15 yrs or older. (for Canada)..... Thems' the rules man. (25 for most of the
USA....California is even more complicated.
It would take me too long to explain it all, but Canada Customs & the local
DMV both say so.
No way around it w/o 10's of thousands of dollars in possible mods, and even
then, no guarantee.
Believe me when I tell you this, as I have been active on the
www.minimania.com website for 3 years
and have been involved in or read HUNDREDS of threads on this very subject.
See these 2 links to get you started.
