No. You need a special permit. *Offroad use only* or something like that.

If it was illegal to drive a RHD car in the States, every US Postal Service truck would get pulled over. So yes, it is perfectly legal. Just remember to keep on the right side of the road. Click the image to open in full size.

It's legal in all states, but there is a heavier inspection/registration/licensing fee for the car, and it's substantial. The fees vary state by state, but in OK and TX, it's close to double for inspection and licensing (don't know how much to initially register), and insurance is heavier as they are classified exotic sports cars, not just as the LHD version of the car is.

And now you know my entire reason for not getting one. Insurance is bad enough without having that added to it

Nope! Haven't sold it yet, people that see it are nothing but a bunch of lowballers, they don't understand the word FIRM!!! Plus that and that fact that I don't want it to go to a bad home.
