Looking for a Spyder in Ontario

Postby Anonymous » Tue Jan 08, 2002 8:52 pm

Man, I never thought that I would have trouble getting a Spyder. You know the story, research, research some more, convince your wife she would look really cool in the passenger seat,get her OK then make your decision.Check out the importing and run into a brick wall. I really,really, really would like to join the club literally, but the Canadian government seems to have other ideas. There must be a legal way around this dilema.<P>Before I head to a customs broker I was hoping that there may be a fellow Spyder lover who might be able to help me out.<P>Thanks,<P>Little Joe<P>[This message has been edited by LittleJoe (edited 01-08-2002).]<p>[This message has been edited by LittleJoe (edited 01-08-2002).]

<P>I would be interested in your experience, for I must say that my garage needs another vehicle in it, even if my wife can't see why. She must love me ( either that or is tired of seeing me pine for a Spyder )since she said do what you want. ( I know, but she really means it :0))<P>Please e mail me.<P>Thanks,<P>Mike<p>[This message has been edited by LittleJoe (edited 01-16-2002).]

Hi Charles:

Also would like to be informed on importing, 550 Spyder into Ontario.
What import duties, registration, taxes, etc. Best builds to buy-avoid?

Cheers,

Roy Marques

I was told that if you can prove the car was 15 years OR older; there is no issue importing into Canada? This I believe is the reason we're starting to see so many right hand drive cars now?

Yes, they have to be 15 years or older as per the kit car regulations in Canada. A Spyder registered as a 1955 Porsche won't cut it, it has to be based on the actual build date of the vehicle and you'll have to have proof of that date to get through customs and cross into Canada. Other than that it should be fairly straight forward -- just watch out for the vehicle branding as well, make sure there's no 'rebuild, 'salvage' or the like on the vehicle or it may never make it across the border.

Hi there,

I have an early desirable Chuck Beck build that I have had in Toronto for years that I might consider selling.

It was imported legally, licensed as historic vehicle and insured.

E-mail me if you would like any additional information.

Thx,
Daryl

16 Years ago! Wow, that's crazy but, at the same time speaks volumes that the demand for these amazing cars is still there, and has only increased. ;) I know that when i look for Spyder's availability for me to ship to Canada; I can now look at cars built as late as 2003 although in my mind I'm still thinking early 90's. I'm just getting old...

Take care all, hope to add my own car to the mix soon enough.

Just build it! Import the parts and do the assembly your self. Many of the cars that are 15 years old are just that, old.

I would however; i'd like a car that runs! ;) Personally, i've thought about it however, it's extremely time consuming and with 2 young kids ( aged 1 and 4 ) the time I'd have to spend building it would be very limited. Plus, my experience with cars is fixing minor issues, and detailing. Could be a fun project however and, with Youtube anything now and days is possible.

Which kits would you recommend I look at if I was to build one myself?
