    Thank goodness for all the Canadian cars flooding the market.

    The woman started out looking like my mom and ended up looking like my great grandma did (at her funeral). The man started out looking like my dad and ended up looking like…my dad.

    Has anyone else noticed that the two cars in the pictures aren’t the same? Same body style; different color, trim, grill, and wheels. I guess it could have been restored but replacing the grill and trim with ones that don’t match the original doesn’t really make sense.

    Rusties Strangely, most of those cars that arrived in Canada were so filled with engineered-in planned obsolescence, that none survived, save for a few meticulous restorations. Too bad U.S. didn’t build more durable, longer lasting cars as Toyota does for Canadians today – they would still have full market share! Even Honda’s last very well in Canadian conditions now, and we cannot forget the “screwing” we took from our “friends” south of our borders. Even Volvo’s, the 4-banger ones made in Sweden outlasted all U.S. designs. Too much razzamatazz, not enough practical, high quality engineering for durability, reliability, and longevity. Asians, Swedes, both have so kicked your automotive ass! (China next?)

    She’s also wearing heels in the first picture. It makes a difference.

    Um, it is the same grill. The car could easily have been painted and different wheels added. Why is everyone trying to nitpick two great pictures? same trim, too, so how are some coming up with a difference?

    wow, look how much smaller the woman is. Looks like she lost at least 30cms.

    Out of the three of them the car has definitely held up best….

    Hey, maybe it’s not the same woman!
