25 year lift.....

Alright so as most people should know in the United States once a car is 25 years old it can be registered as a classic (unless a certain state has adopted their own laws) and at that point you can pretty much do whatever you want to the car without worrying about current registration and smog. Or better yet, bring them into the US....

Well as of a few days ago (January 1, 2014) the Nissan GTR R32 (1989) became legal to import into the United States. (Sorry California folks which include myself, its still 1975 or older)

My first love will always be Muscle cars (Mustangs in general) but I actually really want to try to get my hands on an R34 when they are legal to import... Own the true Godzilla

What are all your thoughts on this?

I've always loved the r32!

My thought is that they will be an unholy kind of expensive!

If you were able to get one that would be badass! As long as the Bullitt could stay too!

It would be nice to have one.... But I really wanted to know everyone's opinions on these cars finally being let into the US.

I think it's cool! But me being the "true blue" American I am, I wonder what it would do to our American car sales and our way of life. I doubt much bad could come out of it. It might make it harder on us muscle car guys tho

I lusted after the skyline growing up.

If you can indeed get them now (assuming right hand drive), that would be an awesome car. I'd be slightly worried about parts (cost more than availability... Looks like parts are somewhat easily available online).

Yea it would be nice. A dream of mine is I have either the R34 or an MKIV Supra. Heck, both would be cool.

I knew a guy who had a legit R33 in Indiana. I asked how he got it here, he said piece by piece. It wasn't plated or anything, just sat in his garage. He would occasionally put his 240SX plate on it and take it out for a spin or trailer it to the tracks.

Apparently, it came from Japan to Canada to the States. It was sold as a track car or something. I'm not sure the story on it. Haven't seen that guy in over 10 years.

That car stock was pretty quick, after he replaced the turbo and a few other things, that thing was a beast. It reminded me of a 240SX interior with all the go fast goodies and tech from a Mitsubishi 3k VR4. It was a cool car.

Yea you CAN get them. But his was most likely a rebuilt title or something along those lines.I don't think it was possible to have a clean title GTR in the US before the R35

I think his was imported into Canada as a complete and legal car. Then it was basically parted out a little at a time and sold across the border into the US. Eventually until the entire car was complete.

I know he tried several ways of getting it registered but as far as I know, he was never successful, even going with a rebuilt title and all of that.

To get it into the states I know it was as a closed course car or something like that. Basically competition use only. That may have been where he ran into troubles.

Regardless, importing vehicles into the US is way to difficult.
