I thought it had to be owned less than 6 months to be considered a new car.  And I wonder when that 6 months starts.  Between red tape and shipping, you might exceed the 6 months right there.  :)

Some relish the challenge in and of itself.  It may not be having the car but being able to say, I got it here.  :)

 

Has to be owned for 6 months the car can be up to 10 years old look up NDI auto import

T.S.

I don't understand why someone would even want to own let alone drive a corvette in the Philippines

 

sounds like grief to me

 

What is wrong with driving a Corvette? I have seen Corvettes, Porsches, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, etc, in the Philippines.

There is nothing "wrong" with driving a Corvette here but it isn't going to be very "practical". I'm just imagining driving from Talisay to the City in bumper to bumper traffic in a low wide car with a large turning circle.

 

I can kind of get Smokeys POV because he is infatuated with this car and wants the satisfaction of knowing that he has managed to bring it here himself.

I like looking at it like an art work and we have lots of nice roads to play on and if I can get it there it a good investment

like BOB said there is nothing wrong with having one here but it is just not the most practical thing to own.

 

get jammed up between a couple jeepney that don't give a shit  then see how wonderful it is with them grinding your fenders.

 

its a status thing and if you can do it  then go for it

I've no idea about the investment part, but I do find the roads to be improving over on our side of the province.

 

Are you going to hire a driver Smokey?

I had a 65 Vett. I'm pretty good at missing the bigger pot holes. You buy the beer and I'll even drive it around for free.

Since the vehicle or bike needs to be in the wife's name do the imports need to be something your wife she is capable of driving? Is this a question customs would ask? As an example we have a 2012 Ford F350 Super Cab 4x4. My wife is 4'11" and can barely see over the steering wheel and I don't think will ever be able to drive it safely.

 

I would not import a F350 for a lot of reason's but just curious if customs needs to think it's for the wife and not for me.

I don't think you have to be able to drive to own a car.  Two different issues.
