I'm not too comfortable with having the Border guards poking and prodding, sniffer dogs, etc, my `66 Mustang after all of the hard work done. As such, I'm staying on my own turf until I do feel OK about it. I brought my car down for the show in 2001 just before 9/11, but now......? Did anyone have a bad border experience either last year or this year?

Sure did, it was great!!! No problems with the border, none what so ever, oh yah maybe one.... :: Getting over the speed bumps in my car lol. This was the first year my dad and I went down there. We both plan on going down next year but next time we'll go down on Thursday rather than Sunday morn'n. Where abouts in BC are you???

I'm on Vancouver Island. Courtenay to be exact.
I have the Ferry to contend with so that's another "scratch and chip" worry with doors and people inching between cars.
I'm like a first time mother with this baby. worry, worry! ::

I cross into the states all the time with my '92 rag, and to a lesser extent with the '65. I have never had a problem, and as a matter of fact I spent close to ten minutes talking Mustangs with the US Customs guard the last time a couple of weeks back. He kept pretending to look at my ID the whole time, I guess so his boss would think he was working. ::

Just crossed over and back last weekend with no problems at all, nor did I notice anyone else being delayed. I crossed at Sumas and both Canadian and American border officers were quick, professional and friendly.
BTW - Spent last week house boating at Shuswap Lake. Met a bunch of very fun, friendly and outgoing Canadians - loved it, all except the price of gas!!
