How to Buy and Store a JDM Car Overseas - 1995 Nissan Skyline GT-R

An example of how not to buy and store a car overseas. Seized R33 GT-R from a few years back 
Vehicles over 25 years old are legal to import to the USA. However once they turn 25 years old, everyone is trying to buy the same cars. And with the laws of supply and demand, we see a big spike in the prices. Buy now to help lock in prices today.

Toprank Importers can find and buy a vehicle that is not yet 25 years old, and store it in Japan for you, until it is 25 years old.  Then Toprank will ship it to the US.  In Japan, Toprank can handle any service or modifications you are looking to do.   Head over to the Car Finder, input what kind of classic Japanese car you are looking for, and start making your dream, a reality.
