Anyone know if it would be possible to bring this car in from the States? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Lamborghini-/271170390230?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item3f2303c8d6

Looks like a very nice example would love to be able to bring something like this in.

Putting aside the fact that the actual car wasn't available, is it worth looking at trying to import cars of this age in LHD? or is the process of bringing one in going to leave me a bitter young man? :)

It's relatively easy if they are old enough to qualify for importation as LHD. Thinks it's 25 years now?

OK – if you want a car for yourself then go for it. Just do your homework first and even go over there to check it out. Early classic cars can be rego’ed LHD of course and importing them is not very difficult or expensive. Tax can hurt a little if the final value of the car gets up there. You may even pay LCT if it is an expensive car.

But if you are looking at doing it to make money, unfortunately that ship has sailed. Every man and his dog are bringing in Yank tanks to turn over and make a quick buck. Unless it’s something rare and unique the market is just not there at the moment. Even then you could sit on a car for a long time before a buyer comes along.

But if you are looking at it for a keeper then it can be a rewarding experience. There are a lot of people who can help you with advice and information.

Cut off is Jan 1989......

25 year rule is for Rego in Vic, not 100% with other states.

A MY1988 car can be rego'ed in Vic with Club Rego LHD.  *EDIT* Or can be rego'ed on FULL rego LHD if over 30 years old so up to 1983 at this stage.

January 1989 date is cut off for RAWS. Anything post that has to be done by a RAWS approved workshop.

I thought the club reg thing was national now? In any case you can see it's being abused on a massive scale by people using historic reg cars as daily drivers. I can't see how it won't be pulled or at the very least made more restrictive.

I see guys commuting to work in old Toyotas and BMW's on a regular basis.
