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
