interesting find. Don't understand how it would be deemed irreparable and not be allowed to be licensed for the road if there was absolutely no body damage, just alot of missing parts. Seems a little fishy to me. Not to mention speedo missing and been trashed. Who knows the mileage on it.

I suspect that "deemed unrepairable" is Canadian for "written off". My guess is that the cost for a shop to put it back together exceeded the value of the car (or 75% of the value, or whatever).... In the States, that would be a "salvage title", even if the body chassis were not damaged; it's all about cost. :D

I'd expect that that car could be imported to the States and titled just fine; problem is that after the costs, fees, etc., you could just buy a nice unmolested 97-99 V8. But this car could be a fun track rat! :thumbup:
