Generally speaking though our dollar is around about the same as the Canuck dollar. One of ours buys about the same amount of rubbish as one of yours, perhaps we get less food colourants, GM and preservatives for our dollar. The Holden factory also makes the V6 engines which are in the latest crop of Saabs. Some classic older Australian muscle cars pull huge sums of money these days. A Ford XY HO Phase III, circa 1970 sells for around A$200,000 these days if you can find one for sale. http://members.iinet.net.au/~campbell1/fgt.htm#XY%20GT%20and%20GT%20HO%20Phase%20III Thanks to the Max Max movies our stock of XA/XB Fords is steadily diminishing as they get imported into the US. At least they are going into the hands of enthusiasts who will preserve them in all likelihood.
