Help with buying a used car!

Hey, I'm thinking of buying my friends '91 EF and have a quick question. The car is currently off the road, but it is FIT. I was just wondering if there was a way to I guess get a 10 day permit without switching the car into my name. Like just to get it looked at by a mechanic. Or would my friend have to be the one to go to the MTO? Thanks a lot!

If the plates are in your friend's name, he has to get the trip permit. I think you have to show insurance as well.

yeah you need a valid policy number to get a truip permit.

What's the condition of the car look liek from what you can tell? 91 civic, check it out yourself and save your time and money. Look under the car for holes in the floor pan, jack up the front end, check for play in the wheels, check the breaks and make sure the lines aren't leaking, not a big deal if they are to change though, and then also make sure the headlights, etc are all good and then check the horn and seatbelts. Run the car, if the engine is vibrating, you have a miss or possibly just a really old t-belt and the timing is out a hair. if the exhuast looks good and the price is fair for the condition, it's a civic, parts are cheap and they're easy to fix you really can;t go wrong, just make sure the shell ahs no crazy rust holes.
