Shipping a new S10 to America?

This is just a hypothetical question, as I could never afford to do this, but does anyone have any idea of what it would cost to purchase one of the new S10s overseas, and then have it shipped back over here to the U.S.?

It wouldn't be just a shipping cost you'd have to contend with . The vehicles built overseas aren't built to the U.S. safety and emission standards unless they are being built for export to the U.S. ( i.e.- Honda Fit's ) so all that would have to be modified to conform ! Unless you're a very wealthy individual , I not sure you would want to try to do that ? I know you presented this as a hypothetical question so I hope my answer can help ?
