It's just not worth it, unless you just can't live without that car. Shipping it would be the cheapest part of all this, and that would cost a small fortune. Once you got it to America the government wouldn't let you
drive it or tag it until it meets all the EPA pollution and safety regulations for that model year. That means you have to hire a conversion company to make the car legal in the US, because you can't just do that yourself. The government wants a certified company to do the conversions. They run you through endless red tape, time and expense. And a government inspector is part of the whole thing, and he can make it as expensive as he wants for you. This will be the biggest and most espensive mightmare you can imagine if you try it. So unless you've got thousands of dollars to spend I wouldn't do it. Not to mention the 8-12 months it will take for all the different government agencies to sign off on the car.
I know this is not what you wanted to hear but it's the ugly truth, sorry! Just look up all the regulations on this at the U.S. Government web sites and you'll see what I'm talking about.
