  1. Way to go Izzy, got to love ICBC and the way they do things, NOT!!!!At least the car is yours now. Wendy
  2. Izzy: Dont fret on this thing with ICBC, I have done this exact thing with 2 cars now. No big deal at all really and I feel sorry for you at this point.Here is what to do, and what we have done and it works all the time.You have to have a signed bill of sale from the previous owner with the date of purchase and amount paid, and the cars VIN number and your name and info on it.Because this is a Alberta car, Alberta will not disclose the last owner, make a note of that when you called them.Go to your insurance broker and ask them for a Unregistered Vehicles and Missing Signature declaration paper.Take this paper and write on it that you have the bill of sale, phoned alberta and they wont divulge info due to privacy act on the car, explain when you bought it and the Vin number etc. Make a little story out of it, for better reading. Fill in the required info on the statement, take it to a notary, and have them read it and notorize it for you. Price should be about 35.00.When this is done, take the notorized paper to your insurance broker with your inspection certificate, original bill of sale, and then they can register the car in your name.I know it is a bunch of pissin around, but it works every time, trust me been there and done it on 3 vehicles, 2 which were from ALberta.Good luck,Wendy
  3. Just want to thank Izzy for doing a teach in on Betty's clutch today, she did shift a lot smoother on the way home. And for giving me some hints on different things I should do with her codes., egr and hoses that are not needed. Very much appreciative of your time .John, sure you can post some pics, i dont mind at all. I am glad you both enjoyed seeing her.Bil thank you as well for coming to see her as well.Wendy
  4. Oh Bill that will be great, see you tomorrow, and Izzy. Oh so many questions to ask LOLWendy
  5. Bil, she will probably be close to the entrance with our other Prinz 4, the show is on the north end of the mall parking lot, by Sport check. Hopefully we will see you there.Wendy
  6. Hi Guys; Well the girl has been home for a few weeks, and I havnt driven her much, just short trips to town, and back. We had to make some little adjustments to some things, like her tail lights, and park lights, but other than that everything seems to be working well.I did notice, that when I did drive her, she seamed to be shifting kind of funny. I tried her in normal mode and soft touch mode and both ways were similar in the way the car shifted, I talked to my brother about this and he said when he drove her he noticed the same thing and was wondering if it may be the clutch actuator, either needing to be cleaned and regreased or on its way out. So before I attempted to take out the CA i followed the directions of one of the members here on adding some spray grease inside the CA by removing the boot and spraying the grease inside, replace the boot and then go for a drive. This did help shift were a little smoother, but still seamed weird to me.Well we notice there was a smart for sale at a local dealer, an 08 , but I am sure the year wont make any difference in how the car drives, we asked to take it for a spin? Sure, so off we went.....Well low and behold, the car shifts the same as mine, this must be a SMART thing, plus they both steer the same as well, so I have come to the deduction that my car is fine, and this is how Smarts shift. LOL BTW it was fun to drive a real SMART, it even had paddle shift which was cool.I know it was suggested by some to have a private SMART car guys veiwing, but to try and arrange a good time for all to see her at once would be hard so............For those on the list that would like to see her she will be at our local Fathers Day Car Show in Vernon, this coming Sunday from 9:00 - 3:00Oh yeah, she is a real hit with the local kids with the Tuner cars that hang out at Tim Hortins in the evenings, they think she is just AWSOME and COOL.Wendy
  7. SHE"S HOME Yes got new springs from Eddy, and the thermostat seems okay after a good burp!Wendy
  8. HI guys, I know I said she was coming home a while back, but due to some technical difficulties and weather she is now in transit!!!!! She should be home in a few hours, can hardly wait. Here she is all packed up and ready for her road trip. Wendy
  9. I still have 2 rear passions rims with tires, tires are in fairly decent shape and would do one or more seasons. Make me a offer I cant refuse and they are yours. Wendy These wheels are SOLD, rolling their way to Ontario.
  10. Mike that car is in great shape, do you still drive it? What did you want done to it?Wendy
  11. I had a good laugh last Saturday. We took a picture of our NSU resto we did to the Kelowna MB dealership, to show the parts guy in there who has given us a hand with a few things related to our donor car. Anyhoo, showed him the pics, and he was quite taken with the car, and I have to quote him here " That the most intesting thing I have seen done to a Smart Car" Some how I dont think he gets what we have done....LOL we told him we would bring the car down to show him when it gets home, and he said he would love to see it, I really think he is going to be surprised to see what we did. LOLWendy
  12. Happy belated B-Day MikeWendy
  13. Are you looking for the preheater? Looks like this?Wendy
  14. Mike, I googled your car, nice little number, I would restore it, do you have a pic of yours? Hey you can ask my brother about doing the car. He works for Zeebz performance and Restoration in Calgary. www.zeebs.caThanks to all the others who posted with Congrats, now we just have to wait till she comes home, then I can drive it HE HE.Wendy
