a used radiator. I think it was worth it for me to get a new one installed. I can handle the expense....for now...lol

The marina style townhouses that you noticed are the newer townhomes built maybe 3 years ago on the west side of the Credit River south of Lakeshore. You know the old donut shop that was converted into a Starbucks beside the Port Credit Lighthouse...thast where I took the pics.

I live like maybe 4 blocks west of that, off Lorne Park Road. Where are you at?

I looked at a 1989 Black SSE in Port Credit- It didn't look anything like it did in the picture I got from the Net.... It looked like someone dropped the car in acid and pulled it back out. The interior wasn't much better either- leather ripped and stained, bad headliner, cracked lights, etc. I took it for a test drive- doors all rattling as I drove down the Lakeshore- it was unreal Anyway later that day, I found my 1991 SSE. It wasn't perfect either, but all the things that didn't work, I fixed. Still under construction though. I will have pics soon
