    So get a hold of your local BMV and ask them what would need done in order to register those vehicles.

    It's prohibitively expensive.

    You're looking at miles of paperwork, several different companies and government agencies to deal with, and a five-figure price tag.

    dude, seriously, you are a fucking idiot if you think you can import a japanese vehicle and get it through customs, inspection, and emmissions of your state has it for cheaper than buying a new s2k.
    most people who import a car that have never done it before usually dont make it past customs. then you get no car, and you are out the money it cost for the car and shipping.

    dont like the answers you get, dont ask the fucking question.
    just try it, go ahead and do it then post up your findings about it. tell us how much it took to get and loose.

    stop being a fuckbag.

    a jdm s2k from japan to 100% legal in your drive will easily cost you $80,000, a year of your time, and hundred of hours spent filling out forms at the NHSTA and DMV.

    you're wasting your time.
