Import tax....yes, but I always thought you northern boys had some sort of built in luxury tax on EVERYTHING from paint to toilet paper. Helps pay for the the national health insurance and other stuff. Could be wrong. Mine was a $32,000 price tag with the Premium pkg, and other bells and whistles.

I paid 25,100 US for my new GT (which is like 27,000 canadian) in Detroit. I brought the car back toToronto,only had to pay 195 import fee and install daytime running lights ($100). My car with exact options costs $36,500 here in toronto. I payed the same taxes as if I bought new here incanada.

Saved $10,000

That is my very point.

I live 2 hours or so from the Montana Border....I should head in to the States and buy me a GT

Relax, the ways things are going, the USA will be as socially engineered as Canada, and then all the prices will be the same. Of course you'll only be able to buy a vehicle that runs on fumes captured from a rotting heap of left wing ideas. But they'll all cost the same.

Why Canada isn't the 51st state of the union is beyond me. Nothing but an imaginary line that has no real value except providing murderers safe haven from the capital punishment.
