Do you live in the US? If you do, how did you get the Skyline over here? Shouldve went with the R34.

Um yeah because those cars cant be used in the US for daily driving only for shows and sometimes track... There were approxamitely 15 of those cars in the states. The amount of money to get those cars to pass US inspection and shipped to the states is an arm and a leg!
I have to call BS on this until other wise proven...

Its not impossible, more likely improbable and a waste of money for a car thats 15 years old. It would make more sense (and cents) to buy a Infiniti G35. Heres part of an artilce I found on Edmunds.com:

How to Buy One
Most Skylines in America ultimately come from Motorex in Torrance, California. Nissan never exported any Skylines to the United States, so a few had to be sacrificed to prove their crashworthiness to the Department of Transportation (DOT), and it's Motorex that did that testing. It's been applying what it's learned to producing DOT-approved Skyline GT-Rs ever since and has put somewhere between 170 and 180 on America's roads, says General Manager Quincy Yamada.

The conversion process is straightforward, explains Sean Morris, who used to work for Motorex before opening his own shop, RB Motoring specializing in Skylines. "The biggest thing was proving to the DOT that they were crashworthy," he says. Getting the car's emissions in line takes some work, but it's doable. Then there are dozens of details like making sure all the labels and identification numbers on the car conform to standards that go into making a car strictly legal.

A few less-than-strictly-legal Skylines have snuck into the U.S. and registered. But if law enforcement catches up with one, it's likely to be confiscated and exported or worse. If you want to import a GT-R yourself, be prepared to learn all the intricacies of certification that a company like Motorex already knows. And Motorex isn't sharing its knowledge.

But if you're determined to go it alone, start with the Web sites of the federal agencies with which you'll be dealing: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Customs. All three are packed with information on importing vehicles, but none make the task appear less than daunting.

they downplay the amount of vehicles that had to meet there doom to get it passed.... I believe its about 5 for crashes alone, I think 2 had to be in pieces for inspection labeled...

In the states I drove a '97 Nissan Altima and '90 Nissan 240 SX Fastback...
My dream is to have a 96 Supra Twin Turbo or Nissan Skyline Twin Turbo

I used to drive a Lexus GS300, retrofitted Q45 headlights, bodykit, new paint job, sold it before I had the chance to go all out with a Japanese VIP widebody kit, man I miss that car. I found this pic from the guy I sold it to from clublexus.com



I drive an 06 Toyota 4Runner now, plan on getting some 22's and maybe retrofitting a pair of Q45 projectors in them too.

Ive always been a fan of the Supra as well as the NSX.
