It should't be a big deal, you are allowed to import cars from canada for personal use. And most likely the loyale will have all the EPA stickers required for the united states. If you don't want to deal with the paperwork you could have a registered importer broker the deal for you.

The CMVSS (canadian NHTSA) uses very similar standards, there are very few models/years that the CMVSS allows but are banned by the NHTSA.

EPA form 3520-1 and DOT form HS-7 are the major ones for clearing customs.

Your local DMV could probably provide the rest of the documents needed.

I have sold to US citizens that drive the car over the border themselves…very simple if the car is 25yrs old ...bill of sale and signed..plus the ownership of the vehicle…pay your tax at the border and continue to drive away...
