Welcome 356 John! as the guys have already said, you are no newby with that lineup of beautiful cars under your belt. As you probably know it's always a bit of a challenge in Ontario finding a Speedster or building one. The bigger the budget the easier it is to do here. The next challenge will be figuring out what you want your car to look like when completed. Whatever you do  it will be well recieved here and the techical support is always fantastic!

... there we was, waitin' for Rich and Tats, who was off tryin' to find Mt. Rushmore or sumthun'. Ain't none of us had a banjo, but we was there long enough to consider a corncob pipe and Jew's harp*.

Before we had a chance to set up a still or cook up some meth, there was a feller with a black Bee Em Double-U folleren' us around. He was friendly enough we didn't think he was a revenuer or nuthun', but we made him go look for them other folk whilst we set on the porch a spell.

Twernt no thang.

Beautiful car !

Iam outside of Peterborough on Pidgeon Lake for just over a year. Got the hell out of T O.

Good decision, my brother has a place on the lake in Fenelon Falls that he just retired to and my daughter went to school at Trent just outside of Peterborough. I'm still in west GTA but think of getting the hell out all the time. Probably 5 years left here though.

Hi 356 John, my car was imported as a kit in 1985 and assembled here; we were able to do that a lot easier back in the day. Now to import any completed replica into the country it must be 15 years old or older, with documentation to prove when it was built. I don't know what your budget is , but Intermaccanica in B.C. has a 2017 Canadian spec speedster with about 4000km on it for $62000.00 Canadian (a very nice car).

With all the restoration that he did he has the skills to put together a speedster or refresh one, Which is very cost effective.  
I Hate to belabour the point but the  issue I have is the seasonal driving is so short that without a good top and roll up windows or hardtop with roll up windows you won’t drive much hence my first try was to get a coupe but my IM is great.

Or........   You can do what many, many of your fellow Canadians did in the past when they found that the heat in their little VW Beetle wasn't exactly "robust".....

Just be on the lookout for a decent Eberspacher BN2 heater, restore it and install it in the car.  Doesn't matter if it's a Speedster, Roadster, 356 coupe or Spyder (with top and windows, of course).   It'll give you more than enough heat to make it comfortable in there and extend your driving year a bit longer until the salt appears late Fall and then disappears in, what......   July or so?

Love the stance on the CMC Californians (that was the name used for their version of the widebody); just like Mr. Nichol's Pearl.
