They're not classic Ferraris or Porsches. Just a couple of old American muscle cars, and some of my favorite imports from the 90's. Plus my 06 STi, a car that I just can't quit. Seriously, I try to sell it every couple years only to have a deal on the table when I bail. It's just such a cool car.

A Skyline would be really nice though. My buddy has one and I'm waiting for him to sell it one day. It's a super clean R32 GT-R with some old school jdm mods. It's fast and super clean, and a hell of a performance bargain.



The pics are from about 6 years ago, but the car is still just as clean. It only has around 40,000 miles on it too.

I was bored one day and spent a few hours reading about the process and it seemed like you could do it for only a few thousand dollars. $12K GTR in good condition with some mods, $3k to import it and you have a hell of a head turner for only $15K. I'll try to find the links I bookmarked just in case I ever decided to do it, that outlines the costs.

The price on those cars only go up as they age, as older cars cost more to own in Japan (insurance). You can find driveable GTR's for as little as $5k US.

Depends on who the freight company is. It can be as little as $2500, it can be over $5k.
Correct, from the production date. I didn't realize they started in August. And yes, you can get them as low as $5K, but when you get into the $10K range, they're actually in pretty damn good shape. Plus, they're rarely stock so you could get one with a bunch of JDM goodies on it.
