How'd you, or the previous owner, import that into the US?

Not to ask security questions, but... I WANT an R32 Skyline or a 90's Mazda Cosmo. :(

I've been trying to contact the original owner myself but its been impossible, the export papers witch I still have indicate that the person who bought the car here was in the US air force and the car was already a classic in some states (25 years or older) so it's easier to export.

If you want an R32 there's 2 for sale right now in the Orlando area, check Craigslist orlando but get ready to pay.

And just found out that there's a Cosmo for sale in the Tampa area also.

what would you rate the interior? i like the maroon that toyota was making back in those days, a factory 2-tone paint code would look killer on that car. you thinking white/tan or white/gray?

The interior needed a little help but I already took care of that, found an almost identical Cressida front seat to replace the bucket seat, took care of the dash crack and gave her a theral cleaning so the interior is near to mint now, ill snap some new pics tomorrow.

On the 2 tone I already have a couple of examples I'm looking into like you said white and beige but also gray on dark gray.

DAMN that's nice. the "turbo" light wayhoff was talking about should be in the dash somewhere. little green "turbo" word should illuminate under boost unless it's vacuum line or wires got disconnected somehow.

does that answer your other forum question?
