Has anyone bought a race car from Canada? What kind of problems with Customs , any fees or taxes?
I did. Fees were about 7.5% of purchase price in my case.
Was advised, and it applied in my case as I bought a purpose-built race car, that it is easier if it isn't a "car" with a vin plate, planning on being registered, etc. You are purchasing a piece of equipment that just happens to have the name "car" in it (think of it more like a piece of construction equipment, or a tractor, or the like).
If the car you are looking at has a vin plate, i think there are many more hoops to jump through. Thankfully my broker and shipper worked out all the details on mine. I only had to cut the check.

Those guys come over here to race all the time. Buy it while its here and problem is solved.
Thanks for the advice.
We have many friends who live in Canada. I would second the have them bring it across deal. Way easier if it is a racecar with no vin. Even if it has a vin it is easier to have them import it but can be done either wat. We actually have one friend who brings trucks down here for us to sell. He does all the import work and we swap the dash/speedos to MPH and sell them for him. Seems two wheel drive trucks don't fetch much up there
