GTO in Canada...Yes thats correct...in CANADA!

So I picked up my 2006 GTO last thursday. I tried a while ago; bringing one to Canada; but it didn't work; safety issues they claim. So a guy I work with said he swore he saw a GTO sitting at one of the local chevy dealer ships. Went to check it out and ended up taking it home. Insurance checked out; same with import and safety inspection. It was actually cheaper for me to insure this car than my 2003 Sierra.

More pics to come once I clean her up a bit.

Transport Canada has recently changed their laws which allow cars like the GTO and the EVO 9 to be imported into Canada.
Very nice car, and hopefully in the near future I will be another lucky Canadian to own one of these nice cars.

Hey, I'm in Canada also, how much you think it'll cost to import a GTO here anyway?
I got my eye on this '06 Goat in Chicago.

BTW, is it possible to import it myself? If so, how complicated is it?

Got my goat after 4months of trying

Hey guys

I picked up a Black 2006 with red leather from Delray beach Florida last week. Border issues and a tranny issue has prevented me from enjoying the goat. Next week she will be back from the shop and ready to go. I'll post some pics soon.
