Well Mercedes didnt like it and convinced politicians of all kinds of falsehoods (the cars werent as safe..they pollute more, lights were different etc.) and now we're fucked.

Politicians again, dropped the ball. Instead of giving the manufacturer a fair start with a new model (like patents) they had to go ahead and blow it out of the water. 6 years would have been perfect considering most models last 5-6 years.

Poster, I mean poster. What have I done?

S15 is easily one of my favourite cars. S14 Kouki is awesome also.

I am a car fan... and I say fuck this kid and his cars. Owning a skyline in the US has always been a walk on a legal tightrope. Everyone fucking knows that. Am I supposed to feel bad for him because he got away with it for a long time before he got caught?

If this were any other crime none of you would be singing this song. Hell, diddling priests got away with it for a very long time. Because they weren't caught for a long time and in a time of 2 wars and economic uncertainty, penis touching isn't that big a deal - should we resume supplying them with fatherless children to molest?

We all know the government does stupid stuff. We all know that tracking down skyline owners is the kind of stupid stuff that the government does best.

How surprised am I supposed to be that they tracked down this guy? How bad am I supposed to feel for a guy who posted about his illegal cars on the interweb and then offered advice on how to get fraudulent documents for it?

I love dogs. But when some jackass wants to feel tough and walks around with a roided-out pitbull with an anchor chain around its neck, I don't really spend the night home crying when the obvious attack happens and the thing has to be put down.

It's a shame about the cars, but stupidity really does need to be punished.

Nothing better to do than worry about illegal cars as killers roam the streets and the economy goes down the drain but holy shit where did that skyline come from!!!!!

Or just go and buy the fucking GTR that is available here and eats the old ones for lunch while still leaving you the option of going through tollbooths and drive-throughs.

As for the expense, I'd have to say a current GTR would have been cheaper for this dumbass.

EDIT: Also, this isn't really much of an investigation. I'll bet you most of the evidence against him was paperwork that he filed with the government. That's like a kid going out of his way to dispose of his empty cigarette packs in his mom's trashcan and then complaing when he gets caught. If you don't want to get caught by someone for doing something, don't go and tell them you did it.
