    Hello from Yorkton, SK

    Hey everyone, I just joined and wanted to say "Hi".

    I've moved here from Australia, and shipped my 18R-GU powered RA28 with me.

    Before the Celica, I had a 1981 Hilux that my brother and I swapped a 1UZ-FE into. Being a Toyota nut now living in Canada, joining this forum was the obvious thing to do!

    I'm in Yorkton, SK temporarily. The plan is to move to BC, but life has thrown a few surprises, so we'll see.

    oh my.

    welcome!

    The 4m scans on retrojdm have been extremely useful during my 4m rebuild. Cheers!

    Hello from Yorton, SK

    Welcome to the forum. I ate at the Boston Pizza in Yorkton 10 years ago. The bastards ran out of Tabasco Sauce.

    Thanks

    The roads in Yorkton suck. I'm still learning where all the big pot holes are.

    I'm hoping to do a few little road trips soon. I'm pretty sure I'll be heading to Riding Mountain at some point. Let's hope I don't hit any Moose.

    Hello from Yorton, SK

    Riding Mountain is dope. There's an ice cream shop at Clear Lake whose samples are gargantuan.

    Thanks. The photos make the paint look better than it is, so it will need a paint job at some point.

    I also plan to do a little more work to the engine, but otherwise it's done.

    Now that I'm finally on the road in Canada, I thought I'd take a few photos.

    I'll definately end up in BC, but probably not as far as Vancouver. The goal is somewhere in the Okanagan like maybe Kelowna.

    The funny thing is, my car came through Vancouver before being loaded onto a truck and delivered to me out here in the middle of nowhere
