It would be possible but expensive and pointless. Having a right-hand drive car is completely legal in the United States! thumbsup

A '99 should be selling for a LOT more than that! There must be something wrong with it...like it's missing the engine or something spineyes do you have a link to the sale?

Yeh, I'd run the VIN first, then ask the seller why they forgot to at a few zeros to the price tag. Then ask who he stole it from.

it's pointless to change the steering wheel to the left side, and besides, i think the right hand side looks better in a skyline. it's just all the fee's for importing and legalization that i would worry about

Its a stupid scam.
http://msnbc.msn.com/id/3660528/
Its not a GT-R, its a GTS-T, the rear wheel drive version of the skyline. It still uses a RB motor but a different form which makes less power than the GT-R. I've seen some stuff like that online too myself. Found a yellow S2000 for $6000 and a 2003 Acura NSX for $14,000. Full of bull*hit! RHD cars are legal but theres an extra fee for having it (thats if the DMV knows) wink Its more practical to drive on the same side as ur country. If u've driven a RHD car b4, u'll know that you have a tendancy to look out ur driver side window (searching for the Mirror) and flick on the windshield wipers when you wanna signal left/right. Making left turns are a b*tch too... can't see the median. Its just not practical to drive on the right side when ur driving in a country thats driving on the left side of the road. Driving on the track is different tho.

OK so I e-mailed this guy
Just for the hell of it
because lets face it we are all interested
so the car is in the uk right now he is shipping it into the states
I asked him about hipping it to me in canada
he said he would and I would pay the frieght
Cool so for I had 30 days with the car if i didnt like i could send it back to him in the original crate
he said the care was in mint shape with a motor and running
Now here is the catch
before he sent the car I needed to wire $2500.00
to him
thumbsdown

That is NOT an RB26DETT.

Linked Image

Nope.


Linked Image

Yep.

There are also no brand name references other than "Apex'i Filter". Just aftermarket intercooler, standard racing wheels, full exhaust system, blow off valve (that car does not need a BOV), full sound system. WTF? No brands? There is also no reference to HP or torque numbers. Another thing, the stock GTR seats are insanely bolstered, the ones pictured are not the standard seats, nor are they Bride or Recaro.

It's a load of bullshit. The engine looks more like a Mazda 13B than an RB26, there are not brand names listed, no power figures, no additional wesbite for more info (i.e. where did it come from? who imported it? exactly how has it been modified?). Too many quirky things.

Of sourse its not an RB26DETT engine its a RB25VETT with VVT (this is not a joke I know Nissan motors). The Neo series engine itself is pretty good since it is a very rare engine and has the highest level of VVT nissan ever created. This type of engine was supposed to replace all of Nissans engines, but they were scrapped for the more powerful and more compact VQ series motors. This line of engines also include RB26VETT,the above mentioned RB25VETT,SR20VET, and the SR20VET Bluebird(FWD). The price is completely wrong for this car a 0 should be added to the end. The only thing I can think of that could be wrong is that maybe the VVT is fucked up.

Noo.. its a scam. There was an news report on them recently (unfortunately, i wasnt able to see it). Yea, i sent an email to a guy who was selling a 2003 Honda S2000 for $6000 and said:

Hello there,

First i want to tell you that i'm in London,UK and the car is still for sale,the shipping is free and will be done through Auto Trans Expres,about the paymant i prefere money order.
About the car it have a clear title and it is in best condition,never wreked and never involved in a car accident.
The total price for the car is 6000 included the shipping taxes.
For more information please contact me!

Have a nice day.

Andy


The damn thing has "SCAM" all over it. You get what you pay for, and in this case, you'll probably get nothing in return. O cool... I knew of the SR20VET but wasn't sure which car had it. VQ engines are alright for the V35 Skylines but honestly Nissan should stick with the infamous RB motor for the next generation GT-R, FM layout or 4WD.

if it was 7800, it would be like the ad for the 10 dollar mint ford mustang, that the wife sells because she is mad at her husband (wasnt that in a country music video once?)

The only car ever made that has the SR20VET is the Garaiya (sp?) made by Autobacs. They probably could use a version of the RB in any of those but the FM since FM stands for Front Mid Engine placement. The I6 would wreak chaos on the weight distribution of one of those. Unless you put it in transversly (FWD) and would be limited to FWD.

OoO the Garaiya soo nice. Tommy Kaira ZZII is comparable tho. That'd be interesting, Mid-Ship GT-R. Let's pray Nissan takes their time with the next GT-R and make it King of the track once more.
