    According to DOT, they are illigal for some reasons caused by the company that was importing them. I forgot the name of the company and why. But suposedly they are illigal right now. Dunno if its still in effect. But last time I checked was about 10 months ago before I got the Eclipse.

    And shush! I see what your tryin to do! Get me to spend 15k on a new car... yeah yeah, tryin to be sneeky! haha jp.

    Company name was MotoRex. In the latest issue of SCC they said that the compnay is shut down and that the DOT revoked the legality of all skylines except for 96-98s.

    US laws suck. That basically sums it up.

    They have to go through emissions and safety checks. At one point they had to be crash tested. Bringing it over is one thing but converting it and all the paper work makes them not worth it.

    Awesome ride btw.
