    Canada Closed to Kit Cars

    In Canada, it is against the law to build kit cars for the purpose of selling to the public. >
    We ( I ) no longer builds kit cars for resale. All customer vehicles have been completed and delivered. We ( I ) are presently only building vehicles for our (my) own personal use or for use by sponsors in their advertizing campaigns. All molds and panels have been sold but from time to time the completed vehicles may come up for sale.
    We ( I ) wish to thank everyone on this site for the great information and help over the years.
    It was a good run while it lasted.

    Sucks for folks in Canada.

    Stuff like that irks me.

    Nothing they could do if you build it for yourself, bring it to the U.S. and then sell it.

    Sell the kits, build them for free.

    that law was in for long time, you can build anything you want for your self ( Lambos,Ferraris etc. no one is going to bother U) but not as production sale!

    Suppose you built a kit car for yourself and decided to get rid of it. What then? Does it have to be yours for life and beyond or is there some point when you could sell it?

    private sale is fine, you just can't have a dealership full of replicas.
