Hi Toyman
You are welcome to stop by,at our
place, at 2723 Pierre Bernard, corner
Pierre de Coubertin.. I will be absent
a week from now, for some time,
so starting tomorrow and the rest of
the week is OK.

Like my previous post says, we are
in a way connected to SAAQ Verification
Center.

As for "Buggiies" ,"at present we are
restoring our hand-built special.

Be seeing You
ewhen

I just can't figure this one out.
How come that six grands schmock
like me, was given OK to use the
own built cars on all US and Canadian
roads and highways, but large cash
spending manufacturers can't do that.

We were planning to go electric with our
next Locost project. It doesn't look like
a great idea, maybe in Lower Slobodia
but not here in Quebec.

Sure I can, and so can anybody else,
by simply calling the nearest SAAQ office.
Here below is an example of one, from
several centers around Montreal area.

CENTRE DE VERIFICATION MECANIQUE MONTREAL
6946, RUE JARRY EST
MONTREAL, QUEBEC
H1P 3C1
514 325-0002

In the meantime let us abolish redundancy .

I don't know of any cars being registered as
"locost" here in Quebec.
