So uh, I've been reading on this forum for a couple o' months now, and I have some ideas.

Can you not buy a motor, chassis, and parts to make it legal, have a garage assemble it, and then have it tested?

or

Why doesn't someone in another country just make the adjustments to the cars to make them legal in the US and then import them?

or

Will someone in another country change the VIN and such to be some other car for me :P

Can you get rebuild kits for the RB series engines?
I didn't see those things discussed anywhere else; sorry if 'twere so.

1. No
2. No one knows the whole process, therefore No.
3. You can, but its still not legal
4. Yes, of course you can. www.takakaira.co.jp

"It is illegal to bring a car into the U.S. and sell it without first entering it through Customs. If you purchase a car that was brought into the U.S. and sold without being properly entered through Customs, that car is subject to seizure. NEVER purchase a used car in the U.S. if the owner cannot show that it is currently registered in the U.S. and demonstrate that it conforms to DOT and EPA standards. If purchasing a car from a dealer, they should handle registration for you, if they don't, the purchase should be contingent on your successful registration of the vehicle. (We get many calls from people who unwittingly purchased a vehicle that had been brought into the U.S. and then illegally sold. Buyer beware.) "

Claymoe you last post was deleted due to not only claiming/bragging to have done something very illegal with another car, now you are asking as simular thing for Skylines.

Go to freshalloy and post shit like that.

Sorry 'bout that. I guess I wasn't thinking. I didn't have a solution for everyone, only myself. My apologies; no use arguing, cuz it's like competing in the special olympics

Re: licensing and unlicensed skyline

I tried to PM that Omegasky guy and his box is full so either everyone and their brother is asking him about Omega or he isn't a very dilligent poster....In any case, I'd like to know about Omega.
As far as their website goes, I noticed it didn't look very good but mine isn't a whole lot better (I'm still learning HTML and web programming)---not yet, anyways.

Re: licensing and unlicensed skyline

Another thing---those of you interested in the regulations/mods/and fine print involved with legalizing a Skyline check out the thread entitled "RI's Recently Mentioned", where I divulge what may be an important shread of evidence in the "legalization" controversy that I came across today.
I say this often---Thank god for the "Freedom of Information Act"---now, if only information was really free, what a truly capitolist society we would live in!

I'll check them on the RI list and then, if they are there, I will call---I have a very interested party in an R34 which really sucks cuz nobody that I know of is complying them right now (for reasons unknown). I'd hate to tell this guy, "well, sorry, Motorex isn't doing it so no one can do it". My only hopes right now are Fuel Imports (if they are on the list) and JK, which I already know is....
By the way, to the question you asked on a different thread, FireFighter, Not on US SOIL (I'm sure you know the answer to this one, just to check if I'm a dipS*&^), they are located in an International Trade Zone (which is within US Border, technically).
I push that aspect of those cars because it seems it daunts some of my clientel that I can't take them to visit the vehicle before they buy it(the ones that are located overseas, unless they are willing to shell out for the cross-pacific tickets ) . Although all of us consider that the norm, Joe Blow the Middle-Aged Guy is used to getting to test drive his corvette before he buys it, you see....

Check your PM, and your email. Everything is tip-top perfect. SKYLINE AMERICA, and our complete network worldwide, is enthusiastic about opening up a new market in Canada. UK, Australia, and everywhere else 89-below exempt from complaince is next in line.

Re: licensing and unlicensed skyline

I spoke to a compliance tech that informed me that, after having done the first tests on the first car, which can cost in the upwards of $80k, that each complaince after that costs about $2k, tops. And that's if the people stand around like idiots with their hands in their pockets most of the time at $45 an hour.
Believe me or not---it doesn't matter. Everyone believes what they want to, anyways. Like I said before, the info is in the post titled "RI's Recently Discussed". If you don't WANT to know, DON't read it. I'll probably erase it tomorrow, anyways. Unless I do it right now.....
