Does anyone have any information on converting imported Celica's so that they are legal in the states??? websites would be nice. Thanks

Good luck. Theres been a lot of talk and speculation but very little action on this subject. It is possible. To do it legally will be expensive and time consuming.

could always buy a US celica, then buy a JDM clip, and convert the LHD to RHD

isn't that the 15yr old law? Isn't ours like 30 years or something?

In Canada you can legally import a car that is 15 years or older without modification

Yes, that's the 30 year law here (which is still only used in certain states). I'm not totally sure that applies to imports though, only classic cars. It just means you don't have to have the car inspected, basically.

Or import a newer car that passes the canadian crash tests specifications and some other minor points. Cars older than 15 years don't need to follow those rules.

there is a classic car law in pa as long as its out of production it can be 13 years old but im not sure how this applys to the importing... prob has nothing to do with it..
i want to do this legally. there are certian crash tests it has to pass and i know that most cars that you import take up to 6 months cuz to the frame reinforcements being on the opposite side... i wonder how cars made it on that list??? was its the number of ppl that called and asked why they werent on the list and finally they said the heck with it and just did the crash test or what (is so lets raise he**) this is somthing that i plan on looking into more so in the future but thanks for you time....
buying a gt-four and converting a all-trac to rhd... couldnt i just use a gt-s frame??? i have seen gt-fours in the us but i highly doubt they are street legal.
this is somthing that i have thought about but not sure how its works... all tracs are so scarous to come by i'd hate to chop one up!!
