Please accept my heartfelt condolences for what happened in Christchurch today. It is now obvious that the USA is now no longer the only place that has crazies with guns.

Re: Japanese imports to USA

Yes it was sad to see in my beautiful country, but it was only a matter of time for this country to catch up with the rest of the world.
I only hope they send the bad people back to their own country to serve the sentences as we don't want these sort here in new Zealand.

The shooter is from Australia so he wouldn't have far to go. I'm sure he'll be tried and serve his time in NZ putting the financial burden on you guys.

Back to the post's subject - For a peek at what's available USA side, go to my "neighbor", at Duncan Classic Cars, Christiansburg, VA. near Roanoke (Google it). He has well over 600 recently imported Japanese cars to inspect, & purchase. The inventory's on line, & you can walk through this huge "museum" & touch any vehicle at your leisure.

Re: Japanese imports to USA

Does seem to have a nice Alcyone/SVX in stock :

Although, I'm not sure I see any appeal in driving a RHD car in a LHD country, when there are affordable LHD versions domestically available.

Still, the car looks to be in great condition.

Re: Japanese imports to USA

Sadly here in Quebec you can no longer licence a RHD vehicle unless is it at least 25 years old.
