      I'd like to nominate this for something. Anyone who puts this much effort into staging the interior for a photoshoot deserves some recognition. I particularly like the second photo, but would like to know if the pacifier, water bottle and unidentified crap spilling out of the glove box are included.

      HAHAHA! You had me with "staging". I clicked the link before reading the rest and literally laughed out loud when it opened. So good. "You think we should pick any of this up before listing it?" "Nah!"

      That caR looks sooooo good on the 17" sats. I'm sure Barry would be all over it if it was legal to import and LHD.

      (Barry, don't worry, there are a few LHD V70Rs hiding in Japan.......still got a few years to go before they turn 25, though . Or perhaps we should all join sventastic in BC....hmmmm......the V70Rs wouldn't be the only thing making that tempting these days )

      It is legal to import.... p80 x70 are on the green list. Seriously! Emissions and safety equipment is all the same worldwide 99-00.

      Lol you're all welcome in BC, Vancouver housing prices (average detached house is $1.5 million) might scare you off at first, but there's a lot of other great places to live here!

      The 850 is on that list too. So why is nobody doing it?

      It would probably cost as much as whatever you're importing to get it here from UK/EU/JP

      I doubt it; shipping a car on a ro-ro boat is like $1k or less. No worse than shipping a car across the country. The Canadians are doing it all the time.

      If these cars really are that easy to federalize, I think the real roadblock is the red tape. Most of the registered importers won't even email you back and the ones that do don't want to talk to you if you don't have a $100k+ car. It's under 25 so you're still stuck dealing with those losers.

      Agree. I can't figure out what you get for the extra 150 bucks, when you spend 1400 to GET IT ALL!

      At first I thought they were trying to make me sick. Then maybe thought they were trying to hide their location or tags. Nope... I was right the first time.

      Im guessing you get the speakers and amp that cost about $40 at any pawn shop. I was hoping for the extra money he would throw in a set of matching canistos.

      Uh oh, catching up on adding the new nominees and I've reached the image limit for the original post..........any way we can get an exemption from that limit for this post? If not, who's got some good alternate solutions to this problem?

      I wholeheartedly agree. I'm about topped out already.
      And as for the car: now you guys are gonna make me agonize over this whole thing again.
      Actually, after watching the car dude's video about the RHD Skyline, I reluctantly came to my senses. I need a DD, and THAT most certainly IS NOT IT.
      Would be fun to take to the Swedish car meets, but beyond that, it would be a tough nut to crack.
      I *think* I might have found something. V70R-something. We'll see. I'll know soon.

      I broke out in hives when I saw this... Looks pretty good, doesn't it?
      I went back and forth with this nimrod 3 times. I told him right off the bat that I was a long-distance buyer. He was ok with that.
      First, he came back and said he couldn't sell it because "the price is too low". I guess he re-thought it after he placed the ad.
      Undaunted, I said, "Well, what would you consider a good selling price?" He says, "$3500". I said. "Sounds reasonable".
      Then he said he couldn't sell, because he just sold his other car. I said "Sorry to hear that". He replies to that, "Well, I guess you can come look at it if you'd like?" HUH????
      So I said, "Remember, I'm an out of state buyer?"

      His reply:

      "nah man I'm not into all that."
