  • $$ Canadians $$

    So with the devaluation of our dollar to US$.80, along with the already exorbitant costs to send stuff from our favourite US suppliers across the line, what sort of strategies are some of you using to get the parts you need? I understand that having a mail drop near a border crossing is a way to go, but how else can we get access to decent parts for our cars?

    Has anyone dealt with Canadian based suppliers? I'm aware of Drake's and Obsolete Auto, but who else is out there that we could use?

    Is Greyhound an option?
    Does anyone check what gets shipped in the bottom of a bus?

      The CDN $ was at .$0.92 US$ at the end of August, lost about $0.12 up to last week, to $0.80;
      OTOH the CDN $ was at $0.55 UK pound sterling (GBP) at August and $0.52 GBP last week, lost only $0.03 in the same period.

      Sourcing from Britain is becoming more attractive, and although the shipping cost may be a bit higher, there is seldom the usurious 'customs clearing' fees.

          My son who just graduated from university was just offered a job at a pharmaceutical company in North Carolina (he has dual citizenship). I think he may become my transportation service when he comes home to visit or we go to visit him
