just a thought take a look at any car and all of the things that say D.O.T. approved well on the car you are importing to get it licenced in the u.s. every thing has to be D.O.T. approved down to the tail lights. that could be one hoop to jump also im not sure on this one but the emissions might be diffrent but to just get it here there is companys that will ship the car for you try searching around online....... I know when my uncle moved here from england he brought a bmw that was a classic and he can not drive it on the roads it just sits in his gradge and collects dust...... also maybe talk to moto rx they might be able to help you. good luck let me know if you figure out how to do it (i want a right hand drive hard body)

I wonder what would happen if you lied and said it was a (U.S. version of the) Nissan Pulsar.
I have thought about this many times. As dumb as most of the cops around here are, they would probably never know the difference.

ive driven RHD vehicles when i worked at the post office, its a real pain in the butt in the Americas.

theres a guy up here in Alaska that has a legal Pulsar GTI-R, another guy has a legal Escort cosworth too.

Up late bored reading threads

Couldnt you lets say if you bought a nx2000 or any odd ball nissan from the same year as the GTI-R so cop/ins./smog station wouldnt recognize, and maybe even change some lables around and use that info to drive the GTI-R around. Mean while park the usdm vehicle while your playing it off as the Pulsar.If you wrecked it or hit somebody your probably screwed, but if you got pulled over or something you would pass on thru inspection. Just a thought...
