RE: collectability Euro Vs US spec.

 # So what's the deal with importing a car for personal use from abroad to
 # the US these days?
 # I heard they stopped that one-time exemption thing a while back. Does
 # that mean it's now basically impossible or totally uneconomic?
 # I'd love to own an old UrQ, but the US prices turn me off, when I can
 # get a decent '86 944 Turbo for around $8K, it's hard to justify more
 # than that for an 83 UrQ.  Of course, ideally I'd own them both :-).
... it is still possible.  You need to have the car adapted to meet the
US rules.  It is easiest to import cars from Canada.  Check out the US
DOT website for all the rules (www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/import)
