I will repost what started this:

An idea has been suggested over on Canadian Rodder and I would like to carry it here.  Since Canadian Rodder is primarily Western Centric, I felt it should be seen here as well in the primarily Ontario audience.  The concept is bulk buying from Summit.  We know they have the largest array and inventory of speed and hot rod parts in the world, many of which are not readily accessible in Canada.  Their prices are as low as you will ever see and their delivery is usually quicker then ordering through a Canadian supplier.

If you have been ordering from Summit and having it delivered to a US drop point, you have to cross the border (which you cannot do now) , travel generally several hours, use fuel, put up with those border guys going in both directions and pay HST on your purchases when returning to Canada.

Summit offers free shipping to Canada on orders over US$299.00 (CA$395.85) and only charges border charges HST + brokerage for a total of 18.33% or about CA$20.00 over HST on a US$300.00 order.  You have to pay HST anyway and that $20.00 is miniscule compared to paying KINEK, travelling to the US and going through the border hassle.

I have suggested that we do periodic regional orders, maybe setting up a thread on Ontario Rodders where we could test the waters.  The central person would order on their credit card and anyone being part of that order would e transfer the money to the person doing the ordering before the order is placed.  The complete order would be entered but not completed so we would know if there are any back orders and the exact final cost.

I am not trying to undermine any Canadian suppliers, but if their prices are gouging or they only carry an alternative part which you really didn’t want, then let’s do this and save some money.  We know you shop at Summit already.  I am in no way affiliated with Summit.

If your order comes to US$300, then you don't need this now. If you don't need the part yesterday and can wait until we have US$300 worth of orders, then post what you need with part number and I will start an order. When we reach the limit we can look at where the parts will eventually be going and try to group the order so people in the same area can group their order and have it sent to a central location. I can either collect the money and pay Summit or if you prefer, someone in the group, perhaps the person with the largest part of the order can collect and order. We'll know better if this goes.

Warren

If it helps you reach your $300 goal, please add a tachometer for me. Whatever kind you advise is fine with me Warren but I prefer to mount it on the engine if possible unless that kind is more expensive.

Do you have any pictures of how you would like it mounted? Do you want a 2" of 5" or something in between. Perhaps go into the Summit site and check out Tachs.
