Yes the American's a just starting to do what we've been doing for years. There are many Americans who are excited to see their muscle cars spread throughout the world, and then still quite a few that get angry that their classics are leaving their shores, and more often than not being completely butchered by swapping the steering to RHD...
The one thing that does amaze them is the prices we pay down here but when you factor in currency conversion, shipping, draconian import duties and taxes it really does add up.
That's why their asking so much for the Aussie stuff over there. Not because it really is worth that much, but to cover all the costs of getting them over there. The Americans are very lazy and reluctant to import cars from overseas themselves...
