From what I've heard as of now Skylines are not legal in canada but you can probably have it shipped from Europe to the States because Canada doesnt allow importing of skylines because they dont comply with their regulations so they are very strict...But even if you could it costs about 100K for a base R-34 and another 20K to legalize and I dont even know shipping charges...

Arthur, you do not know anything. You cant do it yourself just like that, there is a reason why motorex is one of the few companies that can import Skylines. They have gone through tests, and many modifications are done to the car to comply with American Laws. Motorex is the most Legit way you can do it. You can do it yourself, but be ready for spending alot of money, wasting a lot of time and not driving the skyline very much. Sure you can buy a skyline for around 20k usd in Japan, but around 4000-7000 to ship, not to mention duty taxes, modifications, insurance is every pricy on one of those things, and that is if you can import it by yourself which is highly unlikely. Best way is to go through import companies like Motorex, sure you have to pay more, but its peace of mind. There will be no one day a guy in a suit knocks on your front door and tows your car away for breaking 10 American Motor Vehicle Laws. And I live in Canada, it is not possible to get a skyline into Canada unless its 15 years or older. Of course you can import one for racing purposes, but it is impossible to license. Not improbable, impossible, they will not let you under any circumstances. You'll be lucky if you are able to get it through customs much less license it.

the skyline is not worth 40k let alone 100k! WAY over rated. Ask the people who can buy them like in europe or japan. Not what us American folks talk them up to be.

I heard that R32's are legal in Canada and not the newer ones, but I don't know if it's true :2cents:

Here in Canada I can bring in the 1989 R32's and I am currently looking into how I can bring in parts cars that are newer and see if I can build one. Not getting very good answers from the government. No one wants to make a decision so they can be held accountable, but I will keep trying. I can get anything that is more than the 15 years old here.

RusMan do you live in Canada, if so, where?

So how much would a new Skyline cost from another country, before doing the modifications?

from what i've researched, skylines have to be 15 years old to be imported to canada..but one question i have is.. are we allowed to import a skyline that is not 15 years old to the states, then have it driven to canada...its annoying how we can't own 1999 skylines. here in ottawa. i think only 4 people own skylines.
