It's not that... there is no one here that I can trust to take car of my car..


canman: I'm looking into that.. fortunatly we have some MP's from Guam on island and one of them works for the DMV in Guam. My friend said that all I have to do to register my car in Guam is to have DOT glass and MPH speedo... Now I have to find out about getting it from Guam to the states.


I'm stil working on it.. have some more phone calls to make.

And my car is currently getting completly rebuilt, all diffrent aero parts, all new paint, just put in the new engine, 2000 carbon kevlar recaro seat etc.. it's a completly diffrent car... It' should be done by the first week of October or so... I'll take a bunch of pic's and some vidio, then maybe they will pull down your car from the Car OF THE YEAR, uhm.. I mean month... lol

dont give up!!

Get the car shipped over here as a parts car. take fenders, seats, lights etc. off. ship separately. You should have no problem getting it past customs. Look on the nhtsa website and call the RI in costa mesa, CAlifornia. Black Rhine motors i think. Talk to cornell. He might be able to help you get it here. Dont waste his time. Be direct with you questions and dont sound like a dumb ***. You are able to do it. dont give up.

I have friends... but most don't want to take care of my car because they dont want to be resposible for it.

corkbone: I'd love to bring it back as a parts car. I'm looking into it. It's just that I'm running out of time.

That's it right on the money. FD Okinawa's car is SO nice that I would hate for anything to happen to the paint/interior/engine. I'd feel bad if I just farted in the car, much less putting a scratch on the paint

From what I read on other posts, the guy didn't take his car back. He sold it and moved back to AZ and was looking for a new car.

Bret is trying his best to do so! All of the tie-ties have been replaced with metal fasteners and bolts, a stereo has been installed and Bret is adding aero parts from Chris's old yeller FD.

He owns a 3 rotor FC now. It's in the body shop getting repainted right now. He removed the PP motor and installed a SP with 3 ITB's. This car is really sweet. It's actually kinda famous in Japan.

Was it a 470hp green FC with deep dish gold wheels with silver lip?
If yes, I have it on DVD. Awesome sound. Tsuchiya said the car was a "Dorifto Machinda".
