Note your point about rubber bits. Vehicle has done 111K miles and will get CV covers and bushes on suspension checked whilst car in for mountings check. Will keep u posted as to what is found. You are right about the time of year I was in NS. Was there July and August 1991. Since studying in the US, I have always like to drive in the country I am living in. Canada no exception. Through contacts at Tri-star, I was able to get the loan of a Chevy Lumina APV 3.8L minivan. Loved that car!!!!!!! Nearly bought it and imported it back to UK. Eventually bought one in Florida (no road salt) in 1996 and imported it. With the exception of the Saabs I have owned, the Chevy was the most reliable car I have owned. Been on your web site to see why there was a musical ( 50s) ring to the link on your posts. All has been revealed, my friend.
