New Grand National Owner From Coquitlam BC Canada
« on: September 18 2020, 01:49:59 AM »
Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself. Name is Am, just picked up a 1985 Grand National last month. Had been parked for over 16 years. Has 148000km's. The car is very clean and 99% rust free, has some surface rust on frame which will clean up.

I will be very busy on this site, so please bare with me if I have alot of questions, and ask for help.

Also wondering if there are any other members on here from British Columbia on the site.

Take care and be safe!!

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Thanks guys!!

Was always on the Oldsmobile sites as I also have a 1969 Cutlass 442. But the GN is my main priority now, got to get it fired up and driving.

I think there are a few guys in the area.  Turbo Larry Myhres lives on the east coast of the island in a town called Bowser.  Sounds more like a Saskatchewan kinda name, but no one actually asked me....
