Newby - trying to get the 85 110 into Cali
so I purchased this monster in Germany and it's waiting for export in my warehouse over there. It's a decommissioned British Army vehicle with German papers (passed TUV/Inspection there). I am assuming it is pretty original.
I have read up here and spoken with some people as well. Getting it thru customs I do not expect any issues (I have actually brought in 2 Syncros into the US before w/out any issue).
The ISSUE is to get it titled in California. And I couldn't find much up-to-date info on this here. Problem seems to be that the smog excempt for Diesel might not apply to out-of-the-country vehicles.
What's the solution? Have it titled in a different state first and title it in California (it'd be brought in as an out-of-STATE and not out-of-the-COUNTRY vehicle). A better way?
Please let me know your experience and hopefully solutions.
