    I was watching a random video on youtube and came across this car, no one in the comments, or anyone i ask simply dont know. but a rwd. Sedan that potentially looks like a toyota or an acura is really impressive. Im trying to figure it out because who knows... If its a deal I might get one !

    they are now legal to import, but good luck getting parts since many japanese cars share mechanical parts with their similar US models while body/interior/cosmetic pieces will simply have to be shipped from overseas.

    Thanks for the reply guys and yeah that makes alot of sense, Mechanical parts would be easier to replace/repair , where something like a bumper or whatever would be overseas... Do you guys think its worth owning one in the us?

    stock ones are probably $8-9k for starters, unless you want to do the importing process yourself and contracting out when needed. knock $2k off if you want to attempt it.

    most, if not all Mark 2s (i don't care much for toyotas in general so i can't say this with 100% certainty), were automatics.

    for that kind of money, it would have to be a more unique car for me. you could probably find a decent early LS400 and manual swap it for half the cost of an imported mark 2. or just look for a late 80s cressida (same chassis as the mk 2) and drop a turbo in it since its basically a supra sedan.

    Soooo many sweet rides becoming legal for import now. I can't wait to start seeing the mid/late 90's Hondas.
