Hey, Ask a postal worker what it is like to drive a right hand drive vehicle in the US :). Also remember that the US has different safety requirements for cars than Europe and that to be able to register and drive a car designed for the UK market in the US, you may need to make some upgrade to the vehicle. Depending on what state, e.g. California or Massachusetts, you may need to do some emissions work. -- Jeremy Visit my 1986 Saab 900T & me at: "DervMan" <> wrote in message news:4575b803$0$27109$ > "solarsell" <> wrote in message > news:6Cidh.1957$QD3.1711nospamny01... >> I'm thinking of importing a Toyota Townace 5-spd, diesel from GB to the >> US.
