Riv has a list of cars that are admissable. The gts is fine. Any thing 15 years old is fine. Srt are fine. I imported a Rt before they were allowed they did not like that. I got a letter from transport Canada saying "Please export or destroy." So I ran a dealer plate on it. Did the same on my next one. Now I have the gts so no worries. Plus all the gen 1s should be 15 years old now. I have imported a few cars no big deal. And prices are cheaper in the US.
The only reason the gen1 wasn't admissable was the seat belts. And you can't modify seat belts.
mione is a 1998 so it still falls under the RVI rules. reading up on it is scaring the crap out of me right now, and I know it shouldn't. I'm worried Customs won't let it in, or it will take forver and cost a bundle to get it to pass the RVI inspection. More-so Customs is scaring me
I've got my flight booked for a trip to Atlanta from Calgary. Leaving Thursday Sept 25th. Picking up a 1999 ACR Black w/ stripe delete. It's a straight forward process.
Find car. Pay for car. Pick car up. Fax copy of title to US side of the border crossing you are using ensuring it's at least 72 hours before you plan to cross. Show car and title to US side. Have them stamp the title. Proceed to Canadian side. Show title/bill of sale. Pay GST and $100 A/C tax. Have car entered into RIV program. Pay the RIV fee. Book appt with Crappy Tire near you. They will want DRL's maybe some child anchors in the car. French airbag labels perhaps. All minor stuff.
Don't sweat it. Just get one and bring it home.
I've got a great 3900km road trip planned for next weekend.
I went to sweetgrass montana on Satuday with a friend and picked up the Viper. Drove it home (did get pulled over because someone called the RCMP and said that there is a Viper with no plates driving. Everything was okay because I had an in transit plate)
Anyways, long story short, it's finally made it's way to my house in Canada. I got an alignment and 100 point inspection. The brakes are about 95% new and the only thing they noted is the brake fluid is a tad dirty). Now to park is for the winter unless I can get the DRL and anchor done before it's too late
