It is very clear answer - so I'am getting wiser on the matter.
Still I can be a bit supprised. When we in Europe on TV see, what Bud Carrington and Overhaul is getting along with, totally rebuilding a standardcar to a "one of a kind" .It is oddly, that a new crashtested car has a problem with the authorities, when imported my a private person.
For your information:
Here in Denmark a carfactory also have to get a generel approval of a new model to have the licence to sell the cars without every single car has to go to authorized inspections, but when you as a private person import a car - or bring it back home, if you have lived abroad, you can have a single car approval, and the danish inspectors are seldom though on car, approved of in other "nice" continents as f.e. Australia or US.
Old cars don't even come close to the demands of the danish authorities of today, but still they can get their numberplates, if the are original and fullfill some basic demands on breakingcability and lights.
My old russian cars are the only one's in the country of there kind, and the inspector hade never seen one before, but they got a thumbs up
