Classic cars on Mexican eBay

Hi guys,
I haven't posted anything for a while but I came across something I just had to share. I was goofing around looking at stuff on Mexico's version of eBay and I couldn't believe some of the stuff I found. Classic car prices here in the US have gotten pretty stupid, but down there the prices are still reasonable if not down right cheap.

Here's a few examples, converted to US dollars:
1968 Dodge Dart GTS - $3541
1967 Barracuda - $2724
1967 Impala SS - $4358
1970 Camaro - $5720
1959 Apache pickup - $2905
1968 Chevelle - $4086
1965 Mustang - $6265
1947 Ford coupe -$2996
1957 Fairlane 2dr - $4313

Check it out for yourself:

Anybody know how hard it is to bring vehicles back from Mexico?

Im here in San Diego, Its a sprint for the border after the cars are stolen here in town. Be sure your not buying back a hot car. I know it sounds harsh and bazar, But it should be a very real concern.

Mexican Autos into the USA

OK guys and girls,
First of all, I just brought a 1946 Ford Coupe across the Mexican/USA border a week ago Saturday night. (07/21) If the car was ever imported from the USA and you have the importation paperwork you are in great shape. If you have a title, a bill of sale, and the import papers, as long as the car is "older" (I don't know,how old this is?) you are home free. It won't cost you a dime. I would recommend that you go across the border from Monday morning through Friday afternoon just in case you have a problem. I would also recommend that you use a regular Mexican car hauler company that goes through the border a lot, as the Border Patrol knows them, and it will ease your entry. I went across at 9:30 Saturday night, and I almost had a real problem. The import offices are only open Monday morning through Friday afternoon, not on the weekend.

I thought the young Mexican lad helping me had the title, importation papers, and bill of sale. It turns out that all he had was an old, old, old Mexican title. We had all of the paperwork at one point in time. ??????? It just goes to show you, CHECK EVERYTHING TWICE YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!! DON"T DEPEND ON ANYONE ELSE!!!!!

I finally sweet talked the border guard until he let us go across. But, it was very iffy for awhile.

I would not buy a car from close to the border. If you can find one on your own like I did down in the mainland, you are much better off. I spend each winter in Mexico, and regardless of what you hear or read, away from the border, Cozumel and other "tourist" areas, the Mexican people are a wonderful people. There is a very common saying among Canadians (which there are a tremendous amount of in Mexico), and Americans, that a Mexican will give you the shirt off his back, even if he doesn't have another shirt. At the border, on both sides, there are a bunch of theives!

If you have any questions, although I have covered almost everything, please don't hesitat to e-mail me. <isahar@verizon.net>

I lived in Mesa Arizona in the early 80's and had a brand new Monte Carlo, it was stolen and never recovered,, the cops told me that it was probably in Mexico with in a couple of hours after being stolen and the chances of getting it back was impossible,,

I was in Old Mexico in 1986, I seen lots of classics down there. A prototype 66 Camaro was found there. Reggie Jackson has been getting classics out of mexico for a long time, that`s where he went to get his Chevy II SS.
I`ve always wanted to go back, but I wouldn`t risk it now, too many americans get kidnapped. They kidnap you, kill you, then send your family a ransom notice.

Safe in Mexico

I'm sorry, but I must disagree with you. I've spent the last two winters in Mexico in my motorhome. That's where I found my '46 Ford Coupe. I have never felt safer in a foreign country than in the vast majority of Mexico and I have been to Europe 7 times. You must get away from the border at least twenty miles and avoid the very large cities. Don't go to Tijuana. I also never drive at night unless it's in a town. The whole country is open range, and I just wouldn't want to hit a horse with the Mazda Miata that we tow.

Other than those things, I feel much safer there than I do in Philly, or NYC, etc. Now, I have never been to the very southern part of Mexico, so that could be different. 40% of Mexico's income is from tourism. They have realized that they must take care of their visitors to maintain and increase that income. Since Fox was elected he has really cleaned things up down there. There is none of the graft and corruption that there used to be, especially in the police force. At least where the average tourist can see it. They just passed a law that allows foreiners to ownland there. Many Americans and Canadians are buying property there to build winter homes.
