Sad, for us anyway.

I remember going up there as a kid and after the exchange, I felt wealthy!! lol I think is was about 1.000USC = 1.350 CND.

Too coins were an even exchange. So my little devious mind was after the exchange was to then get all coins for my trip back home, but my mom put a stop to that!! lol

My Car WOO HOO...... Now SOLD
New car.... 2001 Jaguar XJR!!!!

Now we can expect the Canadian Government and Mercedes-Benz Canada to make it tougher yet to import a car into Canada from the US.
I am glad I imported my used CL500 last year.

Go George Bush! Weak dollar / strong Euro = expensive European cars/parts.

But...But...I thought Bushie's economy was Booming. Don't all those mean ol' International Currencies understand that. First the Yen, then the Pound, then the Euro now the Canadian thingie.

I think I have to rethink my position on George W. Bush's Economic Prowess. W has been President during the Strongest, most Robust GLOBAL ECONOMY in HISTORY, much at the expense of the US Economy. Heck of a job, Bushie!
