Nice, but it's not going to happen. You can buy it, and even bring it here, but you cannot register or insure it here. It does not meet DOT and EPA standards. I tried every way I could think of to buy a brand new air cooled VW bug when they were still building them in Mexico. I had an easy way to get it here, all I had to do was to have a Mexican citizen drive it across the border. But it would have been a huge paperweight. People have transferred the VIN plate from a U.S. bug to one of those, but if you get caught, you are looking at a few years in the federal pokey.
