www.j-garage.com usually has a couple, but there is lots of money involved. i'd just buy a USDM and put the JDM front clip on it if i had the cash.

find someone in japan to take the car apart. ship the engine, interior, and body in separate crates. when it gets here... wallah! you have a kit car that you can register as a kit car. no special licensing/smog/bullshit required.

i heard from a buddy of mine, that if you have a right hand drive car and want to drive it in the US you need to convert it to a left hand drive within a year.
i'm sure there are ways around it though.
good luck

OR GET IT CRASH TESTED OR GET A LETTER FROM HONDA STATING THAT IT IS SAFE ENOUGH TO DRIVE ON THE STREETS IF IT WERE TO GET IN AN ACCIDENT
