No new r32's or r34's will ever be allowed past a RI (the inspector who maintains the strict list of items in every shipping container). There are what they call "grey market" cars which is basically shipping the body and the guts of the car in different containers on different ships. Most RI's will not even let a chassis by unless its cut into pieces (hence why you see front and rear clips for sale so often). No gt4 would be allowed past a RI either, the only way i could think of to get one here would be a grey market car which is illegal or shipping it to Canada and somehow trying to drive it across the boarder trying to pass it off as a normal commuter car this again is illegal.

So for an example i will use the Nissan skyline (r32 and r34 models are banned for life for importing BTW, so ill use a r33 for example) If a skyline r33 is 25 years old you are allowed to import these as a Nissan skyline of any kind was never produced in the U.S.A under any name (this is associated via chassis so the new GTR doesnt classify as the same car. Hence why a r32 and r34 cant be imported and a r33 could be because they have different chassis classifications). As for cars like the gt4/alltrac or for another example a toyota supra these cars are not eligable for import as they were also built in the U.S. (the name being all trac vs gt4 has no effect, it is considered to a RI as the same car) it would be the same if there never was an all-trac version released in the U.S and only a FWD model as they share the same chassis design they are deemed non-eligable.underscore wrote:N8wrx wrote:Yea my post was more so aimed at the "All-Trac" vs a gt4 as gt4's are not elligable for import as full cars.
You're getting pretty close though, isn't the magic age 25 years down there?
PS: This doesnt mean its IMPOSSIBLE to import them, there is a slight loop hole (legal loophole) but it is expensive and the car is still outlawed on standard U.S. roads. Your allowed to import cars for "racing" purposes, in order to do this is a very involved process with a RI and extreamly expensive. There is also a yearly fee they tack on as a sort of tax to do this and as i said you cant drive the car on any U.S. road they have to be trailered and cant be legally registered in any state.

Anything imported to the states has to go through a RI, there are no exceptions. Even a car 25 years old needs to be passed via a RI. A r32 and r34 is a exception to the 25 year rule as it has been federally outlawed for import EVER. There will never be any NEW whole r32's or r34's allowed to cross into the states. Grey market is a different story but is also illegal. I import cars so i know this is the 100% truth as i deal with RI's whenever parts/ cars are shipped here.
