RE: [DML] HELP! (Import from Canada)



Bernie:
 
Do not part out the car!!  There are plenty of people that will buy it in its current condition, including the customs problem (which you should be able to fix)  Anyway, do a carfax report and find out where the car was registered in the US.  If you can find where the car was registered and/or titled here in the US, you can prove that it was here PRIOR to going into Canada and depending on the customs agent, that should be enough proof that it's origin, PRIOR to you, was in the US.  You may need to contact the DMV where it was previously registered in the US and have them sent you a Registration Verification Letter.  Some states have them, others do not.  Most states that do not require titles for cars over 10 years have this verification letter.  I did that before with my wife's car who moved back and forth from canada and that worked.

	All,
	
	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.
	
	Thanks,
	
	Bernie
	
	P.S. Is there a way to spell check in this forum?
