    If you can prove ownership and that is has been registered in NZ before probably ok, probably needs re vinning, may not be cheap to do

    yup re-vinning required so whack another grand onto the cost .....
    then they always find something wrong basicly they want it to be like an as new car .....
    and then if they find its had an accident and repair at some stage they will want an engineers report ..... more $$$$$$

    What make is it? If it’s a classic then it might be worth it. If it’s a 20 year old jappa then scrap it.

    Re-VIN is apparently a nightmare.

    Havent done one for many years, think.. the strictest (bastard) WOF-guy you can imagine, (unless its a classic for some reason), always requires new brakes, hoses etc. New seat-belts if faded or no-longer compliant. Walk in to VTNZ, and ask them, sometimes the guys off to one side doing bikes and classics, dont mind a chat ,whereas the counter-people usually quote from the book

    Can get fuuuucking expensive, depending on what it is and how old and rooted it is.

    In my younger days not that I'm that old now, I use to play with cars alot. The only vehicles now that I would have a crack at re-vining o bringing back to glory are 2dr muscle, classic or vintage cars. It's really not with the drama, heartache or dollars invested unless it's one of the above that will hold its value.

    Basically you take your dereg car to vtnz or an outfit that has the authority to register a motor vehicle.
    They go over it with a fine tooth comb especially if it older then 20 years. Anything wrong gets marked down, to go any further all items must be fixed. Once fixed you pass compliance which gives you a wof. That last time I checked was 400 to 500 bucks? Cant remember.
    Then you go for the registration part which I around another 500 bucks. Believe me, if its an old vehicle they will start inventing problems with it. Not worth the hassle unless it's a special vehicle.

    That's something I might consider saving BUT in one word RUST. If it has any hidden rust they will find it and you will need to be welded and certified.
    It would have to be in real good condition and cheap.

    The Nissan 240z is considered a classic by some, it’s the only “original” design ie; not a copy of other makes. I don’t want to start something though.
