After long searches through the web and talking to many a mentally handicapped US customs worker (as soon as I said sports car) quote "from where?"(Japan) "Im not shure about that hold please FOREVER!!! end quote,
This is all I got out of who I got ahold of and Im just waiting for my long distence bill,so thanks again 99GSR for leading me in the right direction I
actually got somone that directed me to a person that imports Skyline's in GA,
its costly though(to do it yourself) and if the car is brought to the US whole (in one piece) customs will siez it or crush it at the point of entry so its better to send the tranny in one crate and the car in another and it comes in as "car parts" so if you are looking to do this
what you are looking at is
1.40ft container for the car (JPN 560,240.51) or ($4800.00 US)
2.20ft container for the tranny (JPN 326,719.32) or ($2800.00 US)
3.cost of the car say (JPN 1,167.210) or ($10,000.00 US)
4.Duty tax is 2.5%
5.customs paperwork US $650.00
(note):there is a way to save on that big over seas shipping,you can always see if you can piggyback on someone elses shipment like a import dealer

but Id wrather get one thats already in the states like alabama or georgia or any other that sells them and from what I was told you can get it registered titled and tagged as well as inshured in the US. just dont EVEN try it in NY or CA cuz it wont happen!
