    It's not so much that it is RHD but the age. Canada allows 15 year old vehicle in without having to meet CVMSS standards, the us oly does the equivalent after 25 years (waive EPA / DOT standards)

    You CAN still import it as an off road vehicle like for pure offroading or use on private property (like a mine) but CANNOT get tags for it or use on public roads - UNTIL it is inspected and passes the current safety and emissions tests. Plan on spending $15k for that at least...
