You heard wrong
Chris, you did hear wrong. There is a ton of eperience and knowledge in this thread. If you are in doubt, contact one of the well know importers.Read this, its has been referenced before (search for 20592 in the site and you'll find a few mentions)
All good points. Was not trying to slag off on you, just trying to not muddy the waters for the newer members.KGH, its not me that has the questions. I have read through this thread more than once, but I'm not claiming to be any kind of expert.
I think the biggest issue is that most of the information out there comes from "peoples opinions & experience" not hard legal facts.
I have found no official site that tells you what you can and cant get away with, just a few examples of legal precedence (which rarely have direct relevance to your own individual case).
If the car is "remanufactured" your on shaky ground, but who decides what's remanufactured and whats restored? Its somewhat open to interpretation, interpretation that from what I have heard is inconsistent from one port of entry to another.
It's a minefield. That's my opinion
