Looking to purchase a right hand drive vehicle ASAP. Need heat and air. Must be in good operating condition. No junkers or rust buckets, please. The closer to Louisiana, the better.

Or go to Japan/Europe and buy one straight from the source.

Just curious, for what purpose? Are you looking for a specific car, or want a RHD car, just for kicks?

He/she doesn't have to go far. He can find them in Caribbean countries too. (Jamaica, Trinidad, Aruba, Bahamas etc). He/she will save on shipping.


There's always Ebay, locally..

I believe I read somewhere that you can buy a new RHD vehicle from Subaru. Apparently they build and sell them for mail delivery contractors. Perhaps you can find out more at a Subaru dealership.

Well, even before I posted this, I looked for more info. It appears that 1999 was the last year they did this. I didn't realize it was that long ago. That might help you in your search, though.

There's a niche dealer on one of the Mercedes forums who, I think, sometimes imports/finds Japanese-spec MBs for sale here in the US. They tend to be the 1980's models such as the W126 model, as that was really the last time grey-market imports of German marquees were really popular.

There's also the R34, R33, etc. generations of the Skyline GTR which was never officially sold by Nissan in the US but a few die-hard fans did import them from Japan.
