    Thinking of buying one, has anyone gone through the experience of importing one into Germany?


  2. Nope, but according to what I have heard its not too hard, but you have to be careful, the best thing is to go over to the states and do everything yourself.

    Or find a respectable company to help you. I live in krefeld and there is an American Classics suupplier just down the road from me, and he does have some mighty fine metal.
  3. You might want to think of putting in a little tour of the Septic barracks in Germany. Some of the fellas have absolutely marvellous jam-jars that they could possibly be persuaded to part with. Jam-jars, I might add, that have already had any conversions done to make them eligible for German road use.

    No such thing as a classic american car.
    If you insist on wasting your money on american rubbish, there are plenty of dealers down south in areas where septics are/were based who can save you the trouble of jerry paperwork.

    They are complete shiite - compare what else you can get for the money and running costs. I even had a Mustang mk1 Grande for a brief spell before regaining my senses :oops:

    Unless of course you enjoy cr@p handling, poor build quality, tacky interiors, high running costs....etc, etc, etc

    would Steve McQueen looked as cool driving a Fiesta? would Kowalski in Vanishing Point been as iconic if he drove a Metro? would they f***. ;)

    Well I married her didn't I.

    Thanks for that though, I'll have to get myself down south.
  9. What are you prattling on about, mush? Nobody buys a classic car (whether it's Septic or not) with their eye on economy, build quality, handling, tackiness etc. Get fückin' real, buddy.

    If you know what you are after get a copy of Stars and Stripes (US military newspaper) - lots of adverts both private and dealers in there - plus importers.
