i dont think you saw a Skyline, it was most likely a Sylvia (S14) with a RB26 (engine code for skylines) dropped into it and with the Skyline badging and front end...the biggest thing that probably made you think it was a skyline was because of the lights in the back (you can get them off of Ebay)

You can get special consideration from the Government to have "Grey Market" cars in the country, If the Skyline had a dealer plate on the vehicle, then maybe, just maybe the vehicle was here for testing. I do remember reading that with the new success with Nissan, the Skyline was on the maybe list for North America. It is very likely that the vehicle he saw was in fact a Skyline

i can bet you $100 you saw a S14 with a RB26 dropped in the engine bay, i've seen enough of the Sylivias (S14) in car shows with Rb26 engines dropped into them, that is the only possible way you can have a Skyline here...and im telling you the lights and the badging fooled you, that dealer can not bring a Skyline here, the weight on those things is too much and they never pass the emissions over here thas why they are illegal!

why would yo test an old car in a country where they dont alow alot of fast cars?

no sence, and they were thiking of bringing the skyline her, but the european version which is much weaker then the japanese version

ok u guys arent listening, i know it can be mistaken for a 240 but the car pulled up to the stop light, stopped for a few mins making a right turn (there was lots of traffic) and i stood there looking at this car, ( i was chilling outside my shop having a smoke) i know what 240's look like and ive seen what the look like when converted to skyline, but u could tell that it wasnt a "wannabe" the body lines were different, betmen im sure u a skyline freak but dont think ur the only one that knows about those cars

ok, go tehre again and see if you can spot it, if you get mea pic of you beside the car, or just the cars pic and proof that its in GTA, ill give you 50$, and go and see the car
cuz im really sceptcal bout it, i mean it could happen(with little chance) but i duno, if there is one then its sick and ill go see it for sure


but rite now i dont think it was here

but im just sceptical, no offence man, not disin you or anything

BOYS, heres an idea, if the apperent "SKYLINE" had dealer plates on it, then why not call all the dealers in the area and ask if they have any skylines for sale?!?!
I doubt it was dealer from sauga, or caledon allowing a test drive all the way to RH!!

well
He's at WORK in PICKERING...(haha sorry sold, I had to do the caps thing)

anyways


you know there are several Skylines in Van City and thers one in Alberta...


I guess it's making it's way here in Toronto? I wouldn't be surprised tho. Even the star said people in America would drive up here just to street race. ( What I'm thinking is people drive up here to put their car into the show)

Heres a site that does importing...Thers another company that is doing it but it's not coming to mind at the moment.

Was it right or left hadn drive?
The R33 has been converted to left hand drive before, so I wouldn't doubt you perhaps saw one.

im pretty sure it was left hand but im not 100% cuz his tints were pretty dark

The fact of them matter is that it could have been a skyline.

There are alot of rich people in canada and there are alot of ways to get around laws.

There are alot of things that are not legal in Canada but they still make it here.


Another thing to consider is that Dark Nights is this weekend the car could have been trailered over from the U.S.A and he is going to just put it in the show.

Maybe he knows someone that owns a dealership that gave him a dealer plate to go for a ride.


Just and idea

Take it easy Guys

i thought about that aswell but the car was stock, no rims nothing, but maybe u can still contend in a car show with a stock skyline...

betman...IF the dealer was somehow testing old skylines..why would they tell anyone? i mean thats like BMW going on their site and saying "on june 10th we will release one E60 M5 for testing by us, please go follow it, and interupt with the testing"

The R33 is legal in Canada. The R34 is not. The US can import the R34. You cannot buy or order these cars from the dealership, you have to import it from Japan or China etc...

hey i called this dealer shgip, he told me there is no skylines here in the GTA, and i asked if they were testing anything, and he asked me why i ask, and then i told him, and he went quiet for like 10 sec, then he is like "no, there is no skylines here,they are illegal and there is no need for them, they are old and we only have new cars", i duno, the pause was long
hmmmmm
might be, but i still would like to see it.......so if you see it again tell me, cuz i reaaaaaaaaaly wana see it again

thanks, and carry a camera wiht you now

those cars are hard to make LHD. Some dude here in NZ tried to convert them and sell them in the US. A lot of the turbo setup gets in the way.

and i have to say it again skylines aren't that great..

Hey Mike, what colour was it? I saw one about 2 years ago also with dealer plates parked at a Nissan dealer. At the time I didn't know anything about Japanese cars, and I guess I still don't :D But my friend owned a 300Z twin turbo so he knows tones about Nissans. He was sticking his head under the car and feeling for stuff, afterwards stands up and says "yup, it's a real skyline" The one we saw was white.
