Oh oh! I see krikit posting a reply too and she was just visiting the same thread as me!!

Anyway in this thread: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=108211

One_day_at_a_time mentioned you can do it later:

The following from U.S. Customs and Border Requirements for importing a vehicle or vehicle parts is good info:


It's not imperative that you "import" the car when you cross the border. I didn't. I got myself settled, got my manufacturer's compliance letter from Hyundai by email and went to the local CBP office to "import" my car three months after entry.

You don't have to back to the border or airport. You can go to a more local office
