importing classic cars?
i know there is a restriction on cars older than 5 years, but is there an exception on classis cars? say older that 20 years or something? i'm asking because here in Ontario cars older than 20 years have "antique" or "collector" car status. thanks.
I'll keep this thread alive in hopes that someone has the answer. I also have a 50 year old British roadster that I would like to bring with me some day.
I have a 1954 MGTF, it would be perfect for the island.

Always liked the idea of a state sand truck with a vee snow blade! would be just the thing for Motorcycles, publico's and traffic jams

I wonder if it is to make people buy new vehicles here in stead of buying over seas and shipping.... because many cars are not even paid for in 3 or 4 years..... so the car still needs to be paid off, and then you get hit with the heavy tax..........
where as an older car you already own....you could ship and just pay the tax alone......much better than buying another here at total cost.
I was in Sosua a couple of weeks ago and saw a 1955 chevy pickup that was in decent shape.
I could tell it spend most of its life in the states...maybe you could track down the owner and find out some info.
It is usually parked in the vacant lot on Pedro Clisante near all the bars.
It is light blue in colour with aftermarket rims on it.
a few months ago a gu asked about british sports bars in the DR

now an older Vette.....that will get my attention
I am also interested in reading an answer to the original question.
BTW, last weekend they had an antique auto show in Puerto Rico.
There were many classic cars from Dominican Rep., including a limousine
(guess was 1957 Cadillac) owned by el "jefe", Trujillo.
I don't think the-roadster-factory.com has parts for older MG's
