Some come with no history at all, others comes with everything. Not usually too much of an issue as most Japs look after their cars very well, so service history is not really an issue.
One thing you want if you can get it is some form of proof showing what was done to the speedo when it was imported. Some importers wind the speedos back to the equivalent reading in miles, some just convert the speedo so it carries on from where it left off, but now in miles.
Something else to look for - if the car has tuning mods other than the basic induction kit and exhaust, then it's very useful to get a list of Exactly what's been done to it, especially if you plan to tune it further.
It might sound bloody obvious, but dont get carried away with the excitement of it all and buy the first one you see.
I have been guilty of this with other cars before :-(
There are loads for sale out there, so you can afford to be picky.
Good luck any way and I am sure you will be bitten buy the bug soon enuf.
I would definitely agree with Buster there. Though skylines are pretty solid and dependable cars, there are some that have been modified badly. Try and drive a few before you spend any money so you get a good idea of what a good one will feel like.
93 GTS 2.5 Turbo - very VERY standard - it basically hasn't been touched. And oh my God! How immaculate??? I haven't seen a car of 10 years looks so good... it is mint! Kenwood ICE, all the normal electrical bits etc etc etc... AND I managed to get £700 off and a free CAT1 alarm fitted...
