I posted this in the main forum but figured I'd get a better responce here.. Just some background info about my situation. My girlfriends parents import tracors from Japan. Their going to allow us to ship over a JDM clip for her MR2. We know someone over in Japan who will buy a 95-98 MR2 ( Gen III 3sgte motor ) at an auction and then have it sent over. Problem is can we legally send a WHOLE car over? Or will we need him to cut the car in half? If possible we'd obviously like to have the car come whole rather than just the rear half. We figure we would be able to make a little extra money off of the extra parts from the car that we didn't need. I've heard different stories on what you can and cannot do. I've heard you can't ship a whole car over, period. Then I've heard you can but it needs to be cut in half. I've also been told you have a set amount of time until the car must be destroyed. This is something I'm trying to find out as soon as possible because we want to get it on the next container if possible. If this turns out to work out fairly easy we'll end up bringing over another clip or two.
