74 GTV 76 Alfetta GT
Interesting car. Not affiliated with sale.
Right! Check out the license plates. It appears that it isn't registered here.I can't imagine how you throw that one past the Calif DMV, but I guess there are states that will accept it.
I suspect the phrase in the CL ad: "Imported by military Veteran" is shorthand for "the seller just rolled it onto the military transport bringing the rest of his household goods back to the States and US Customs doesn't know this thing is in the country".Del said:I suspect Washington state might accept it, as it is more than 25 years old, pretty much anything goes, and as we no longer have smog or safety checks.
Yeah the trim is original.The ad states "the car is all original." Are those polka-dot seats original?
Interesting, there are two of these for sale in the states at the same time: 1979 Alfa Romeo Sprint great every day driver! | eBay
And there may be such an exemption in California for a Department of State individual, or military serviceman who brings in his/her personal vehicle. But selling it to someone else, and passing along that exemption, is the issue.Interestingly, most states have exceptions for cars brought back by Department of State individuals, or military servicemen. Not sure how much of an exemption they are are allowed, but it's better than "nope".
Some pictures showing Spanish (Madrid) plates on front and rearThe feds might let State Dept folks and foreign dignitaries etc bring in special stuff, but I don't think most states had provisions for it. Again, smog checking is all-encompassing in Calif for 1976 and later with very few exceptions. If they don't have it in the database you can't smog it.
He mighta brought it in, but it has what, Portuguese papers?
In the 80s and 90s, the US got 115 spiders through 95, Milanos, GTV6s, 164s. That's it. We suffered, and still do.
