Please help us Canadians!
« on: June 21, 2007, 02:24:40 AM »

Alright; the gist of this is, apparently the Canadian Ministry of Transportation is looking to set back the age of a car that is eligible for import from 15 years, to 25 years. This is going to be a huge slap to the face to all of the second-hand importing companies that import vehicles from Britain, Germany, and Japan especially. This would align us with the U.S. law of a minimum of 25 years old.
I realize that a lot of the people on here are not from Canada, some could careless what goes on up here. But from a car enthusiast to another car enthusiast, I just ask for a bit of your time please, to see if you can help us out here.

Wow, hadn't heard that.  It sure doesn't make sense that they would prefer that we import older, less efficient and less safe vehicles, does it?  Actually, I hadn't planned on importing anything anyway, but I know that I benefit from the current importing trend, as I have a Lexus SC400, and all the (nearly identical) Toyota Soarers that are coming in are boosting the market for speed and handling equipment.  I hope that such a law won't affect components such as low mileage engines that we're currently getting from Japan.
