I could do it for you.

They are around $7k. I am leaving for the USA very soon... i could bring one with me.

YOu do realise... 99% of them are automatic. I have only found one EVER that was a manual and i think that was a conversion. Not to mention they are all RHD.

are you ****in serious? Thats retarded... wait a sec. I have seen one dude from the US with an FTO... and another that was a show car (it was some fugly purple looking thing)

Also, getting one into the USA is the easy bit... getting it registered is the hard thing. Now, there are ways you can get around that. One is to take the engine out... have it inspected as a "Kit car" and put the engine in and have it on a kit car title.. that will make you exempt from anything. The same thing is done with Skylines that are in the US

Its free if you do it yourself. The only cost you will have will be the shipping cost.

Another huge money maker is to buy a Supra from the UK (mike you might wanna listen up on this one) and ship it to the US... yes it would be RHD but it would also be 10k cheaper. The price difference for supras is retarded... they are soo much cheaper here.

They are fast... the auto is faster.

I have access to all the JDM auctions with cars that come directly off the boats. Crazy bargains there.

JDM supras are not as well built... and they are slower
