Pretty funny.
The 5th pic shows no trim tag on the firewall.

Is the GM doc also a fake?  I know squat about GM Canada docs.

I guess anything can be faked but without seeing the original GM docs hard to say. If one is interested it is easy to call GM Canada and get another original. Just costs about $50 or so. I would never buy a Canada car without calling GM and getting the docs confirmed with another original. So much fake stuff and fake stories these days it makes the hobby tough. Hard to believe most stories these days without bullet proof info.

Document looks real. You can see the embossed stamp on the VIN if you look close.

   I did see the seal Kurt. But it is not initialed by George and the colors are off. The printing is smudgy not sharp. Mine is from 2004 which obviously is a bit different. But any from the last few years the blue and red are very distinctive and they are all signed/initialed by George. Unless he stopped doing that ?

It's such a bad picture it's hard to tell on colors and focus. Only thing I see missing is George's signature.

I think you can just email George and ask if that's his.
