Selling car from South America (Brazil/Argentina/Chile) in US/Canada

I am planning to travel from South America (Brazil) up to Canada. There's only one detail about the trip:

I'll be moving to Canada, so I want to keep my car (or sell and buy another one).

I understand it's hard to (if not impossible) to import used south american cars to US/Canada, unless the car is 15years old (or older). Is this information correct? 

So I started looking for traveles from US/Canada finishing their trips here, so I could buy a car without the hassle of importing problems... So now, another question arise: is it possible to transfer the car "overseas"? I mean, it's possible to keep the US/Canadian register and transfer the ownership without being in North America? Anyone in the forum has done it?

Any information will be greatly appreciated!

Regards,

Adilson

Not 15 yrs old. It must be 25

Not 15 yrs old. It must be 25 yrs old for not compliance with US import vehicle compliance.
