[DML] HELP! (Import from Canada)


I just "re-imported" VIN 4045 back into the US from Canada.  I have 
to go to customs on Monday for the import paperwork.  Does anybody 
have anything that I can get that shows that this car was made for 
import into the US and meets all Federal standards of the time?  I 
have the orginal window sticker that shows port of entry, orginal 
sales reciept from a US dealer (no duty that way), plus other 
official paperwork.  I just want to make sure that these guy's don't 
give me the bueraucratic runaround, and that I have the answers they 
need when I get down to the docks, literally I have to go down to 
the docks for the inspection.  I need to present the car, and have 
them inspect it.  Luckily the guy I talked to today will be on 
vacation next week, so I may get someone more understanding and not 
so anal.

When I came in from Canada, the guy just sort of waved me through 
after checking my creds.

BTW the car runs great but has the typical electrical issues of too 
much current drain with the AC on and headlights on. 

John H., do you have black powder coated alternators, 140 AMP?  

I'm not buying any parts until I can get it registered, so there may 
be an absolutley perfect car parted out, I don't want to but may 
have to.  In my opionion, it's better than my other D. Hey maybe a 
body and engine swap!

Also has AC issues, which I think are in the dash, I don't look 
forward to diving into that.  But otherwise, it ran for 11 hours 
straight yesterday and was smooth as silk.  Lot's of power in 
reserve, and no problems at all.  Other than the mothball smell.  
The PO stored it with two full trays of mothballs inside the car, 
and what looks like 4 trays around the car.



P.S. Is there a way to spell check in this forum?
