Re: Car Can't Be Titled In US?

After a car reaches 25 years old though it becomes "exempt" and can be brought in, but it will still cost a fair amount to get it here and get it legal.

Ironically the Mitsubishi GTO (same as the 3000GT and Stealth) cannot be legally brought to the US. Well now the 1991 models can be because they are at the 25 year mark.
Sorry I forgot to mention the kind of car it is. It is a 2008 Buick Lucerne CXL. It has 55k miles on it. I was told it had water damage, but it still runs fine. Didn't figure water damage would prevent it from being titlable in the US.
