the only alluring thing about the skyline is, you can't have it. and like everyone has said to me what you cant have maks you wanna have it. like that brand new 997(911) turbo i saw yesterday. i want it, but can't get it

You poring some gass on it ain't you. LOL

To tell a Nissan guy about Porsh!t as an alternative? HA!
See dat shiny shotgun behind me boy?
It does 3 things:
1. It shots big game
2. It shoots boys who are disrespcfull to my daughters
3. And Fu Fu Eurotuners who think they can drive,
because thay can write a big check.

Now you wouldn't be one of them Fu fu boys would ya?

We like skylines because:
1. They destroyed a racing series( no R32GT-R= no trophy)
Japanese Group A racing
2. Twin turbo
3. 2.6L Inline 6 DOHC
4. SUPER HICAS(High Capacity Active Steering)
5. ATTESA-ETS electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system
6. 1300HP power potential
7. If we liked porshas so much we wouldent be in this forum. Hello?

Re: Would this work to import?

i'd take a brand new 997 turbo over nething but a viper.
i could honostly care less about racing in japan, i live in the good ol U.S.A.

let me give an example of what a skyline is like in america. Awd and Aws is covered by the stealth tt and mitsu vr4. the supra can cover the hp and the modded hp. the 2.6l is smaller than my stealths. the aws(same type) can b found on a z32. the only 2 things the skyline has that all the above listed cars dont, it had a 4dr version, o and it's evidently easier to spell than PORSCHE, dont mispell the name of a car just becuase u dont like it. if u went to the porsche section they'd kill u.

2) i've owned an r33, and i sold it cause the stealth was better, and cheaper to get parts for, isnt as much of a hassle to get insurance.
3) i just bought a Porsche 944

here's an example of a car u dont want because u can have it, a chevy corvette z06. it's cheaper than importing a skyline, it beats the skyline around the ring, and it's got more power, y dont u want it, cause it's not a forbidden fruit.
in the usa u cant have a skyline as easily, so u want it. does that make sense. like i said, i cant have a 997 turbo because i cant afford it, but i want one, i cant have it(yet)

Re: Would this work to import?

one i'm not a fu fu, i can drive, i just like porsche's, honostly i hate ferrari's and lambo's. porsche's have a sex appeal to em, and i like em.
damn it's that much, i pay 2.90pg here.
i'm leaving the stealth up in jersey, becuase i wont b able to afford an appt and that car, the porsche will b cheaper, because it ain't turbo, and it's a four banger, not fast, and i dont want it to b. the stealth is quick enuf with 320hp and awd.

and a marlin doesnt make sense, even tho u live in florida, a deer and a shotgun would make more sense

Re: Would this work to import?

Man I'm playing with ya.
what realy annoys me is kids putting APC stickers on for performance, street racing and killing people.
This guy told me all about is son. and finnished with saying that the first mod the kis would make is to remove the airbag to add a racing wheel.
If you are investing your time to make your racecraft better.
Then I'm cool
The average single bedroom in Atlanta is $500pm
No tolls no bridge tax.
I moved from NYC 6 years ago.
My wallet has never regretted it.
There is Road Atlanta
Allanta motor speedway.
The highways are smooth and fast
and Full coverage insurence is rediculously cheep.
If you brake down on the interstate they aint gonna burn your car in 2 hours.
You can get a 3br/ 2 ba house wit 1-2 car garage for 125K down here.
There is the NOPI store here on the South side
And some good speed shops too.
I also know where to get good pizzia too.

Re: Would this work to import?

another option to get the skyline:

if you know someone in canada, register it under his name and drive it back to your place, one of my friend will do this.

i'm from quebec and this is the car i drive, an r32 skyline. i can tell for those who wants this car that it's totally amazing! can't wait till summer comes to get my car out of storage

i think motorex is out of buisness now since the owner is in jail for fraud

Re: Would this work to import?

u could also just buy the car in canada and drive it back to the states. and register it for off road use only...no import costs. but u cant really use it on the road. u could also go with show title. means(in jersey at least) you're allowed up to 2500miles a yr(the state/insurance will check) and can drive it to car shows or w/e u wish. yes even to burger king, if u can figure out how to go thru a drive thru by yourself in a rhd car...that was always my issue

long story short...no and i'm not going to move to ATl. that gf and i didnt work out, but i had moved to VA, and in an area where racing was huge. and there was supposed to b a guy going too, he and i dont talk anymore. both her and he did something that i can look past, but i wouldnt wanna live with either being that i cant really trust em. so now i'm broke, working two jobs to make up for some of the money i spent, then when i get the chance i'll likely move to that part of VA again to go after racing. plus VIR was not even an hour away, charlotte was about 2hrs away as was richmond, and south boston was about an hr. atl would b about 6.5 to 7hrs away from that part of VA. so i'll b putting myself in a good spot for racing.

as for racing u...i gotta get the stealth fixed again, hit a tree on sunday going down my driveway that had ice under the snow. i didnt know it was there, and yea my car was on that tree from about 930am till around 7pm, no way to get it out w/o a guide truck to keep it from going further into the ditch.

i may move to atl...but VA was cheap, and i know the area a lil b/c i lived there even if only for a month or so. plus i work for ups, that part of VA(city of danville) has it's own ups, i may b able to get a transfer, and not need to worry bout a job wen i get there...granted atl has like 6 or 7 ups depots. but Va is gonna b cheaper than ATl, i'll likely make trips down there tho. there autoatlanta....big porsche parts place

Re: Would this work to import?

look heres a way around everything k...they sell skylines in canada that are legal in the US so if u already have a skyline from somewhere else like i do in japan strip it of all parts send it to the states they cant tell u tht u cant send back engines and turbos or what not bc its not a car anymore buy a legal skyline from canada for like 10 k and put ur other shit in it.... or buy a 240 sx and do the same case closed it works ive done it
