When looking at various auction sites all i find is shiny gtr replicas, with matching pricetags.
Surely there must be some sort of websites were i can find the not so good looking and less expensive ones? I can fix it up myself, i dont need a car thats already been fixed up.
There are so many oictures on the internet with rusty cars, fields full of them, grass growing three foot high, we all know these pictures.

Were can i buy these cars? Or, does it involve a trip to japan and drag them out of the field myself?

Usually you can't buy them. They're either graveyards for car shops or people's stuff they will just hold onto until they die; have tried that one already !

I check tradecarview(dot)com site is in English so if you don't know Japanese you can use this site. Of course it probably has less options than say ... goo-net but i think it has a decent selection and I do see skylines up on the site.

^ this comment sidesteps the op's question/request
first, you underestimate his abilities
second, you assume people are like you and can afford a ready-to-run hako or meri
third, sounds like he WANTS the challenge of a basket case

Thanks everybody, the goo-net is new for me.

U fortunately ericbauer's reply is gone but form the post below that i can guess its content.
I am looking for a basket case indeed. Fix it up myself, thats the joy of owning an old car for me.
Anybody with some cash can buy a nice driveable or restored car, thats not what i' after.

A point well made Eric. Transporting a non runner is as expensive as importing a semi-decent running car.

http://page18.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/a ... w106751724

See if the seller will sell you that as it is. Container it over to the UK (I believe their tax is cheaper than yours) and then trailer it back over.

Not sure if you've imported you own cars before, but if you need a hand, let me know. The guys who helped me with my Bluebird were excellent at every step of the journey.

Eric, you may need to excercise some caution here. I suspect your previous imports from UK were cars that had been registered in UK prior to them leaving the country. And transfers between EU were tax free so no import taxes on your side.

In the case of a car that has just been freshly shipped in from Japan one needs to get a valid MOT before you can apply for UK registration documents. And if the car requires a lot of work, then getting the car to a MOT fit state could take months if not years!

I believe that such an import could leave UK still unregistered and with Japanese registration documents. I would expect in such a case Dutch authorities would ignore the UK transit and treat it no different to a direct import from Japan and levy appropriate taxes thereby effectively putting you back to square one. :shock:

Thanks, i had been looking into that and you are right. Only with UK MOT it could be a benefit. Otherwise it will probably be cheaper to have it shipped to the Netherlands right away.
