aka gt2? which are sold in the US.

You have to federalize cars that aren't made for the US market. You can't just ship it in and drive it around.

I used to live in detroit Michigan. Just over the river from Windsor Canada. I used to race AMA CCS series. I bought a canadian Yamaha RZ500 4 cylinder 2 stroke. I brought it in on the back of my truck. I put number plates on it and signed documents saying it was being imported for "off road use only" In it came. I kept it as a track bike for a long time. When I sold it I made the guy who bought it sign off that he was doing the same. He licensed it and plated it and insured it. Not sure how. The other way alot of bike guys got the canadian 2 stroke road bikes in was to have the canadian owner just drive it over. So.... Does your buddy want to take a trip? Tell him to get a big run up to the ramp. I hear the jump is a long one.

It's not only easy to import a Canadian Edition into the United States, it's been done before - as recently as last year.

If you have money, then you have a way to do anything. If you are serious about it, do it! But like some people said it's easier to ship the chassis and the engine separately and then to register it as a kit car. A local guy with a R33 skyline is doing the same thing.

I got to say... Haven't checked this post in a while...

The deal didn't work out... There were some promises by different companies, but it was going to end up costing way more than "necessary". I am sorry to let you all down. Should have maintained the negativity.

Guess I'll just live with my two US Spec 95's

You just might be the best troll ever.

Coming back after 3 years to post in your first thread, with your second post.

I am amazed.

Old thread is old

Why not just throw a euro motor in your 95?
