I suggest an Accord V6 sedan....I would suggest the coupe only you said you carry people, so a coupe would not be ideal...

Ok really stringer, you need to read more about the people before you say stuff like this. He is from Fresno, California. I very highly doubt he will be able to import a Skyline for $25k or less. Don't mean to be rude, but a little common sense goes a long way.

Little boy, I've had just about enough of your attitude. If you want people to think you know about cars, first you need to broaden your horizons. The automotive world does not end in Tazmania. If you've even paid the remotest amount of attention in this forum, you would know that Skylines are not available in MOST of the world.

I've told you this before and I'll remind you again. Think, type, submit.

Fine then. Settle with the info that you have, asshole, but if you dont know what we import and things of that such, then shut up please.

stringer when you say there are thousands of imported cars over there... i wouldnt say the australian automotive industry is thriving. and skylines are somewhat expensive. yeah, fast and everyone wants one, but its not in the cards...
