Its all about dollar$ and $en$e kids. It$ going to take money to fight it. If people are willing to throw some money, then the start of something cohesive can happen, if not its just a bunch of internet nothings... love lists, hate lists.
I have thought about this a lot, a lot longer than anyone else. I know the in's and outs, and things can be done, but it is slow. It is costly.
People don't want to pony up the cash. After all, look at all the places that have gone and copy what Motorex did in regards to import and legalization...all those guys... I mean no one.
Anyone who knows me knows I have had a "thing" for Skylines for many years now. But seriously, now, let's think about priorities. We are trying to reduce the size of government so it can focus on more impactful activities. Compared to reforming the FDA, Immigration, the DEA, and the ATF, for example, I see no value in wasting the government's (and my) money right now to legalize the importation of a car that's set up for left-lane driving and generally only marketable to kids who don't have the money to buy/maintain one in the first place.
Is it a dream of mine to own an R-34 vSpec II? Absolutely. Should it take priority over improving the testing protocols for new oncological medications? No.
To those who are having their ILLEGALLY POSESSED cars seized by the government -- I'm sorry. It's a tragedy. But not because you lost your car -- it's a tragedy that it will be crushed instead of being eligible for me to buy and drive myself 15 years from now. You knew what you were getting in to. You knew the risks. Don't belly-ache over being made the government's b****. Ask anyone who has ever grown "just a little harmless weed for medicinal purposes" and gotten busted. Ask anyone who has come over here from Mexico to work in order to put food on the table for their family. Ask anyone who has gotten a ticket for driving faster than the posted speed limit even though the road was flat, wide and dry and no other cars where anywhere around.
It is what it is. You played a dangerous game and you lost. End of story.
