Postby Eternal_Reign » Sun Feb 02, 2003 8:17 pm

Where would one find listings for used skylines (in the states already)?

http://www.skylinegtr.com which is the MotoRex site. Other than that I don't know. You may want to call them though cause I am sure they could tell you more about what they have or have coming in than what is on teh website.

I think he is talking about people who have already bought them and are selling them. I know about a year and a half ago, I was at my dads office in ontario looking for 240's and I came across someone selling an R33 GT-R in AutoTrader for like 30K. Just look in the same places as you would any other car. It won't be easy to find though.

Look on ebay. I've been shopping lately for one too (well, more like scoping them out for the near future). There are usually one or two legal ones on ebay at almost any time.

Also, you can talk to daunt about it. That might actually be the best idea ;)

Here's a new company importing them as well. They are actually working with Motorex, but somewhat cheaper. http://www.rbmotoring.com

And don't forget to visit http://www.afterdark-tuning.comIf it's from Japan, we can get it for you. Except for a hot japanese girl...you have to get that on your own.

The New Mustang Mach 1 does the same thing all motor, no 4wd, so what? The outlandish prices people are paying for used Rs is criminal. I hope these new companies on the block lower the prices for the guys in the states who simply must have an R. Wouldn't own one myself.

Daunt was very helpfull to me with many many questions that I had concerning getting me a Skyline.The main thing is can you drop some $$ and then wait?Some of the other places I looked you can get one in less time but they cost much more.Such a bad car that not to many people have!:D

well i never said the GT-Rs werent over priced, $85k from motoRex??, totaly ripoff, especially since they cost about $55k new in japan, and thats right off the lot, so until they come down to the states, id never pay that much to get one inported and legalized, hell hte NSX cost that much new here, and i think htat is a ripoff, especially when a 4oo+hp zo6 can be bought new for 5ok

Well if I ever come back to the states I will be bringing the R30 Paul Newman version. Talk about rare, Motorex suck it. I will find the chump that was in Stupid Street claiming his Hakosuka was GT-R and the Yakuza wanted to kill him and pummel him at the strip if he wants to limp that thing out.

I have a special dispensation to hate on that guy. I live in Okinawa so did he, I have seen that guy and I have seen that car, I know it's not a GT-R. Why? because my Silvia was parked next to it one night at the street drags and I gave it the once over. He knows it's not a GT-R but he has chosen to BS people as he did through the whole article. He did'nt come correct so he gets no respect. I am one of a dozen or so people here who will hound this screwball if he ever makes the mistake of coming back. Stupid Street chose not to publish any of the comments sent by myself and others clarifying the steaming pile of crap this guy shoveled, they are a rice-rag they gets none.

If they were "professionals" he wouldn't have fooled them. Take a look at the article, they show the body designation on the fender tag, that's a 2000GT. They came with an L20 six not the L28 that it has now. The reason his buddy wouldn't give him the S20 six is because he didn't have one because he didn't have an R. Starting to make sense isn't it:thinker
