Not legal.I went up one day to see the car, and drove it the hell off their lot and home to my house. They had to forfeit their import bond on it with NHTSA. I found out that they had declared it as a Canadian market car with their EPA customs declaration.
Did they not do 1 minute of research? A car cannot be imported LEGALLY until it hits the date of manufacture. GTRs did not start manufacture until May. This car was declared a CDM car when it's JDM. All of which is a perfect example of an ILLEGALLY imported GTR.
I post this because there have been multiple topics here about importing JDM cars, this is how NOT to do it. His car can now be seized at any time and destroyed not to mention the fact that the importer "lied" (or was ignorant) to the US government. If anyone is thinking of trying this method, don't.
Motorex (or w/e that company was called) years ago did shady shit like this to import things like R33s. People had their cars taken from their houses by customs agents and destroyed.
