Talk of unpaved back roads has to make Rudy eyes pop outa his head, he hits the brakes harder to avoid potholes then most people would to avoid a kid running out on the street!!!!

All of these ideas sound good to me...east end, west end, niagara region, up north...I'm interested in any of them. As an east ender, it might actually be fun to head over to the west end for a change. Snowboarding trip sounds good too. Steve, I hear you 100%, I would love to drive my car across Canada and just pitch a tent somewhere every night. I would be worried it would break down out in the middle of nowhere and leave me late getting back to work, though.

Nice, we'll do it next year Brent. If your car didn't break when you thrashed it on the midnight cruises, I don't see why it would break when cruising across the country. I'd bring a jack and tools anyways just incase... maybe tow a parts car behind me

In the very least some rad hoses, an alternator, a starter, maybe a few rockers, heck maybe some spare ball joints...

Distributor, coil, I always carry one spare long ignition wire.... just in case. Oh I can't forget a small jug of unmixed coolant. 4ft of fuel line, a spare section of brake line, which reminds me... I like to carry a spare for all the relays and about 5 of each fuse in case I get really unlucky.

Oh and a spare tire.

you better bring a big jug of distilled water if you're bringing a jug of unmixed coolant, either that or a coffee filter so you can filter the water that you got from the ditch on the side of the road using an empty water bottle lol

what about the cordless drill, self tapping screws, zip ties, hose clamps, jb weld, liquid gasket, electrical tape, duct tape etc...

I have never had CAA, dailying my old 510k km's e30 was awesome without, calling rudy at 2 in the morning for a fuel pump and putting it in on the side of the road is fun

This is a funy thread-getting everyone to list what to bring to replace broken parts on cruise across Canada based on their experience...I think Steve's idea of towing the whole parts car behind might be the best! Can I add in relays and a thermostat?

Don't forget the trailer with spare tires! along with rims mounted with some crappy tires for some nice drift spots you could come across.
