Hello. Guys. I'm shin live in Japan. I have a dream. I would like to cross the US with Japan's mini truck (kei truck). I'm reading various threads here. It is very helpful. Thank you. However, I have something I can not understand about the 25-year rule, so please let me know. I'm at a loss as to the following two assumptions. - We export kei trucks aged 25 and over from Japan and receive them in the USA. - Buy a kei truck over the age of 25 that is sold in the US. Considering the labor of exporting, I think that it is better to bought it locally (USA). ---------- The following is a question. - kei truck older than 25 years old knew that examinations of EPA and DOT will be exempted. Can kei trucks over 25 years old register as "passenger cars" and run on the public road? - Can we register as a privateer without consigning to a Registered Importer (RI) if it is a car over 25 years old? - I learned that regulations differ depending on the state. Is the state that can not run on the public road at all in California? Are there other states that can not run on public roads other than that? Interstate highways and highways do not have to run. In that case I am planning to run local load. I saw it here. http://www.iihs.org/iihs/topics/laws/minitrucks There are 21 states that are restricted by the ordinance. Other state were "no law" or "no state law". ”no law" ="There is no law" = "There is no restriction by law" = "Does public road driving possible" mean? Or does it mean "can not drive on public roads"? - Is it possible for me, a Japanese citizen, to register a vehicle? please tell me! Thank you and best, shin.
