    Re: Japanese cars...

    if you mean the US or canada, you need to keep duties in mind, converting the car to LHD (local law MIGHT allow RHD though), emissions and swapping out JDM parts for US spec ones to pass emissions, and shipping which will cost$600 to $900 to ship to a major seaside port like Long Beach, San Francisco, etc.. Extra transportation afterwars since you cant just drive the car off the dock.

    I thought there was only one company, I think based in California that could legalize cars from Japan because they had done all the crash tests etc.. to United States standards. Or was that just the Skyline that they did?

    the skyline was not sold here, but something like a japanese MR2, RX7, etc were sold here. still, it's a big difference between selling as a business vs registering your own car, since a business needs to sell many and perform all the required checks, while you may not.
