Euro grv import to SoCal

Hi there,
I am going to be moving to LA at the end of the year, and will be looking to bring my 69 gtv with me (canadian/euro version, not USA version).
Does anyone have any tips about importing a non homologated vehicle? Any pitfalls that i need to be aware of?
The car was originally sold in Canada and i have had it registered in Canada in my name, the car is currently registered in France (in my name).

Since your car is over 25 years old, there shouldn't be any issues at all at the Federal level. You'll have to fill out some paperwork, but that should be it. I don't know what the state will require, however.

Your 69 is smog exempt here in California. My guess is that they will want to see the car to verify the VIN stamp. I don't expect there will be any problems.
