I am looking at purchasing a 1995 R33 GT-R. The car is registered and titled in my state. It is not a Motorex car so my assumption is that it was brought in through Florida or something like that where it got a title and then registered in my state. To me this is not legit, but hence my following question.
If it is not brought here through the correct method, does the 25 year rule override that? It is a February built car from what I was told, so only 2 months to the magic 25 years.
Would I be ok legally with it (including having an insurance company that won’t try to back out of a claim) if it doesn’t have the proper forms (like the EPA form 3520-1 and the DOT form HS-7), because of the 25 year rule, or am I going to be out of luck if it doesn’t have all paperwork (I know it has the build date info, but that may be it).
Cliff notes: Does the 25 year rule apply to vehicles brought here before they were 25 year old vehicles and not a MotorEx car?
