Interesting car related petition I found today regarding the current 25 year rule on importing foreign cars.

Also another article going a little more in depth on how the ban works

In mere milliseconds, you can download or view content from all over the world. In fact, the very words you’re seeing on your screen may have traveled thousands of miles to get to you. This presents a problem, because with a couple of clicks you can watch video of an E46-chassis BMW M3 CSL’* haunting intake noise. But you’ll have to wait decades to own a CSL here in the United States.

It used to be that you could go and buy anything you wanted and bring it home. You could import a non-conforming car only once—so the big caveat was “choose wisely.”

That personal exemption was repealed in 1988. Now, if you want to import a car that wasn’t federalized, the car has to be 25 years old. That’* a long time to wait—especially if you’re interested in cars that were sold only in places where the climate encourages rust. So great, you can wait half your adult life for a car that’ll be destroyed by the time you can have it?
