You would be better off talking to someone @ MotoRex or VIP Imports, who already have countless skylines here, and then wouldn't need to go through all the issues of actually getting it over here.

It would have to be my daily driver. Besides the 4WD should be able to hand the winter here unlike my fish out of water 3 does.

hmm....$14.5k to import a vehicle that may or may not have major problems and that, while it may be a Nissan, has probably never been worked on by any mechanic where you live and for which parts are probably hard to find and expensive?

Buddy, importing japanese cars to Canada is a serious fad right now. In my little city of 300,000 people there's about 15 Skylines that popped up in the last year. Not only are there like a jabizillion companies importing these cars; there's many selling parts too. http://forums.gtrcanada.com/viewforum.php?f=7
