Don't let her fool you. She only made it 3.2 hours because I took the Rover for that long...

I notice she signs her posts with "newbie Dave's better half."

She's also the one who is trying to convince you to buy another Rover.

How do you define "keeper"....

She doesn't have to convince me...It's just a matter time and money to do everything we want with the DII and then pick out another Rover.

It seems the disease is contagious. Will the Carolls be taking two Discos to MAR next year?

You never know... If not another Disco, then maybe a SIII 109...or maybe the DII will have a few more goodies. :lol:

Series 109... going hardcore that quick. I know a D1 for sale that has Prime Ministerial magic about it.

The PM DI is truly tempting, but in all honesty I'm a long way from buying another truck.

(Unless I sell my poor old Subaru...then all bets are off... 8) )

Hi,

I just joined the forum. I recently imported a 1982 Series III 88 from Italy. Everything has gone fine up to the point of doing the registration. The PA DMV, in looking to provide excellent service to their constituency, created a guide for registering an imported vehicle. Item six of their guide states the following needs to be included in the application package:

A letter from the vehicle manufacturer that includes information regarding the vehicle’s safety and EPA compliance 

My attempts at obtaining this letter haven't been met with success and I really don't think it should be necessary as the vehicle is over 25 years old and was EPA/DOT exempt for importing. However, I've been told twice now by different title services that I do need it in order for my title application to be completed and sent in to the state for processing. I spoke with Tower Auto in Blanox and asked how they have titled their 25+ year Defenders they have been selling. They said they do their own applications and have never sent in a letter. They only do the title work for their own vehicles unfortunately. I have talked to a title service in Latrobe who said they would send it without the letter so that's my next step.

Has anyone navigated through this process successfully? Any tips and advice you can shed? I looked through the past posts and noticed that John (freelander02) has done this before.

I would like to get the vehicle on the road before the end of the summer. Thanks for allowing me into the forum.

Welcome to the club. Harold handled PA registration for me. I don't recall having to provide much in the way of documentation. I'll speak with him and get back to you.
