Put away all sharp things;

R32 V-spec $9,000.00R33 V-spec $16,000.00R34 V-spec $38,000.00

These are just some I see in the paper, pretty average.

no, that's what you pay for one on a car lot in Japan. importin is where the juicing happens, the imports pay half that for their cars.

just what I see on lots, I've seen guys get the hookup from freinds and buy R32 GT-Rs for $3000.00 but instances like that are rare.

i guess that they would be rare being that you pretty much never find them that cheap becuase they are already gone before you can even think about buying it!!!

you know how much they pay for a Yukon or a escalade or a 'Vette in Japan? WAY more than we do here... it's the same way in most countries.

We have 'vettes and yearn for a skyline.. they have skylines and yearn for 'vettes... go figure.

i think we should come to some type of agreement ;), but i doubt the people in japan yearn for a vette as much as people here are dying for skylines and such, althought when i was watching a video of the official 'fastest street car in japan' believe it or not, it was a heavily modified corvette c5

yeah i guess that displacement comes in handy. i saw a best motoring video with the top 3 japanes dometics against the top 3 'exports': porsche, 360 modena, C5 Vette. the guy driving the vette was really impressed and said its a car they should get more of. but id rather have a skyline ;)
