Japan Golden Week Holiday & Japanese Car Auction Schedule 2018
For those wanting an R34 GTR please note that there have been some bargains at auction in Japan in the last week compared to 2016 pricing. An improved ex rate of 87 Yen to the Aust. dollar is also helping.
We have seen sudden price changes like this happen a number of times over the years and it has always been very short lived, usually only for a week or two. Generally it is related to world events and exchange rates combined with the time of year.
So these favourable buying conditions are UNLIKELY TO LAST LONG. If you want to import an R34 GTR, now would be a good time.
Two R34 GTR examples from auction yesterday:
2002 NISSAN SKYLINE R34 GTR, $59,300 complied
1999 NISSAN SKYLINE R34 GTR, $77,500 complied
Not in Australia ? No problem, we can source GTR’s (or any vehicle that is eligible for import), and ship it to virtually anywhere in the world for you.
Read 2016 ~ End of an Era for Classic Japanese Cars for more information on why prices are increasing so rapidly on GTR’s and other classic Japanese performance cars.

Rule #1: Don’t EVER buy a car unless you’ve had someone you trust check it first.
