    as far as i know there are no left hand drive skylines

    you can either bust your ass and import one yourself, and then go through the hassle of fixing it to US standards and registering it, or go thru a company that specializes in importing them...

    I heard in russia and the united arab emrites you can get them left hand drive, but i've heard that relocating the steering makes a tight for for the turbo... or someting like that

    its too bad they have to be no the right side... id kill for an awd skyline that was left hand drive

    You can buy bodyshells and engines from this shop I know about. Buy them with separate checks, plug it in, bam. instant RHD GTR, register it as a kitcar or assembled vehicle and you don't have to put it through DOT standards. In some states anyway.

    Occasionally you can find a skyline that's been converted to RHD on Ebay...they sell for considerably more than a LHD though.

    i was always under the impression that a G35 is a 350Z. the G's have the 3.5 V6 and everything.

    hey you... back on the short bus.... :p

    Technically it kind of is.... BUT! the R35 that is based off of the G35 IS the next skyline to be released.... I just doubt it carrying anything over from the previous Gt-Rs...... maybe wheels.... but probably nothing

    In most states, you can rejister a RHD car. It doesnt really matter weather or not its up to "US" specs or not.

    Think about it. just take it to get inspected > the guy isnt gonna be like, "your bumper is not US spec - i have to fail the car."

    THey just make sure all your lights work, and that the car passes emissions, no exposes rust, ect - not weather your interior lights are US spec or not.

    its a lot more then that. one of the biggest problems is that there is no VIN number for the car. if you have no VIN how do you plan to get a title for it from the dmv?

    kti cars have strict rules.

    you CANNOT register a skyline as a kit car. cuz, well, its not a freakin kit.

    You don't register it as a kit car, you register it as an "Assembled Vehicle". You just have to make sure you buy the body and engine/trans with 2 different checks (on 2 different invoices).
