I wonder how many will find their way over the border into the US?



 



I'm assuming you mean Jimny and aren't being mean to Mexicans?

As far as I am aware the only 2 ways to do that legally are to observe the 25 year import rule or apply for a car to get its own 12 month travel visa. Otherwise I don't think there is a legitimate way to have any gen 3 or 4 Jimny in the USA. Question, did Mexico ever get the gen3 officially imported?

It did used to be kinda possible to import newer cars as ckd, completely knocked down kits, it was a thing with the defender but it got closed down with many vehicles being crushed.

Canada now seems to be able to import JDM Gen3 so perhaps once they are "naturalised Canadians" they can come over the border for a visit.

Given the number of Gen4 accessories I have sold to the USA, I am suspicous that a couple must be there. Either crossing the border or via the Caribbean islands/Costa Rica. I realise a lot of the addresses in the USA are postal accommodation addresses and the final destination are places such as Panama but a few are residential addresses which could be friends forwarding or could have a Jimny there.

Not sure how the Canadian 'naturalisation' would apply after all there have to be citizens of the neighbouring countries who may have work or family commitments in the USA and need to drive? Possibly not emigrating just to find out though!
