Thanks Tbone1209 I figured you were a friend. I just wanted to see if I was right.
All the cars are nice and all of them had flaws...its typical stuff for 40+ year old cars!

You really interested in hearing a guy making a statement like that elaborate on anything? Link to a vaporware electric truck and a snide statement about his perception of somebody based on what they drive..

I have never bought a car from Canada and while Google says importing it is no problem, my concern would be if buying at a distance via the Internet that if there was some material misrepresentation of the car or other fraud-related issue, I wouldn't even begin to know the appropriate legal channels to pursue action if warranted.

I guess the same issue applies across state lines but I guess there is some base comfort in knowing I'd have some measure of protections (which I imagine are minimal regardless).

There's no protection up here..it's how we pay for our health care.

They're not minimal they're non-existent. You're buying a 40 year old used car from a private party over the internet.

I get there's fear of buying from a "foreign country". But in reality buying from Buffalo or from Toronto is not any different for cars in question. If they're a POS, they're a POS and you have no recourse on either side of the border.

The thread is as much if not more about the buyers you are targeting than about your car. You do realize that, right ?

Vaive,

I spend a lot of time in Ontario. Have for 25 years. Of course it's not that difficult to import a car from Toronto to Buffalo. You just can't convince 90% of the people in the US of this fact, and those are the ones bidding on BaT.

Hell, the vast majority of Americans have zero knowledge of your entire country. This coming from someone whose wife and kids are Canadian. Canadians are way more informed about the US than the other way around. Much more informed in fact.

What's the population? They have different currency? Don't they speak French? Aren't you afraid of the polar bears? Isn't it cold up there all the time?

So now on BaT, you have to sell your car AND educate the buyers about Canadian importation. One more step most American buyers don't want to bother with. There are plenty of cars right here in the US, they say.

It's hard enough buying a car on an auction site. Add importing it from a foreign country with polar bears and tundra, and you limit your bidders.

Heh. I suppose that's not too far from the truth.
Like I said earlier, it's very easy, but people's default setting is laziness. Oh well, their loss.

As for stereotypes, it goes both ways. I too have spent a lot of time up there. The typical Canuck thinks 28 million Americans die on the steps of a hospital every year. And for God sake's stop wearing Speedos on Maine's beaches. OK this applies only to Quebecers who aren't all that Canadian, but still.

Yeah, when my Canadian buddies start busting my American chops, I just bring up the CAD. That shuts 'em up every time.
