Hand Over Your Skylines To Be Crushed Or Your Going To Be Put Away For A Long Time! God Bless America!


Recommended Posts

Was on the phone to a guy at A&A corvette, complaining about a z06 not making more then 700hp cos the supercharger belt is slipping, as soon as i mentioned my email he asked if i was into skylines, then told me about this

2 r33's in the states are getting crushed because they are not allowed to exist. one is from the fast and the furious.

sorry if this is a re-post. its kinda f'd up if you ask me.

Re: "Dead Car Walking" X2

Didn't know they had the death penalty in Wisconsin.

It'd be nice to successfully appeal to the Governor to save them.

Especially if his pockets are empty from the GFC.

Where's Mr Walker?

Where's Mr Leno?

Where's Chuck?

Really shouldn't believe everything you hear and see. When I was in LA last year I saw this car at universal studios as well as a lot of the other cars from the film

That was last year....

It was confirmed earlier this week that big bird was indeed crushed. Pretty f*cked for the owner, especially considering most skyline owners in the USA have been getting notices giving them 28days to send the car overseas.

yeah i posted this already in the wasteland news and events section.

there is almost too many sections on this forum..

i would be tempted to do the jailtime to keep the cars, maybe he avoided a criminal record by doing so? pretty messed up they wouldnt even let him try and sell them overseas, would have gone for at least 15k each over here!

Actually its worse then that , homeland security is confiscating all skylines imported and used on the road " illegal imported contraband" no warning they just get a door knock , no choice but to let them haul it away !!! The usa forums are spewing cause thats how they found the cars in question trolling forums only cars allowed to stay are pure race cars not road worthy

the cars in LA are the GTT 's used in fast and furious as stunt cars , they all had gtr kits , the gtr hero car was stolen from the lot and never found

Sorry but this extract from the article just upsets me.

"Brown County Deputy District Attorney Dana Johnson offered Beno a plea deal wherein he would accept the misdemeanor charges and give up both fully restored Skylines. After offering to pay the fines and help the authorities find buyers for both machines overseas, the prosecutor declined."

These actions are lacking any sense of rational direction. They almost appear to be a low personal attack against the owner of the cars or a simple vicious power trip which is plain destructive and unnecessary.

If the cars were sold, imagine how many homeless children could have been fed or clothed with that money. If the facts in this article are true, the relevant authorities should be ashamed by their actions.

No argument there Chris.
