Importing a car from the USA to Australia.
What are the regulations if I was to import a 2012 model car?

Do I have to have it switched to right hand drive?

I see older models, still left hand drive, with no sticker, driving around.

Looked at some site with no real answers. Just info on what paperwork is needed to clear customs.

Check out the regulations with customs or your motor vehicle dept. I made the mistake of importing a yank car a few years ago. I had to change the bumpers because they didn't meet CDN crash standards. It could have been expensive but I got lucky and found some junk yard bumpers to swap out fairly cheap.

I don't know if Australia is the same as here, but be careful. You could get fucked for a big repair bill to bring the car up to standard. Check it all out first.

had friends who hired containers and shipped cars and bikes over .

you need both special lincense and registration to even temporarily drive a left hander here, special plates and large signs front and rear.

they converted the cars , mainly corvettes on mass to save. you need a fiberglass mould for them.

conversion price all depends on model and how many cars you're doing.

Hold off, Ford is coming out with a RHD Mustang in 2015 or maybe earlier. Ready to go, no conversion. probably cheaper than you could buy a 2008 conversion.

Sure there'll be a 2015. Whether you'll be driving your Mustang around the Outback looking for gas like Mad Max or still working your tired old shitty job you hate... that's the question.

Looks like a win/win for me.
