Spt, I have no reason to doubt what you say. I know how you do your research & I must belive you. If the cars were modified to have matching numbers, it's the best damn job I have ever seen at making them look like factory jobs. Faded paint, factory -like pinch welds & all. I just don't see whay someone would go through all that effort to bring in a car. The costs of making such an authentic reproduction, just to have it registered, far outways the profitability fo bringing them over here for resale. It just doesn't make sense to me. Cool man.

BTW, I've been to Canada Customs Auctions before. All they do to "destroy" an illegal import is cut them in half. They do not crush them. The halves must be bought by different ppl from different parts of the country. They have auctions to offset costs that they are not being compensated for by the federal gov't (eg. re-po contracts). It IS a public auction.
