Merlin 91/97 is on a distinguished road
Default Wish me luck......

Hey all,

Just thought I'd let you know I'm flying to TO this weekend to purchase that 97 SSEi I was talking about. I hope the car is as good as SE89 said it was, and I hope I don't have any problems with it until it makes the 2000km trip back to my driveway. (And even then I don't want any problems, but they are to be expected ).



Here'* a link to the buildsheet (if anyone is interested)

My current "master plan" is to just keep the 97SSEi for 4 years and then use it for a downpayment on a 2007 50th Anniversary Bonneville. I'm still planning on keeping Black Magic.... oh.. which reminds me...

Anyone got any name ideas for the 97SSEi?

dude, I really doubt you will have any regrets with this purchase! the difference between your car now and the SSEi will make you very happy.

Well I'll be around Saturday.... I've got to stop into the MOT (Ministry of Transportation?) and get a 10 day transit slip for the car so I can drive it back to NS.

I'm not sure what hotel I'm going to be staying at, maybe something on Airport Road... any suggestions?

Yea you're right... that'* kinda eriee.... .... RIP eh.... <shutters>
I'm just thinking of the 2000km trip back to NS.. which I've never taken before.

It'll be only my 2nd time in TO.... I've spent less then 12hrs in the city... the first time was last month, and I only went to the Eaton Center and drove around downtown.

Never been to Quebec before either.... I won't hit familar turf for 1700kms.... hehe.

A 12 hour drive is easy. Just drive 6 rest 1 and drive 6 more.
