Ok, I'm sorry to hit this group again for a questions I've asked before.
Thank you all for your answers, but I received many different ones and I am
not completely confused. I'm interested in purchasing a 1974 (early model)
MG B Roadster. The car is currently located in England and is European
spec. I checked with the personal property office over here on the base
where I am currently working. They told me 25 years no matter what. "If
the car is over 25 years you'll have no problems bringing it back to the
states." Because I though it was too good to be true, I asked the question
using different words. I received the same answer using the same words.
Finally, just to be absolutely sure, I asked, "Is that for both Emissions
AND Safety or just Safety." I was told "Both."
Is this true, or does this person not know what he is talking about? I will
be moving to probably either NY, VA, FL, SC, or NC when I return to the
states. Does each state vary that much over emissions (besides CA)? Help
please. I need to act soon to purchase this car, but I can't purchase it
until I'm sure I can get it back into the states. Thanks again.
