Importing 25 year old car

I am interested in importing a 124 300TD with a manual transmission.
Can anyone tell me how to go about that or where to read up regarding the rules of compliance. I read somewhere ( don't know where anymore ) that it is easier to import 25year old cars or older. Is that true?

Hm... are we talking importing from USA to Germany, or any other one from 1,000,000 combinations?
From what I know not too many countries allow importing old car at all and W124 is not really a classic.

If you are wanting to import to Canada, cars over 25 years old qualify as antique vehicles and do not have to comply with the set of reg.s that newer cars do. Yo still have the PST and GST ripoff to follow.
