So I think we need to chat..... What channels did you go through to get them here. I would love to import one into the country in a bad way! Where did they come from? So jealous!

I used an exporter from japan. It can take awhile to find what you want. Then you are just dealing with pictures. I bought my black 84 from a dealer and spent a lot of money on it. It ends up having a few bad rust spots that were not in the pictures :roll:

I have no idea what shipping on a single car is, but I was told around 1400, then add all the fees from the freight companies, I'd estimate at least 3k for a roll on roll off, plus import broker fees. Could range up to 650, then when the usda takes your car off site, you will owe another 100 to 200 for drayage to their warehouse, and then when usda decides my cars are not infested with bugs or are, they either release them, or make you pay more to fumnigate. I also forgot about the 100 dollar xray exam done by customs. I believe that was part of my 650 though,

If you wanna go with a 40ft container and get 4 cars stuffed in it, you are looking at 7100 just in shipping and drayage to portland or. Shipping was only about 3200, the rest were all these bs fees by the freight company.

All in all for my 40ft container with 4 cars, I'm up around 800 I am guessing, unless usda fumigates....

Expect usual importer fees to be something like, 70,000yen for the service, another 70,000 loading fee, plus maybe 20,000-50,000 inland transportation fee. They also include cleaning the car of foreign soil, an deregistration loading etc...

When I bought my last 2 cars the exchange rate was around 75 yen a dollar, OUCH, now it's up around 92, It's slowly getting better.

I plan on importing a few more cars in another year and a half when 89 r32 gtrs come legal. Currently 88 of the month manufactured cars are legal to import under the 25 year law. Future buys are a 83 or so galant sigma turbo, honda city 2 turbo, and, maybe a dr30


Oh and I bought 3 of my 4 cars off yahoo japan auctions. Best place to buy most of the time. The car auctions rarely have many old rarer mitsubishis or other odd makes. Pretty typical to find older nissans though, Goonet is also a great source. Dealer cars mostly, and typically uyou pay more, like I did for my blkack ex1800, but when you want it you want it, and you can often find old cars on it.

I'll post up a writeup on importing after I have my cars safe and it's all said and done along with a review of my exporter

I'm loving those wheels!.


I'm still waiting on the usda to release my cars.... I hope I'm not getting port late fees, hopefully not since it;'s off site.

Good luck! Thanks for the quick write up. I cant imagine a better car to park with my Starion's and Sapporo then a nice box type and am going to get one for sure. Are you planning on keeping all of your or selling?

Hmmm, we will have to keep in touch :wink:

I have been currently drooling over all the cars avail here...http://www.sulit.com.ph/index.php/classifieds+directory/id/3/q/lancer+box+type/Cars+and+Automotives.
Especially scince they are LHD and cheap as hell. Just not sure how the hell you could get one over here from there, and frankly to nervous to try!

cheap but also non turbo. The rare turbo ones over there go for a decent amount of money.

Oh absolutely! But as a decent driver it would be a cool car. I would prefer a turbo of course (or both! :twisted: ) but would not turn down a clean 1.6 or 1.8 car to enjoy.

I'm hoping to get home tonight so I czn start workinv on the black 84. I have some rust issues to address. The most immediate bwing the a pillar and then I will be having 3 new trunk weather stripping metal surrounds made since all 3 cars need them replaced.

Mexhanixally I will be changing timing componets, the front main seal' 14g turbo upgrade' posssibly lower it . Mainly just general preventitive maintenance and some scrubbing. I also need to get a new gas sending unit. And pull the bumper off to get it repaired.


The white 85 with hayashi is next. It will get the same maintenance, a good scrubbing and some new tires.

After I year I finally started licensing and getting them running. Unfortunately, I had some fuel pump issues with my black car. 3 pumps later, and it's running. I'm getting ready to build a 2.5 exhaust, and do some minor stuff like a 14g turbo upgrade. I just licensed it today, and hopefully in the next few weeks, I will get my 86 with the hayashi wheels licensed. FIrst I need to clean the gas tank out though.
