    Yes, I do. For those who are wondering, in Canada, PAL means Possession and Acquisition License. There are also a Restricted, Prohibited, and Possession only categories.
    I'd rather not post my entire collection, but there are pics of a few things I own throughout the forum. What about you CZ?

    Salam All,
    I remember this all during the amnesty in 2002. All this came about due to the ongoing fighting in CA by the motorcycle gangs there in Quebec. Everywhere it seems to be the same. Bad guys cause the problems and everyone gets a restriction on their rights/provisions. Same happened during the prohibition, the mafia back then could afford the Tommies which they used ruthlessly against the public and each other. The US government placed a 200usd tax stamp on all full auto purchases back then... a hefty sum except for the criminal elements.
    As for the hobby stuff, we have our resident expert on RC... Rotocraft.
    I started out on the Tamiyas back in '77. My first car I ever put together was the Tamiya Cheetah. The radios I used and still believe in are Futabas. I bought several other cars (some are collectors now).... Blackfoot, Clod Buster, FX10 (by Futaba), Team Associated RC10, Losi truck, HPI on road nitro, Yokomo YZ10... Can't remember what else. In the EARLY part of '90s I got into helicopters and bought a Hirobo Shuttle ZX.... Its a great but expensive hobby. I remember tricking them toys out with Novak speed controllers, custom motors with extreme rpms, the battery packs (SCR, And the SCE packs), oil shocks, and graphite chassis, custom gears and pinions.... lolz. Even have a trophy from one of the races. More recently I got the bug again and bought two SkyArctec Sky Fun Jets... Sadly after Rotocraft saw them sitting in my home having NEVER even flown them and catching dust - he bought them back from me...

    Ah!

    Right now I am trying to find a potohar or something similair that I would work on.. But since I cant differentiate b/w my throttle body or my carburator, i dont know how htat would work out..

    there was a time when I used to take my trusty Sentro all over Pakistan. From Karachi to Peshawar.. and many cities in b/w.. Met a lot of Pak gunners that way.. Till she broke down on the highway.. repeatedly.

    Will start dooing so again. Once i find a jeep i can trust..
