  1. Hello Mr . Geer.
    My name is Don MacAllister Owner of Dons Classic Cars & 50s Museum here in Langley BC.
    I am asking for your assistance to help complete a simple task regarding another vehicle I have purchased for my Museum. It is almost to obvious to be taken as a joke or even serious.
    Currently we have 10 vehicles registered with ICBC and to this point all has been problem free. This latest purchase has us all just scratching our heads in complete lack of common sense. Could you please call me in my office when you can spare a moment. Good weather days are almost over now till spring signaling all vehicles to be off the roads for the winter.
    We have been waiting almost 2 months to be told on the first call the application and Pics were never received at the N Van. offices. Later in the day we were told everything was received but was rejected due to certain areas not accepted in quality.
    I purchased the vehiclefrom my Museum mechanic who 10 months earlier applied for and received the Collector plates that we are applying for now.
    We did up another photo shoot filled in the correct forms and had our local ICBC office send everything over to the N Van. offices to be processed.
    Everything is at a standstill. I hope you can help us out here. Thanks
