Never wrestle with a pig.
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.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
