Had a customer out in AB who would buy pickups brand new, run them for a month and then sell as used in to the US. That was when the $ was at par. So if that price is right then you could buy a C8 every month and sell the "Used" one down in to the US of A
This was very common with privately owned diesel pick-ups here in AB back in the mid to late 90's. Actually you could drive them for 10,000 km, sell them into the states and buy another new one with what you sold it for. Not so much anymore with the dollar sucking. See a lot of US cars here now in the private used car lots. Red Deer Motors here have half their inventory at times that are US cars.

US base @ $60K would put CDN base at 1/3 more with the exchange rate I would think.
If the CDN base is only $70K the US guys will be flooding up here to buy em all

Ouch. Sorry to hear that Jeff. Get well soon and congrats on the Z. Was it an abdominal or a thoracic aortic?

Lucky it wasn't a rotten apple. If that would have blown you would not have had any enjoyment of that Z
Take care and get well to put some clicks on this year.
