    MV illegal on highway in Canada (Quebec)

    I sent a few emails out and filled out that form. Just had my iltis up near the QC border a few weeks ago, and was planning another road trip in it this fall. Sure want to know why we aren't going after bombardier if they sold our government unsafe vehicles! Would also like to know if this...

    My 1985 Bombardier Iltis

    My 1985 Bombardier Iltis

    Just picked this ol girl up. Previous owner didn't know much about it, he got it from a dealer who got it on a trade in. Has an Ontario title which is nice, I've been told that they can be hard to get plated in ON. Mechanically it seems pretty decent, the brake pedal is soft and the high...

    Been a while. Forgot to post any updates I guess. Truck has been good to me. Only drive it about once a month or so. Sure is fun in the snow! Changed the oil April 20th with 15W40 Rotella. Digital odometer has become unreadable, no idea how many miles it's been. Still needs paint and a...
