Re: Oddity of the day.....

Looks awesome but how hard would it be to get parts for that?

Like old Toyota manual window cranks and cheap seat covers? Should be easy.

I enjoyed those too. Not only does the owner favor old, unusual campers, he must favor old and unusual cameras too. Not too difficult to turn the date off in the settings function on everyone I've ever seen. Or you could just set it real quick so the ad flows and people don't think you're a liar or idiot.........hmmmm......or you could just, um, use any cell phone made in the last 10 years.

Anyway, tis a neat but odd camper and it looks like he probably cleaned up on the deal. Sold for $10,150

Re: Oddity of the day.....

Slight change of topic but the ad brought up something I've looked into recently. He mentions that it was brought in legally under the "25 year old exemption".

I read over the EPA and ICE information about importing non-US cars a few weeks ago and I could not find anything that gives one carte blanche to import a vehicle, even if it is 25 years old. It seemed to me from my reading that you still have to meet US standards applicable at the time and that it basically was so complex a process as to be not worth doing. Does anyone on the forum know anything about this?

Somewhere between "that is so cool" and "that is ugly AF".
