I live kind of in between Saskatoon and Moosejaw on a farm. And you are right about the space as I own 160 acers. Time is the major factor though as I work 12-14 hour days , working on building my house , raising 2 kids , maintaining 3 vehicles that my wife and I are driving , helping my mom fix her house in Saskatoon when I cant work on my own on a weekend , trying to find time to do the finishing touches on my 525iT so it can be inspected and put back on the road and I am sure there are a couple other things I cant think of right now to add to the list. I currently own 31 vehicles , most of which are projects with a couple parts cars so I am thinking I will have to pass on this deal now knowing the amount of work and time involved in the repair. I do not like taking my vehicles to a shop to get work done because I like to know how they are made so as to be able to fix them if they cause trouble somewhere down the road. As well most mechanic shops around here charge $90-$110/hr.
Thanks for the knowledge passed down everyone.
