Surprise! haha

Some of you may had known I was in the market again, but to many of you it is probably a surprise. So as you can tell from the pics I picked up a S13 Silvia today. I test drove this car about 2 weeks ago and was fairly happy with it. It got in a small fender bender a few months ago so the owner just bought some over fenders to replace the stock messed up ones because his friend had a set laying around. I have to say they are my favorite over fenders BUT I hate them on this car since it doesn't have rears nor wide enough wheels to fill them. I can fix the though ^_-

I already have a set of 18's for sale that I think I will just throw on this car and buy some spacers get them to sit where I would like. So this is what it looks like, besides the unpainted fender it is in pretty good shape and has fairly newer paint. I guess the color could be called Blurple.



Perfect dash with HUD and an array of guages and a EBC already installed. It has some older Bride bucket seats, a momo wheel, a Nismo shift knob, and a drift button all installed.

  11. Are you able to get a license and buy cars over there if you're on a visitation visa? Not saying you are but just curious to how all these foreigners are doing it.

  12. Not sure but I doubt it. Pretty sure you need a permanent address and phone number ect. It might be possible to buy one but I'm am almost 100% sure you wouldn't be able to register it. I think majority of the gaijin here are military so the whole process is easier and cheaper for them. Getting a license here is pretty difficult but if you get an international license you can drive here for up to a year. I dont think you can get a license on a vacation visa either, but i dont know for sure. Military don't need Japanese licenses. I'm not military and have been here a while so I had to get a Japanese license, it took a couple months to get it. There is a pretty large portion of gaijin here who either teach English or work regular jobs though, so like me they can buy a car at there own will.
