How many are still on the road in the States and Canada today? Just a rough guess.

I was also wondering about the number remainnig on the road. I think there were originally 40,000 shipped to the states, around 10,000 per year. Could be wrong but I think this is what I read a few years back.

They are out there....i was coming home from a trip to the junkyard last weekend and came onto the highway and to my surprise i pulled RIGHT next to a white XR right from the on ramp....it shocked the hell out of me. Plus i found one sitting next to a barn back in my home town. They're getting pretty scarce though, i remember when i was a kid you'd see them a lot more often. Then again they're in their 20s now so age is catching up quick.
