I was told that insurance companies up here have mixed feelings about
airbags. Bags are very expensive to replace after a collision, and there's
often collateral damage when the bags break windshields and damage
interiors, plus they cause a lot of minor (and sometimes not so minor)
injuries when they deploy. All that's very expensive for the insurance
companies.

Up here there are neither rewards for having airbags nor penalties for
disabling them.

Can I buy a new Honda in Canada,
have the bombs removed, even get a few
bucks for them, and drive the car legally
for registration in California?

Or are prices higher in Canada for whatever reason,
or other complication?

In a word. NO! While it is not illegal to remove the bombs in Canada, it is
in the US, I believe, and I am sure that California, based on that state's
past record, will not register such a modified car....I would check the laws
in Ca and the Feds before doing such.
