No, it's the same. Plus, the military will not ship it until you give them a copy of the contract with the Registered Importer and a receipt for the down payment (of minimum of $5,000 when I last checked).

legal skylines

dude like, if Cali. is so anal about skylines, then why not bring it into another sea port state, I'm in FL, so I'm sure it would all be cool with them.

It's not Cali that's being anal, it's the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Association), DOT and EPA that have created all the restrictions/regulations on importation. And lastly it's US Customs enforcing those regulations.

Re: Re: Re: legal skylines

If everyone has strong feelings about this why want anyone do anything about it or take actions. Why dont we take actions against the NHTSA, EPA, DOT and Customs. Who are the jackasses that make these laws and regulations anyway. And decide to make everything more difficult than it should be. They dont care as long as it doesnt inconvience them. What we need are a lot of people, RIs, customers, and other groups of people sending letters, requests, and suggestions to get them to pay it some attention and maybe consider changing it. We have alot of people here and other forums with strong opinions and feelings about this to get a point across, make an impact, and make progress towards getting this through to them. I know there may be some flaws and drawbacks in this. Poin them out if there are any you see.

1 word, 4 letters. if you cant guess what it is, go ahead and buy it. i can almost guarentee it. the person believes that there is only 3 in the country, obviously has no idea about the car nor is history. it has a stupid evo wing. retarded. i dont know. hell, the reserve is probably 60 grand, at least....and its not even worth it for track use only.

It's fake alright, I don't think anyone will sell a BNR34 for under 80k, in the U.S. Probably some guy trying to B.S. you.

Heck I wouldn't be suprised if someone actually buys and get nothing and we start hearing it on the papers.
