Lancia Deltas are great cars - why are there none/next to none in the US?

I've decided over the last few months that the lancia delta models are some of the best cars out there. They're just that cool. For some reason, though, there seem to be next to none in the US. I've looked online for a couple hours on why this is, and haven't found a remotably suitable explanation. I found a reference to them not exporting cars to the UK anymore because they weren't selling well & it wasn't profitable for Lancia to make right-steering models anymore, but why aren't they imported into the US? The only thing I can think of is that they didn't want to put a catalytic converter into them.. but in that case, why haven't more people just brought them over themselves?
As the (semi-obvious) follow-up, what are my options for getting one? Fwiw I'm specifically looking at the HF Integrales, maybe an Evoluzione, but really any late 1st generation model.
