MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - anyone think a RV8 would sell in the US?
|I have a few containers coming over from England and I have a little room left. I was thinking about buying a RV8 and sell it when I get it here as a "well restored MGB". It would have to be sold for at least $20K to cover my costs. does anyone know if this is to much or not. I have spent at least $18K on my MGBV8.|
See you all in Townsend
I'm sure that it would generate interest, but is it licensable in the States?
See you on the Dragon!
|You cannot import an RV8 until it is 25 years old.|
We missed ya at the last V8 Meet, so looking forward to Townsend.
I say put some MGB numbers on it from a wrecked one, who would know the dif?! :)
|Sorry - I'm gonna have the first. :-)|
(Legal one, that is).
|You can always re-assemble one here and title it as an assembled car. That's basically what Scott Miller in Ohio did.|
|evan, have worked with another board member about bring 2 or more of them over, i am not into LR's like you but i have imported over 50 minis and other cars in the last 5 years. they can be had for less than 1/2 of the uk cost on the daily auctions in japan, as almost 3/4 of them produced ended up in the JDM this is a better route to go. how much room do you have in the container? i have my bgt-v8 waiting to be shipped and would like to talk to about it as i do not really want to do roro with it. if you would please pm me or you can call me at 612-267-5815, jim|
