So my 90 Celica All Trac has some issues with the under body and rust. I was thinking about parting it out and using the money to import a 93 RC but am not sure I would make enough to get the whole process to go through the whole import process. Any ideas would be great.

cant import to the USA legally unless they're 25yrs old. you'd have to wait a few more years to get an ST185. try these guys, they import stuff legally: https://www.facebook.com/groups/349029141880219

Just realized you're in Austin, MN. I know a shop there that does great bodywork for fairly cheap. He does mostly american cars but he's a great welder/fabricator. Give him a ring. http://mowercountycustom.com/ - 507-481-0426 - tell him Charles with the Grey Celica gave you his info.

If the car was sold here, doesn't that rule not apply? Thought it only mattered on chassis that were never sold here.

Got the guy from MCC to look at the car and he said its fixable, he said between 6 and 8 hundred dollars depending on how deep he goes.
