from what i heard, cars like that are not anything rare in japan. While all of his cars would cost shit tons of money here in the states, they are the norm there
GT-Rs of every kind are actually pretty rare sight here. Enough so that it is normal for people driving them to take pics with other ones when they see them in a p-lot or honk/wave/something when you see one. I see other Hakosukas the least as they start at 35,000USD for the non GT-R and go up to 150,000 USD for a Hakosuka GT-R. That's pretty much a worldwide price as they can be shipped anywhere. I have put about 35,000 into my R33 GT-R on top of a selling price of 15,000. You are right though. if this car would have been a federally legal GT-R in the states, it would be 50,000+ automatically. The STI Subarus, ESPECIALLY the GC8 model is like the grocery getter here. EVERYBODY has two, seriously.. I bought mine for 3800 USD and its a 1999 model with 60,000kms.
My job is I won the lottery in 2006 and I do translation work because languages is what I was good at and I finally was able to pursue it
Well, I guess I'll post mine too..... lol '93 Ford Thunderbird...Rear wheel drive, SUCKS in snow (or even rain for that matter) But it is seriously comfy and roomy (especially for a 2 door), has a seriously good heater, and the HUGE trunk can hold 4 boards and all the gear...If there's enough snow to get stuck, then we can just use the car as our own personal lodge, and ride until rescue arrives.
Looks like I win the "who has the worst beater on here" contest..lol
