Great selection. The LF-A is a future classic imo.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I cannot be the first person who's thought of this. Those Skyline sedans look nice, but drop an engine from a Skyline GT-R in there and BOOM! Sleeper sedan!

You aren't... The R33 model in the pic is exactly that - the R33 Autech is a 4-door GT-R, same engine and drivetrain.

That's a promotional model? How did you get it? Did you have to test drive or buy a real car before acquiring this or what's the story behind it?

In Europe, most dealerships have a small display of models, generally in branded packaging. You can just go to a dealership and buy the model (though here in Holland you'd have a tough time persuading a sales guy to spend some time on you when you're not buying a car- maybe making a test drive would help after all)...

Joe, usually you can get models thru the parts department. For brands like Porsche and BMW its easier because they really promote them but other makers have them as well. The biggest thing is getting the part #, once you have that they can usually find them somewhere in the supply chain if its not years old.
Be prepared to pay a high tariff though.
