Vehicle Importation: What You Can & Cannot Have

by Michael Chandler

In America you can say pretty much anything, own firearms to your heart’s content, worship what and how you like, and do a whole bunch of other stuff.  However, there are some things you can’t do: yell fire in a crowded building, murder drifters, and have certain cars.

America’s 25 year import law basically says if it’s older than 25 years you can bring it in to the country without much song or dance, but if you wanted something younger (let’s say 17 years old) you’d have to jump through a lot of hoops and still might not be able to get it in the country.  In doing research for something else I cam across a list of vehicles YOU CAN import!  Makes it a whole lot easier when you have a list to refer to.  Some of the vehicles are:

  • 2003 Audi RS6 sedan and wagon (Avant if you want to get fancy)
  • R33 Skyline GT-Rs and GT-S’s
  • 1994-1995 Ford Escort RS Cosworth
  • 1987-1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.6 16v
  • 00-01 Audi RS4
  • Alpina B12
  • 02-07 Smart ForTwo
  • Early 90’s MB G-Wagen
  • 2000 East Lancs Lolyne Double Decker Bus(!)

 

So it’s safe to say you can still get some awesome cars younger than twenty-five.  However, the list (which can be found here) includes some random cars that would be…  Well, just take a look and see for yourself:

  • 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
  • 1994-1999 Cadillac DeVille
  • 2007 Dodge Durango
  • 1993 Chrysler Town & Country
  • 1993 Ford Mustang
  • 1998 Jeep Wrangler
  • 1992 Lincoln Mark VII
  • 1996 Plymouth Voyager
  • 1995-1998 Toyota Avalon

Want to buy a race car?

CAMautoMag Acura RSX for sale

Well if you do, then good news! Randy Gibb is selling his RSX Type-S! We’re happy that Randy is moving on to a new chassis, but this is also a sad day for us because the #29 Mad Dog Cycles RSX was the first honest to God race car to sport some CAMautoMag decals.  But enough of that, lets get down to some details:

It’s a 2004, but it’s been bodied as a 05-06

It’s sporting a K24 instead of a K20

Moton coilovers at all 4 corners

Stoptech brakes hiding behind Enkei RPF1’s

Full cage

Sparco Evo seat

And a bunch of other race car goodies that Randy can tell you about.  It’s a Grand-Am/Koni Challenge car, and it can be yours!

New site design!

by Trent

CAMautoMag old site designFirst off, let me say Thank you! CAMautoMag is living the dream, we are sharing our passion of cars and we couldn’t do it without you. This site design has been in the works for some time now, but it is finally ready to go.

Welcome to CAMautoMag version 2.0! We’ve maintained this original design since we first launched this site in May of 2010. We’ve done minor updates to it over the course of the year, but nothing dramatic, this time is different. We are focusing much more on photos and videos now, and we wanted the new site design to reflect that. With the new site design, we are also changing the logo up a bit, we will be operating as CAMautoMag instead of CAM Auto Magazine or CAM or another variation on that, this is to help unify our brand and make it easier to find us on the web.

Also with a new site, we’ve updated our ‘About Us’ page, and changed it to ‘The Staff’ so you can get better acquainted with who we are and our background in cars. Check it out.

And since we’re talking about new things, we’ve added a few events to our upcoming schedule.

August 10 – Wide Open Wednesday at Miller Motorsports Park
August 20 – Wekfest Chicago, IL
August 20-21 – MPRA/LapBattle.Com Time Attack at Miller Motorsports Park
August 27-28 – Redline Time Attack Series at Miller Motorsports Park [canceled]
September 3 – Pace Days

Feel free to browse around the site and let us know what you like and dislike. Feel free to comment or email me at tbray [at] camautomag.com
