    Default Who owned this??

    This is probably the wrong sub section. But does anyone know who owned this speed? I wanna talk to the last owner cuz I'm looking into buying it. Probably my first question would be what were you thinking when you said you need to do something with the paint lol. But if anyone knows anything about this please let me know. Thanks

    It's cuz they can't sell it certified so you can't finance it which means you gotta drop the 12gs cash which sucks

    I wouldn't buy that car unless they were willing to drop the price to 5G's. The "as is" clause is a sale killer. No guarantees is way to risky for what they are asking. You would need to replace all the airbags and seats to get it to pass safety. Airbags are a grey area in the safety aspect.
    1991 Nissan Pathfinder - trade in, 2005 Mazda 3 GX ty grey - Write off, 2010 Mazda 3 GT E sedan CWP- trade in, 2010 Speed 3 w/tech CWP - Up for sale (soon), 2007 Mazda 3 GS silver- motor swapped in to 2009 MS3 CWP that had blown engine, 2002 BMW 330ci silver- new winter ride, 2005 BMW M3- new toy

    Yah that's what I was thinking It has the stock wheels. And the sits I would trade for stock speed seats and cash and that would clear that up. But like it has all these upgrades and there's no accessport so I'm not sure what kind of tune it's running and what not

    You are buying a "AS IS" no idea what is wrong with this car. If they are not willing to sell it certified then there must be something seriously wrong. IT doesn't help that the seats are missing, the steering wheel needs to go back to stock. What condition is the air bag module in? They say the car is "car proofed" but that doesn't mean it's not hiding an impact that was cash repaired. You'd be surprised how many people know people who can fix things on the cheap.
    I say stay away from this car, invest some money on a real car.

    Yea I guess it's basically a pos lol. But a 5k cash offer probably wouldn't hurt just to try and flip it after I make it "road worthy"

    I don't think they would accept my offer, besides no room to store a track car for now.
    As for the tear down... Not a day goes by I don't want to have a speed sedan again

    denied an SSC if:

    In the body and interior:

    a) any bumper, fender or mudguard has been removed or is mounted insecurely;
    b) any body part has protruding sharp edges that could be hazardous to
    pedestrians or passengers;
    c) any hood latch or passenger door does not operate as intended;
    d) the driver's sun visor does not operate properly;
    e) any occupant seat is insecure or fails to maintain its adjustment;
    f) the inside and/or outside rear-view mirrors are loose, cracked or
    have any significant reductions of the reflective surface, or the
    inside mirror (where required) is missing;
    g) where required, the seat belt assemblies are missing, insecure,
    damaged, inoperative or do not function as intended;
    h) the frame or any structural unitized member is broken or cracked;
    has any loose or missing connecting fasteners; or is perforated with
    rust that could downgrade the safety of the vehicle; or
    i) The under-body, including the trunk floor pan, is perforated by rust
    or damaged or has any opening that may allow entry of exhaust gas.


    Glazing
    a) any glass, where required, is other than safety glass;
    b) any glazing material has exposed sharp edges, a missing part or is insecure;
    c) any safety glass in the windshield, or to the left or right of the
    driver, has been replaced with any vision-obstructing material,
    or is clouded or fogged so as to affect the driver's vision;
    d) the windshield has any star, crack or stone chip in the area swept
    by the driver's wiper blade that could affect the driver's
    vision; or
    e) the driver's window does not open freely.
    Lighting and Electrical
    a) any prescribed lamp fails to operate or interferes with any other circuit;
    b) any turn signal indicator lamp fails to operate properly;
    c) any lamp or reflector is loose or missing in whole or in part, or

    j) where originally fitted, the neutral safety switch has been removed
    or allows the starter motor to operate in any other than the
    neutral and park positions; or
    k) the speedometer is not in good working order.

    "Prescribed Lights" is the phrase used to cover the lighting
    requirements of vehicles for the purposes of the HTA, and applies to
    all vehicles, including passenger cars, light and heavy trucks and
    trailers. "Prescribed Lights" vary with vehicle dimensions and include
    the lights listed below:

    Headlamps: no more than four, and shall be white or amber in color;

    Turn signals: shall be self illuminating;

    Stop lights: shall be red or yellow in colour;

    Tail Lights: shall be red in colour;

    Licence plate: rear plate must be illuminated by a white light;

    Reflectors: shall be red in colour, located at the rear and as close
    as practical to the outside of the vehicle body (most tail light
    lenses incorporate a reflective lens in their construction); and

    Side markers: one on each side near the front, green or amber in
    colour, and one on each side near the rear, red in colour.

    NOTE: Although side marker lights are not required for certification
    of a motor vehicle with a length of 6.1 metres (20 feet) or less, the
    Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) requires all vehicles
    manufactured on or after January 1, 1971, to be equipped with side
    marker lights.


    Engine and Controls
    a) with the engine running, there is any visible leakage in the fuel
    system (the fuel tank does not have to be filled before inspection for
    leaks);
    b) any attachment or component of the fuel system is insecure or
    missing, including a proper fuel filler cap;
    c) the accelerator linkage fails to return the engine speed to idle
    when the pedal is released; or,
    d) the power steering belt is defective, incorrectly adjusted or missing.
    Exhaust System and Manifolds
    a) any exhaust component is missing or mounted insecurely;
    b) any exhaust leakage is present, other than from the manufacturer's
    drain holes;
    c) any exhaust component is within the occupant compartment, or is so
    located or unguarded that any occupant may be burned
    by entering or leaving the vehicle; or
    d) the exhaust system has been shortened or modified from original, so
    as to fail to direct the exhaust beyond the underbody of
    the occupant compartment or luggage compartment.
    NOTE: Although emission control devices are not required to be
    inspected for the purpose of issuing an 550, the motor vehicle will be
    in violation of the Environmental Protection Act if any component of
    the emission control system is inoperative, defective, has been
    removed, or fails to function as intended.


    Trailer Hitch
    a) any trailer hitch or attachment is damaged, excessively worn or
    insecure as to affect its proper operation; or,
    b) any trailer hitch lock assembly fails to operate as intended.
    Steering and Suspension
    a) any visible leakage of fluid is present in the power steering
    system or the reservoir fluid level is too low;
    b) the steering column, box or couplings are excessively worn or loose
    on their mountings, or parts are missing or loose;
    c) any steering linkage joint is worn or loose;
    d) any steering system, or suspension locking device or clamp is
    missing, loose or worn so as to affect its proper operation;
    e) the front wheels are visibly out of alignment;
    f) the front wheels fail to turn from full right to full left freely;
    g) free movement of the steering wheel exceeds manufacturer's limits;
    h) the power steering system does not operate as intended;
    i) any component, or attachment of the suspension system, or its
    supports, is excessively worn, corroded, broken, bent,
    cracked, loose, disconnected or missing;
    j) the front or rear axles are tracking improperly so as to affect
    handling the vehicle;
    k) any ball joint is worn beyond manufacturer's limits; or
    I) any wheel or axle bearing is excessively worn, loose or damaged.


    Wheels and Tires
    NOTE: Only those wheels/tires installed on axles are inspected.
    a) any wheel-retaining device is worn, defective, loose or missing;
    b) any wheel is cracked, excessively bent or has been repaired by welding;
    c) any wheel spoke is loose, broken or missing;
    d) tire shows any exposed cord;
    e) any abnormal bump, bulge or knot is present;
    f) any tire makes contact with any vehicle component;
    g) any tire bears the markings "not for highway use" or "farm use only";
    h) any tire is worn beyond the minimum allowed tread depth; e.g.
    built-in wear bar indicators are showing on two adjacent major tread
    grooves at three equal spacings around the circumference of the tire;
    i) any tire is of a smaller size than vehicle manufacturer's specified
    minimum size;
    j) any mixture of 50 to 60 series are installed on the front axle and
    any other series on the rear;
    k) any tire differs in construction type from any other tire on the
    same axle; or,
    I) except on a vehicle fitted with dual rear tires, any mixture of

    c) any brake tubing has heavy corrosion scaling;
    d) any vacuum or hydraulic hose or tube is damaged, insecure, missing
    or chafes against any part of the vehicle;
    e) with the foot brake applied, the brake pedal moves toward the floor;
    f) the brakes, including the parking brake, are not adjusted properly;
    g) any brake, including the parking brake, fails to release
    immediately when the pedal or lever is released;
    h) any mechanical, vacuum or hydraulic component is missing, cracked,
    loose, badly worn, seized or damaged so as to affect
    its operation;
    i) any hydraulic component is leaking fluid;
    j) with the motor running and the brake pedal applied, the brake
    failure warning light comes on;
    k) with the vacuum depleted from the power brake (by depressing the
    brake pedal three or four times), the motor shut off and
    the brake pedal depressed, the pedal fails to move momentarily towards
    the floor when the motor is started;
    I) any brake drum or rotor is worn beyond the manufacturer's limits,
    or the friction surfaces
    are damaged mechanically other than from normal wear;
    m) any brake rotor cooling fin is cracked or broken;
    n) any bonded brake lining is thinner than 1.5 millimeters (1/16 inch)
    at its thinnest point;
    o) any riveted brake lining is thinner than 0.8 millimeters (1/32
    inch) at its thinnest point;
    p) any brake lining is broken or loose on its shoe or pad;
    q) any brake lining is contaminated;
    r) any wheel hub seal, axle seal or oil retainer is missing or leaking;
    s) the parking brake does not hold properly and release fully;
    t) where originally fitted, the dual-circuit brake warning lamp fails
    to operate as intended; or,
    u) on the road test, the braking system does not brake evenly or stop
    the vehicle within the required distance.

    I removed the airbag from my RX-7. No one looked twice when I got my safety done.

    One of the questions asked when you get insurance is: "Is the vehicle modified or customized?" To that, the answer would be yes.

    Looking at the ad for this car. The paint is super duper faded, jambs not painted, looks like corners cut.

    Corners cut outside probably means...

    Airbags are a grey area, like I stated before. We actually called the MTO about this at work because of the used cars we sell. According to them, "based on technician" However not a single tech in the shop stated they would sign a safety with an airbag light on. Let alone missing air bags. It still is a "safety" concern. In the end they can still come after you if the bags do not deploy in a crash. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
    Look at the tire section though, a little further off topic but correct me if I am wrong but it said nothing about load ratings in that section. Again we had a discussion and called the MTO. The car MUST have equivalent OR higher load rated tires according to the car spec. Again a grey area

    It's heavily modded, the colours are ugly but it has very low KM for the year. The paint doesn't look faded however, like mentioned they didn't paint the door jams. From what I can see in the photos, it doesn't look like a terrible car worth only 5K but again I haven't seen the Carproof or the vehicle up close.
