Skylines are getting more expensive in japan at the minute and hard to buy. You would get one here as cheap.that newer model 350gt or whatever correct name is for it there is 100s of them everyday in auction if they tickle you fancy can be bought cheap.i have another chaser leaving japan shortly. Chasers are great fun and the 1jz is a winner

Yeah bud they are easier bought.
I just dont get the whole estate 4wd auto thing.
I know there may be different models also. Seen a few evo 7s selling at very reasonable money recently and if you keep good eye on auctions the odd ps13 comes up cheaper too

There is alot of headache involved. Its not just buying the car its everything after that. The car is the cheap part the rest is mental.storage, in land travel ( if required), radiation check, freight charges, freight insurance,recycle charge, auction fees etc.

If you deal with an import company and not a garage it will be cheaper.

What kind of car you looking exactly and i will have a look at auction for you.
We aren't after a proticular car as such looking to start of with one or two cars and build up from there. Thanks for the help tho.

I have a friend who speaks Japanese so have that covered lol
