These are cool. If I was rich I'd try to bring one to the US.I have a feeling it would NEVER pass safety standards and would not be street legal. Its like a glorified golf cart. Looks fun though.

You don't have to be rich for them ;) Later ones from the 80ies are sometimes to find at eBay for less than 500 Pounds, older ones costs more. As I wrote before, /vehicle.php?id=89353 , my brother-in-law want's to have one for joke. I don't know, how it's in the USA, but isn't the import of classic cars less restricted? In Germany it has to be older than from 1988 or 1989, as he had found out. A classic one from the 70ies is not a big problem at all.

In the US it has to be at least 25 years old but the cost of shipment and then paperwork will be very expensive.Plus, a 3-wheeled car will likely be considered unacceptable for US roads since the safety standards are very strict.In Asian countries they have 3-wheeled bicycles/tuk-tuks and low-power mopeds all over the roads.You cant drive that on public roadways here. Same for golf-carts.
It will probably cost close to $10,000 to legally import one and then try to go through hassles of trying to register one with the DMV.Most people feel its absolutely not worth it.I like small, unusual cars but I'm also a realist and know its not really feasable to try to get one.

Naah, it's not that expensive. Last December my brother-in-law had bought a Porsche 912 (this rare US-only model from 1976 with the 914-engine, only 2000 were built) in California. The transport across the continent to North Carolina on a train and the shipping in a container from the East Coast to Rotterdam/NL had cost 1100 € - totally, incl.paperwork, but without insurance (would have been too expensive for the value). Plus a bit European import tax and some technical changes for getting the German registration, that was all.

My wife is from the Philippines (Moved here a few months ago to marry me) and she would one day like to import a Jeepney from her home country to the states as a collectible.we just attended the famous Woodward Dream Cruise this month and she thought it would be cool to drive around in the show with the only philippine jeepney in America.I highly doubt she could get one here.We have better luck of bringing over one of the numerous box-type Lancers than an emissions-unfriendly Jeepney. Not to mention we have no place to store one.

@cko: I took this picture of a Jeepney here in Virginia (registered and insured) Jeepneys are easy to get here as they only have to be 25 years old or older and to be registered only have to meet equipment regulations for the year they were built. The owner of this one said that it cost him less that 2000 dollars to get this shipped here and all of the paperwork done to register it.
