I think how it works here is cars can remain registered in another country for no more than a year before you have to register it in the UK. I lived with a guy from Germany and he decided to drive back to Germany with his car one time he went back because it was nearing the year he had it over here and he didn't want to pay the huge fee for it to be re-registered over here.

On my way to work i pass a car parked which has California plates.

Are you thinking about taking a car over here? I ask because you can get a relatively cheap run-around over here that is road legal for about 2-300 pounds ($500ish) no problem.

No, just figuring if a person who is in the UK with a car that is registered in the US and selling a car here in US. I got a hold of his offer on craigslist and checking if he was a scamming maniac.

I still think he is a scammer. I mean he is selling 2005 Honda Oddesey for $4950!

I think after you buy it, you will pay a big sum of money for customs clearance.

I don't know. That guy bragged that he is a Sergent in the army and it he would cover it because it is free for him.

As it turned out it was a stupid scam attempt. I suspected it at first but I decided to play along a little bit.

I am sure that it is full deceit. Sergent looks like he got a degree in *plum*.)))

The good old sargent in the UK now has a 2005 Honda Civic LX for sale for a meager $2990 because "it would take forever to register in UK".

Thanks for starting this thread. I Googled "Register US car in UK" and picked it up. Seemed pretty suspicious, but reading your posts, saved me a lot of time figuring out if it was legit or not.

Thanks.

I don't care about these offers anymore. I bought my 2005 Chevy Cobalt LS Coupe (Cheapest in it's class) for $2800 at an insurance auction. Well, not me, but my friend who is a dealer. It's got a little hit on the right back side and it would take me approximately $1000 to fix it. (Added around $300 to original estimate...)

That is where you get good cars for the price of the car :D
