Well to all who has been following this thread and to directly to the seller Larry,I know what a classic this van is.That is totally why I was interested in this van in the first place.I have been around the Astro's for a long time.
While both of us ,Larry and myself,learned what it would take to get this van legally imported to the US,I want to clearly say much to Larry's credit he has been completely honest and straight with me.
What I posted is what I found on the links posted and those are from the US customs.All I have done here is honestly post what I have learned and to share the same with the membership of this site.If you click on the customs link,you will see the statement about seizing or destroying the van.
I did not know what it would take to get a van imported when I started to look at making this GREAT deal.From the heart Larry,I really mean it is a great deal,No kidding.In fact I have hoped to purchase the van to replace my 1994 LT for a daily driver.Fix what it needed and be sure it was all good.I still hope to make it workout.
Lastly-I know full well that all Larry wants it to get his $600.00 out of the van.I also know given that price it shouldn't take anything away from Larry to get it across the border.All I am asking and sharing with you all is exactly what it would cost.Larry has told me the Cat installed is about $150.00.and all I am asking Larry to do is be the good guy he has been to look into what it cost beyond the Cat to make it into a legal import.Not now or ever lower the price or incur costs to Larry.I am also clearly stating that if Larry wants to check out with Canadian Tire about the import inspection and what costs would be associated with that or if he decides this is way too much B.S. for both of us to deal with because of US customs.If the second case is his decision,it would be a hard hit,but I would have to agree.
We are both Astro owner's gentleman trying to work out details of this import and I am sharing the same on the forum.
Either way Larry,you have my upmost respect for what you have done so far,
