    Yeah - Photobucket has killed off a lot of history

    Pics will be coming soon, once the car is re-assembled

    Awesome!!!!!!

    So, are you selling or keeping?

    Sadly, I will be selling :( purely because I will be in Japan, surrounded by gorgeous cars that I will have to have............

    Although, if I like (enough) this car, I may well try and hold onto it for a little while......




















    I think I may be undecided....... :smash: :driving:

    It's not quite as easy in Japan as it is over here. To buy/own and drive a car in most of Japan you need resident documentation, proof of adequate private parking space and all sorts of local paperwork before you can even put plates on it and drive it legally.

    It's hard work.

    Have read that usually the hard bit is the parking space. I will be buying for friends and renting.... only going to be there for 2-3 months and then onto the next place.

    Once I settle, then I will get another car

    I think you'll find it hard to actually "buy for"anybody. If it's for export you will need to have people 'in the trade' involved anyway, so your role would pretty much be reduced to inspecting cars on behalf of the prospective buyer and letting the professionals do their stuff.

    Japan is one of those places where short-circuiting the system doesn't really work. You'll most likely be on a three month Tourist visa (extendable in-country, but there's a limit...) and therefore won't have much time/status to get a properly rented place of residence and all the other gubbins you need to own and run a car, let alone start any business activities (necessitating change of visa status...). Renting a car of course is easy, but you'll need somewhere to park it legally whether you have it for one day or one month.

    I don't want to come off as too negative (probably too late....) but Japan's bureaucracy tends to win in the end. A bit of casual trading in parts is one thing, but whole vehicles is another thing altogether.

    You are right, so don't worry about it ;) I have done a lot of reading up on it, so realise that having a car there for that period of time is next to impossible....

    Spectating on buying and shipping overseas is my plan, at least I still get to see cars, go out in them, etc.
