You obviously missed the joke. American's always said their dollar was worth oh so much more then the CAD, and now the tables are turned. Let the canuck have his fun.

ah well, small USDs are good for our export economy. now other countries can buy Big 3 cars for what they're really worth.

oh and canada is cool. they've got all the good bands. except their style is stuck in 1982.

I picked this up today. It is definitely an NA motor. looks in good shape except for the fact that it's missing the intake and exhaust manifolds.
