I love that F1!! Plain Janes are my favorites!  Chris, let me know when you get tired of that one!

Yes it makes total sense to buy an AZ car and ship it, you should see how solid my 56 Olds is.
I'll never buy an eastern car again.

Do you have to have a broker to get a southern car across the boarder?

No I've always done it myself.  Not always the smoothest, but much cheaper.

You will need a notarized bill of sale with car, buyer and seller info and agreed price.  And then the title in your name.  Then have this info to the US border you'll be coming to at least 72 hours before you arrive with the car.  Go into the US border and they will come out and inspect the car quickly, check VIN or ID tags and stamp your papers...US side I'm usually done in a few minutes.

Now you go to the Canadian side...well this ALWAYS takes a while.  You need to fill out a form and then bring up all your paper work to the desk.  Then they will basically call you a cheat and a liar when they see how much you paid for your car.  They will imply that it's worth more, and try and pressure you into admitting you paid more.  So far as they are concerned you are trying to screw the Canadian Government out it's hard earned taxes!!

Also make sure you print out and bring any communication between you and the seller, to assure them that you are on the up and up.  Also if you have had the car transported to any point by a third party carrier, make sure you have all that communication and paperwork.

Like I said the US is the easiest to work with, the Canadian Tax collection border patrol will make things difficult.  But still worth it.

My 48 Desoto is almost criminal how nice it is.  2 patches that's it!!  Gotta love the dry states. 

But don't forget eastern WA and OR for dry cars.  That's high desert out there. Eastern WA is where my wagon came from.  And it's 100% rust free!

I was thinking the same thing.. I would just like some rust free metal to start with..

I would really love a Woodie Aspen/Volare Wagon stick or a 4 door Dart with a stick.

A good friend of my brother in high school was driving...get this...Volare wagon, E58 360/4bbl with a A833OD tranny and a 3.21 suregrip in a 8 1/4 rear!!  It was custom ordered by his Dad, and was optioned out with everything available, buckets, console, power windows, A/C etc. Red with woodgrain, with red interior with a weird hounds tooth insert in the seats.

I told them if they ever wanted to sell to let me have first chance...well the call never came and it's now lost.
