Ontario is eliminating the $30 Drive Clean test fee for light-duty vehicles, such as most cars, vans, SUVs and light trucks, as of April 1, 2017.
The $30 Drive Clean fee will be waived starting April 1, although motorists will still be required to bring their older vehicles in for testing and pay for any required repairs.
Here is a very helpful checklist by Clayton Seams from Driving.ca:
Despite the unfavourable exchange rate for Canadians, buying cars out of the U.S. still makes sense in a few scenarios. I’ve done it a few times, and I’ve learned all the hoops you have to jump through. It’s not impossible but it does take work. Here’s how to import a car into Canada: … continue here
News: Hagerty’s – Top Ten most Insured Cars …
Here is another terrific article from our friends at Hagerty:
“Most were built in the 1960s. That’s where the similarities end, however, as their market performance differs wildly. The Hagerty Vehicle Rating measures a vehicle’s performance relative to the rest of the market by examining insurance policies and quotes, Hagerty Price Guide value changes, and sales activity in both the private and auction markets. After measuring the rating for each, this is how Hagerty’s top 10 stack up.”
Mustangs at Mosport is a go for Monday July 3th 2017! The drivers meeting at Ford HQ is currently being scheduled and will be announced in the coming weeks. Pricing this year is is $300 if paid by February 28th. $325 from March 1st through April 30th. $350 May 1st through June 30th, or $400 at the gate (assuming we have room). A slight change this year with shirts, they will be available at the event for purchase. I have attached the forms to Mustangs at Mosport 2017. Also new for this year is an electronic entry form…
*** Rain Date Change ***
Wednesday April 26th – GHMA Cruise to Port Dover!
Because of the rain forecast for April 19th the Cruise is now scheduled for April 26th instead!
“The plan is that we meet at Tim Horton’s, Wednesday April 26th, west side of Brant St, just North of the QEW. It is located across Brant from Costco but many of you have been meeting us at this location in the past so should remember where it is. We plan to depart Tim’s at exactly 10:30 AM and will exit to south Brant and go only a few meters before we turn on the 403 ramp west to Hamilton. I would suggest that you get to Tim’s at approx. 10:00 so that you can order coffee, food etc and meet up with many of us before we leave.
The final destination is the Erie Beach Hotel, Port Dover with arrival at approx. 12:00 Noon for a feed of Perch or whatever great foods you desire. I will lead the parade and will try to keep at approx speed limits to keep us together. Try to bring someone along with you to make it more fun.
If you could send Jerry Dunn an e-mail email@example.com to confirm yes or no it would be appreciated because if the group reaches a certain number it is always good if I can call ahead to reserve spots.”
May 7th – GHMA May Cruise right after the meeting. Details to follow.

Mustangs are our passion!
We drive them, race them, restore them, preserve them and just plain enjoy them. The Golden Horseshoe Mustang Association was originally started as a Classic Mustang club in 1995 by a core group of Classic Mustang enthusiasts in the Greater Toronto Area. Over the years we have become an all years Mustang club and one of the largest Mustang clubs in Canada.
We participate in various events, car shows, travel, charities and much more throughout the year. If you interested in the car hobby, our many social events, then please feel free to attend one of our monthly meetings held at the Ford HQ in Oakville Ontario or Contact us for more info.
