  • 15 Year Law Nonsense...

    The next person to post up anything regarding the 15 year rule being changed without any supporting evidence... will be banned (or something like that, I'm not too sure yet).

    Nobody cares that the homeless guy who begs for change outside of your local DMV/MTO/etc told you that Transport Canada is changing the laws. The same applies to your best friend, importer, used engine dealer, customs broker, shop owner, etc..

    Unless you can provide proof - such as a notice from Transport Canada, or a letter from Lawrence Cannon (Minister of Transport) written in blood and stapled to a body part hand delivered by Mrs. Stronach - don't bother posting about it.

    Harsh? Yes.
    Necessary? Absolutely.
    Race. Win. Live.

        that shouldnt be included IMHO. cuz there are legal ways of doing it and there are people that have/had imported less than 15 yr old cars for track use. if someone is genuinely interested in bringing one in for that purpose then all the luck to him. its really not that hard.

                  iirc,
                  it is to keep people buying newer cars, and not just bringing in cheap vehicles.

                  it has to do with the economy

                  do not quote me 100% on this, its just what i have heard.

                  p.s.
                  sorry if this post is a no-no

                    lol....

                    it has NOTHING to do with what you have heard

                    the 15yr rule was changed back in the late 70's- early 80's, from a 25yr rule, to allow collectors to get better quality vehicles... only now since many desireable vehicles are 15yrs or older are coming into canada... the CADA wants to close the door so they can prevent us from getting these quality vehicles and forcing us into buying over priced new vehicles, and way over priced used clunkers...

                      I can totally understand why there's a 15 year law. Say you buy a GTR for 15K at an auction and have it shipped over. How much of that money goes back into Canada? 200 bucks for a broker? Some money at customs?

                      The fatal flaw with it is a lot of people want some cars that aren't available in Canada or the US. I think it would be a smart move to have importation laws like Australia. From what I've read, you can only import cars that weren't sold new in the Australian market.

                              That's how the McLaren F1 is set up. It's a three seater with the driver seat in the center and a passenger seat behind it to either side. Very good layout.
