Here is a writeup that I found to have a lot of useful information, maybe you will too:
Importing a Vehicle from Canada
On 2 wheels
That is an amazing link! I am looking at doing this importation of cars in a little bit and there were a few things in that page that i didn't even know.
On 2 wheels
Anyone else have any comment on this issue? Supra's are rare as hell in Canada so there must be people looking at importing!
www.riv.ca tells you everything you need to know.
I've done it more than once.
The title MUST be left at US customs for 3 days before the car can leave the country, the original not a copy. Which can be a pain if you don't live near the border.
You don't pay anything on the US side, but back in canada you'll have to pay 7% GST, 6.1% if a non-US built car, ~$100 A/C tax, $180 for the canadian compliance inspection (usually just adding daytime running lights and baby harness bolt), plus safety, emissions, provincial tax & plates. Budget to add ~25% to the sticker price of the car, plus currency conversion of course.
It's a big PITA, but not rocket science.
If anyone has specific Q's just post and I'll try to help.
hah and here i was thinking i had found GREAT deals for a supra in the US... man 25% brings it almost to the same price as local SUpras... except i like the moded and non winterized supras of US better

Does anyone know any good shipping company that I should use when I am importing my Supra , I just sold my FD and am defiantly in the market in shipping up a supra . Thanks guys.
Are you gonna rebuild the car to be a driver or just stripping it?
