I started this blog to document the process and adventure of identifying, acquiring and driving a classic BMW through Europe and finally ship it home.  I will continue to update anything relative to the car as time goes on.  This will hopefully help others who are thinking about going through a similar process to import a car.  Feel free to contact me if you’d like any help or a co-pilot for such a trip; I’d do it again in a second!

I have passionate affinity for iconic and interesting European cars.  Current owner of a 1986 Citroen 2CV, 1971 Fiat 500L, 1996 Porsche 911 and of course,  a 1966 BMW 1800.

    Read your piece on BMW Vintage & Classic CCA newsletter. Thank you so much! And thank you for this great blog….I’m just going to have to take a couple of days off to read it.

    Such a pleasure to meet you in Milwaukee this week. Your car is every bit as gorgeous as it is in the pictures. Thanks again for teh gift of the rubber strap for my headlight bucket, that made the trip up to the show totally worth it! I hope you’ll definitely consider joining us in September for the Widny City Club’s Vintagefest. Hope to see you again soon!



    • Hi Martin,

      Thanks for visiting the blog; good meeting you as well. I just registered for the event and I’m looking forward to it! I’ve been doing a fair amount of work on the car since my last post here and I plan on updating the blog soon so stay tuned. See you on the FAQ board…

  3. Hi Luis!

    Great blog you have going here. Love your NK!

    BTW, I am posting a link to it on the Puerto Rico Classic Bimmer Group page. If you want some stickers with our logo, just shoot me an email with your address.



  4. Hi Luis,
    I’ve seen somewhere that you have a wiring diagram for BMW 2000 CS.
    I’m in desperate need of such a diagram – could I ask you to send it to me?
    Best wishes,

  5. I just found your blog on the BAT import-export survey. I’m in the process of finding a car to import from Japan (older than 25 years), and I could find no information at all on importing a car into the US! All I found was a million requotes from all the government websites. You are the only person I could find that actually imported a car, and went to pick it up at the port themselves! The info helped me a lot, especially since I want to do the same, and at the Baltimore port. Would you be able to give me your email address so I could pick your brain a little bit? Thanks,
