Even if it's a gift. Any time ownership changes in Ontario, re-inspection is required.


The only thing gift status avoids here is paying tax on the vehicle's value.

I'm glad I live in North Dakota, no stupid inspections.

Ontario recently cancelled emissions testing.

I sometimes wish I lived somewhere there were no mandatory mechanical inspections. I can just imagine the many amusing but questionable vehicular decisions I would make!!

Despite living right next door to the land of infinite rust (also known as the People's Republic of Minnesota), There aren't all that many cars out driving that are actually unsafe. Unless you go by Pennsylvania standards where a little bit of rust means the car is totally a death trap somehow.

That said, I have definitely made some 'questionable' vehicular decisions, one of which is driving a 27 year old econobox that I got for $350, to commute 85 miles a day.

So far none of my sketch-mobiles (of which there have been many) have left me stranded.

I see nothing in the wiring diagram that could make that happen.

Unfortunately, it looks like promoting that vid might have been the only reason the OP signed up. Crickets since then.

Coming from a guy who has been a glutton for punishment with my projects over the years. That car is worth a little bit. Fixing it up you will more than likely be in the hole. Or if you aren't, the amount of labor invested will have you there. I bet you can just get the title and list it for sale and make $500-1000 towards a new vehicle. Then you can just start looking for a 90s honda that is priced $1000 below list and needs some stupid easy parts to replace.
