Re: Probably going to buy this today.. What you think? (kpride1004)

Is the car in the states yet, have you seen it? The guy will only accept wire transfers......that is a little shaddy. I am not sure what the company's credentials are so I can't speak to that...
I would buy it if I had the loot to spare...
good luck

skyline: http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
seller:

I dont know how these importing business's work, but I'd be careful. That would suck if you plopped down 28k for it and it turns out you cant register the damn thing.
Good luck.

Keep in mind that it's not a GTR. This may affect your ability to resell if you come to that point. Also, I'd ask to see some documentation to ensure the car is us legal. Cover your butt in all ways, there are several more legitimate ways to get a skyline if you really want one, ways that are more secure than e-bay.

Yup, like I said... first problem is that it's not a GTR.

$28k for a middling performer being imported through an importer that doesn't even let his eBay feedback be shown publicly?
Pass.

you can still see the numbers. (11 positive...yippee) Maybe he also sells a bunch of porn and doesn't want those sales showing up

looking at all previous comments, I think each and every reason to avoid has been detailed....
I've never seen an ebay user with "private" feedback score... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
if seller will only take direct wire transfer, ask him for his bank acct number......

There are only a few people with the ability to bring Skylines into this country and provide the paperwork necessary to get the car on the road. I've never heard of this guy so I'm suspect.
Go over to FreshAlloy and spend some time reading (not posting - a million people have already asked how to bring one in). Learn about the players and the process.
I'd pass on this one.

Re: Probably going to buy this today.. What you think? (Rennwagen)

There is that company in Gardena Calif. named motorex I think. Before I was into VW's I was into the 240sx with the SR20DET swap and the Skyline. Motorex has skyline's on their lot that are fully federalized and ready to sell. This looks bogus. If it sounds to good to be true,, it usually is.
