Living just across the river from Canada has its advantages: we can watch Hockey Night in Canada; we can listen to Canadian radio; and every once in a while a 1984-87 Hyundai Pony will make a trip across the bridge and park itself on one of our streets. Like this one seen a few weeks ago on Pine Avenue in The Falls. The Pony, South Korea’s own first mass-produced car, came quite early on in Hyundai’s export history to North America, but it never was sold in the U.S. because it didn’t meet our emissions standards. I don’t believe we missed all that much. Some markets even got a nifty pickup version (below).
