Good accurate info... get the VIN, contact the manufacture, they will fax you a letter saying the vehicle meets all DOT regulations. Then fax that to the EPA, they will also fax you a letter saying the car meets all federal catalyst and emissions regs. Then go get the vehicle and bring it to the border. A customs agent may inspect it a bit, check the VIN and fill out some paper work for ya. Make sure you have the bill of sale and the Canadian registration that will be signed over to you once the vehicle is sold. If you are using the car for parts only, you do not have to import it. I have done both, one from B.C. and one from Alberta, pretty simple process.
