It is ironic and maybe not so ironic that Sonia/John would make the first comment in that section at the bottom of the article.

I am not sure what to say, it appears to be proper, I have some questions over interpretations of certain words but I will need to make a written request for a ruling and do not have time to do so right now as I have no pending cases on this issue. Fines seem to be minor, relatively speaking so some may risk it although for permanent importations it is best to comply to not run afoul of laws in two countries.

Americans can only temporarily import a qualified vehicle into Canada.

Until they become permanent residents of Canada, and they can reverse the process, to remove the vehicle.

I'm a little confused. Does this even apply to people with TIPs? Or just when you want to nationalize the car?

It may apply to both. definitely seems to apply to people that nationalize but what about someone who drives down without the intention of staying long term and now their Datsun B210 will not make it back?

I guess that is when he buys a Mexican plated vehicle capable of towing another vehicle back north. Trailer hitch and towbar or dolly required.
Maybe that is a new business opportunity for someone: Taking out the trashed vehicles.

I will buy those old USA Datsun's 210's, 310's, 510's or Toyota Corolla's, Corona's, and Celica's.  Anybody have those old Mazda's with the rotory engine?

So playaboy, you would 'imitate' the armada of older cars being towed, seen within the southern US headed south to the Mexican border, driven by Mexican Nationals with intent to sell for profit SOB.....except you would be the gringo Permanente within Mexico headed NORTH to do the same NOB?  Never thought I would see the day.....

BTW.... owned one of those 310's in the 70s until someone in a Mach 1 Mustang decided to T-bone me one day.

Importing a US registered vehicle permanent or temporary Empty Sell me your 60's and 70's Datsun's and Toyota's

Post by Playaboy on Mon Jan 19, 2015 6:51 am

Rick, I have been buying cars and taking them north for over a year.  You have too.  We aren't doing this for charity.  I guess we are the first Admirals of the armada north.

My longtime Mexican friends can't believe I am doing this. It makes them laugh (there is a little ethnic humor included).

I learned to drive a manual tranny in a 73 Celica  ST, my dad had one of the early Celica Supra's, I owned an 80 Corona hatchback, I had an Mazda RX3 with the rotary engine.  My girlfriend at the time (the 70's) had a Datsun 1600 roaster and a 510.  

Spencer, I loved those early Celica's I saw in La Jolla.

I have my eyes on a 88 Corolla with less than 100,000 miles.  I would love to get my hands on that one.

I will buy most early Japanese cars I can find for the right price.

Old Datsun 510's will fetch a good price NOB. These cars are excellent for tricking out. Finding them without rust is the hard part.

Here is my '74 GT. Unfortunately, it looks like she will need to stay NOB for a while... :(

Importing a US registered vehicle permanent or temporary Targa011

Nice GT.  Too bad you can't bring it down here.  Here is a pic of my '73 510 - it's "tricked out" just a little bit!!.  Pic taken at the Targa Newfoundland Rally in 2006, me driving and one of my sons as co-driver.

"Latin American" spec. versions of the 510's were manufactured here in Mexico under license to Nissan at the time so that is why you still see a few of them on the roads here.  Mexico produced only 2 versions, the "wagon" similar to the NOB versions and a 4-door sedan with solid rear axle instead of the IRS versions we got NOB. The IRS versions of the 2-door and 4-door cars were one of the favourites for modification at the time and saw heavy use in circuit racing and rallying in their era.

I see lots of old cars on the roads in Mexico.  I know the legal way to import into Mexico, now I have to learn the legal way to import into the USA

@ Ezzie, nice 510. Do you have that SOB?
Ya, the trailer is filling up fast. There is still a small chance I will be able to fit her but right now, I'm about two feet short of being able too. She is pretty tricked out as well (at least by 1974 standards). If you are familiar with Celica's, to start, she has a newly rebuilt 18RG. She is 99% factory specs/ period correct.
So is there a market for me to find a first Gen Celica SOB?
@DaveP, sorry for the thread jack #carguys...

I am hoping there is a classic car exemption. Cars over a certain age kind of thing. I will speak with an agent at the border the next time I go north. They know the ropes.

I don't think you will find many old Toyota's south of the border but there are Datsun's.
