There's an OQCGP Spring BBQ "meet and meat" that looks like its going to be Sunday May 29 in Etobicoke. As soon as something's set, I'll relay the info here.

I've been an OQ member (Ontario Quebec Club Grand Prix) for 10 years and we have one of these every spring and usually in the fall as well. We get anywhere from 30 to 100 people out depending on interest at the time but its always a good crowd!

hi fellow Ontarions

I go to the st cath GM show every year - i live in the area, it's pretty cool, tour the plant, lots of nice cars.
Didn't have my Monte for the last show but also never saw one there ever before.

Looking forward to 2012 show and bringing the Monte, my understanding the engines were built in that plant.

Would like to see other LS4'ers, before i got my car i've only seen a few other ones out there on the roads. Couple Montes,  I think i've only ever seen one GXP and maybe 4 or 5 impala's.

So this area definitaly does not represent.

Hi I just bought an GXP today and with all the buzz around tranny failures the question begs to be answered... where or who is the goto tranny rebuilder for our cars in Ontario?

I'm new on here, but i've had my 06 MonteCarloSS since it was new.
210k km on it now.  And its in the body shop.  Got hit by a lady who can't/shouldn't drive in the snow.

I'm looking for a Tranny shop as well. :(
I really don't want to give the stealership any more money.

Driving back from Iowa City on Sunday, I passed a dark cherry GP GXP (while driving my midnight blue GP GXP), it was looking pretty sweet!
