I encourage anybody who doubts the legality of Silverstone's GTR to check it out for themselves. He brought the car here in March I believe. The production date stamped on the car inside B -pillar says it was produced "JAN XX 1989". On that same tag the VIN # stamping matches the stamping on the firewall, in the trunk & the underside of the chassis. I believe there is also record of the original sales receipt to the first owner from a Nissan dealership, all title transfer papers & all 15 years of registration receipts. I don't see how it can be called illegal. It's over 15 years old w/ a clean history. Maybe I'm missing something.
the R32 GTR's were not produced until Aug 1989 so there is no way that the "Jan 1989" serial number is real. If they all match then someone did some creative welding and finished it to look like the car was actually built at that time. There are guys also falsifying the Japanese export documents to show that the car is 15 yrs old. So with those papers you show customs, they don't think anything of it and there you go!!!
oh BTW ALL the GTR's in edmonton I seriously question whether they are registered to a nissan skyline GTR. I know the truth!
