    Importing a car from the USA to the UK Empty Importing a car from the USA to the UK

    Well i finally found my MG that i paid for twice, Importing a car from the USA to the UK 16779677 Its on the water Importing a car from the USA to the UK 3318427985 
    The ship is called the APL Norway 036
    Its in container LAX UK 130869, It set sail on 22,11,13. It lands in the UK 1,1,14 Importing a car from the USA to the UK 294053457 
    I dont think i have to pay import duty because its an historic vehicle,
    but at the most it will be 5% Importing a car from the USA to the UK 3481995571  Then i will get a number to get it out of the import shed after showing all documents,
    I remember walking in to the shed to pick up the Mercedes, Deep joy Importing a car from the USA to the UK 4134441833 
    You put a lot of faith and trust and money and time in to gamble and thats the pay off when you get in it and it fires up and drive home on a lovely summers day, But it will be winter with this one and i doubt the thing has a Heater Weather But it will be a good feeling,
    The MG started life in the early 50' then it went to California so the poor bugger will be thinking WTF on the way home, I may take the transporter if its too blady cold for playing out, Transport

    Of course Importing a car from the USA to the UK 1483819851  It started life in the UK, I wouldnt have bothered with it otherwise,
    Some cars you can get away with LHD but the price difference between the two is big on the little stuff, so not worth it,
    I wish i knew what the next big money spinner was, but i dont Importing a car from the USA to the UK 3913804730  But i know it isnt anything that drinks petrol.
    Saying that the merc sold for double what i payed, but its gone up £20k since i sold it, Importing a car from the USA to the UK 2681204924
