Pristine example of the classic 432 with original S20 engine restored by Japan’s premier artisian!
Tops in handling. Light, rigid, hatchback body with a bigger-than-you-need engine.
Perfect package. Fine left hand drive examples are here in Japan.
Race ready and a ton of fun even it it weighs far less than that!
A perfect minitruck option for hunters: Extended cab gives dry storage space for rifle and rope, tarp and tent.
Guys! Guys!! Guys!!! You can have this car now in the USA.
Finally, good 25 year old Nissan 180SXs are available for the States.
The stock cars that can out handle an EK9 are precious few, and that’s a fact.
Good condition EK9 Civics can still be found here in Japan.
Not much beats a Benz in the top sedan class on this planet.
Unless it’s an AMG like this E-class. 6 liters of brute tuned NA power. 6 liters, Guys.
Want to buy an MX5? Look into buying one direct from Japan.
We’ve got many good, low mileage, well cared for examples of this classic roadster.
This clean B6 with silky smooth 2.8 in-line six is yet another example of a LHD gem available in Japan.
How is it that in their super long running G-Class Benz combines toughness and classiness so well?
These cars last forever and are forever stylish.
The best handling FF car ever. For sure. The best handling car ever?
Possibly. If you want handling, go for a good DC-2 from Japan.
What a beauty! The purity of the air-cooled 911 with the 2.4 liter N/A engine.
Let us find you a pristine example to import yourself.
A station wagon in the Premier League of supercars? 0-60 in under 5 seconds?
Yes, for sure. Hard body and practicality. Only the WRX STi can do it.
Few cars in the “very quick” class give you more bang for the buck than a 1990s Mitsubishi’s Lancer Evo.
And very tuneable, too.
It’s the supercar for real driving on real roads because the really high power can really be put to the road via All-Wheel Drive. Accelerate!!
First rate light commercial from Toyota’s truck division that’s #1 in Japan.
Many body styles available used, including this Low Floor type.
One of the best optional features that comes with some minitrucks is the dump body.
This 1988 truck is clear to import to USA or Australia.
Front mid-engine + Two seater + Less than 700kgs + Intercooled turbo = A total blast to drive.
The top luxury convertible in the world: SL-Class.
Pull up to the front door in one of these and it’s klasse. Marvelous. You have “arrived.”
Most people don’t know that Japan is a near paradise for classic cars in fine shape.
Cars like this lovely, and loved, 1965 Mark 2.
The very justly very famous “Hachi Roku” AE-86: King of the light drift cars; a top FR sports coupe.
Good units can still be found here in Japan.
Very nice Kei trucks with super low mileage can be
imported to the USA no problem. Grab one now!
One of the “Heavies” in the drift car world.
With its nearly indestructible turbo 1JZ-GTE the sky’s the limit for power on boost.
A stunning, thundering super powered rocket.
Well modded, bordeline extreme.
A Prince among drift car royalty.
Now a very popular import to the U.K. for the growing Drift Car Mania.
