    Hello from french canadian!

    Hi ! whats up guys! My name is Gabriel and I'm from Quebec City in Canada. Like the title say's, I'm french but I'll do my best to write correctly. I'm 26yrs old and grow up in a V8 muscle crap family, but since I'm a young kid, I always got attracted by Japanese car, at my fathers detriment! That love for Japanese car make me wanna learn more about that country and it create that crazy pation that I've got for this country! Car, culture, lifestyle, history...

    Anyway, I'm a long time lurker on the JNC forum, but since I got no ''nostalgic'' car, I didnt want to disturb anyone.
    But now I've got my new KUJIRA baby and I'm proudly part of the family.


    ARIGATO GOZAIMASU!

    Nice! It's not a new purchase, is it? There was a white one for sale in Montreal for months that I could never get the car lot to return my calls about. Needed some gas tank work apparently...

    yes this is the one... you probably saw it on Kijiji? That site is so dumb, it says the car is in Mtl but in reality,the car was in Quebec City (250km away) And im pretty sure the old owner didnt even speak english...Thats why he probably never call you back. lol

    Yes ,need a gaz tank and some little frame work... the carb was dismanteled on the passenger floor to. He was asking 3500$ last year, didnt wort it o.m.o! But I got it for realy cheap.. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Right on! Ya, I saw it on Kijiji and I heard back once via email, something to the effect it needed a tank and some other work, but never heard back from again; even left phone messages for the guy. At that time I was considering a Crown from New Brunswick ($2800 to transport) and one in Saskatoon ($1500 to transport), and a non-runner was even more money to get moved. The distance + the lack of replies made it not the best choice for me.

    RockAuto has ready-to-go Crown carbs for US$150, which seems like a deal, honestly. I've just replaced most of my suspension bushings with a kit made for the 60-series, so most everything you need is available I think.
