Base Stang coupe costs around US$18,000, double that because of poor exchange rate, add a few grand for shipping, add another $10-15,000 for FTE to convert to RHD. So you're looking at nearly $60,000 before any profit is taken into consideration. There are probably other hidden costs I haven't factored in. As I mentioned in another thread selling things at a loss is a great way to go broke.
On a lighter note I remember hearing somewhere (can't recall where, old age is setting in!) that GMH are having a re-think about importing Corvettes because they reckon they would have to sell them for around $200,000, maybe more, and probably no-one would buy them for that.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
