The Federal rules are.
25 years and older can be brough in EPA & DOT exempt on a Federal level. However, depending on what state it's brought to, EPA regulations may have to be met for the levels of the year the car is for state EPA. Most are exempting 25 year old cars.
Mine was shipped from Italy to New York. Total cost was $3573.00 which included all fee's and insurance. It took 2 weeks to get to New York.
Mine has no US DOT or EPA certifications on it anywhere.
I had it trucked from New York to Florida to a friends house. Picked it up there, got a temporary tag and drove it home. Registered & Titled it in California. It went through a CHP level 1 inspection. This took 20 minutes, got a release from CHP, took this and all documintation to the DMV and was issued a title and registration.
