Great itasha on the Levin! And the Hk11 March... I wonder if I can find one for myself when I'm in Japan next week...
So what is done to the Hk11 Nissan March? it looks bone stock except maybe he rear ended someone with a reese hitch and he had to replace the grill
@Lastspark Its low and on wheels. Like a lot of cars here, but that's speedhunters for you. At least its a bit of variety! Looks like it also has some stuff done to the interior like seats and steering wheel and the work might not stop there.
@bakayaru They are! You just have to import it yourself.
JDMized: seriously, how are you so comfortable spouting ignorant misinformation? Yes, I have tried to import an Alfa. People in the U.S. have been jailed for importing Alfas. I even wanted to cut one into pieces, and re-assemble here as a "kit car", but kit car laws have become more difficult as well. If you don't know something to be true, kindly keep your ideas to yourself.
@JDMized Aargh you again?! By request of Mercedes Benz, a "grey market" ban was put into effect, blocking at port the importation of All road cars, except those approved for U.S. consumption. To drive an Alfa 155, I'd need to buy 4 of them, give 3 copies to the NHTA, pay an obscene amount of $$$ - and still they'd say "no". Try to import one.
