T-rex....I just resent (CC'd to you) all of the paperwork there requesting. and I have an email from last week from everyone saying "thanks"...maybe I forgot to CC you in last weeks email...but...they all have it and they have it from yesterday from Sheri and I just sent it again at 530am (you included)...hopefully its all good now

Can you confirm that you have all the PDF's. Title, Bill of sale, Import App, the chocalate bar, newspaper, rubber gloves, thermal socks, chewing gum, stubbie holder and the bear claw?

 :grin:

PS. Your new radiator rolled up last week also

Thanks for the kind words mate.

Patience paid off big time on this one. I hope you and Bec are enjoying your new ##########. Say happy Birthday to Chloe from Sheri and myself

When are you going to let the cat out of your bags?  :lmao:
I want photos of what you said you were going to do YEAH?

Hi Matt and Sheri,

I havent had a chance to do proper pics.
Been working on her throughout the week getting her ready.
Its great learning about a completely different car.
I will get some photos up this weekend and post them (and let the cat out).

So I take it that, when the women in your life celebrate a birthday, you are given permission to buy them an expensive new toy! :grin:

Just keep reminding yourelf, with a bit of aluminium foil you can cook a meal in your engine bay but you can't drive around in your kitchen.

THirsty, I keep getting asked what it is by others...

Why not start a thread to see what people guess it to be first before the release?


OK..... I will get some proper pics up this weekend. :bolt:

Is it just me or dose it cost every one this much.... Just got the Invoice/bill for the Aussie brokers, and it comes to $4075.00....
Plus 2k for Shermatt, add $1270.00 for trucking fee, Floriida to L.A. plus $2560.00 for shipping [$600.00 of that is for total isurance].. comes to $9905.00 . Plus $100.00 for a flat bed truck to pick it up equals 10k, to import car I paid $14,500.00 for

The Aussie broker bill sounds high, what's the breakdown there? That's including Customs GST right?

The rest sounds similar, trucking from Florida to L.A. is a long haul, not sure if another port may have been a better option but the savings would be only in the trucking.

Yep sounds about right . Now it depends on how it was shipped ,in a container or drive on drive off .The way i look at it would be this way ,14500 for car ,1300 trucking to la ,around 2000 gst ,frieght to aust in container 3100 ,insurance in your case 600 .total around 21500 plus cleaning and extras and in your case shermatt  2 000 . so 23600 .Now thats how i would and  have been expecting ,cheaper if drive on/off take off 1500 . Plus truck home 100 dollars .

Agree, sounds right to me.
The Aussie end would include GST Stephen.

I looked up a number of passed threads on costs in bringing cars in before I bought mine.
I remember a couple posts saying allow between 7-10K , depending on how far port to Long Beach US shipping was, what port it was going to in Aus and of the GST on your purchase price.

Destination Port Charges and unpacking (From Schumachers $1,043.65 agent - Universal Customs) +GST $104.37
Customs Clearance / Agency Fees $180.00 + GST $18.00
Quarantine declaration and clearance $75.00 + GST $7.50
