Haha thanks. Yes it's genuine and was the first one to be imported to Greece(the red lettered plates show that its an import). My folks bought the car from Denmark then had it trucked there. I think the Minister of Defense had the second one when they came out back in 91. Even today the only other GTs in Greece are p11s and theyre all Police cars!

No its In Greece actually about 15 min outside of Athens. That road is very popular amongst streetracers there. Its called "Limanakia" which pretty much means "small coves" It is the route that WRC cars had to drive to get to the Stages of the Acropolis rally!!! Just imagine Colin Mcrae in his 555 impreza and Carlos Sainz in his Celica goin balls out to make the deadline for check in!!!!

Its the reason i got into cars. ITs where I learned to drive.

PS If you want to know exactly where I was just google map "Vouliagmeni" and ull see the coastal road

I think you can import one.

Just say its a show car or race car and ud be able to ship it without it being cut in half. Of course ud never be able to drive it on the street.

Or you could just buy one in Japan ship it already chopped in a container, then u just swap all the parts onto your G

Or you can wait till the car is 25 years old then you can do whatever u want.

Nice p10 and imprezza.
Thanks. The Nissan needs some body work and new wishbones up front. then maybe Ill see about a motor swap. Id like to do a GTI-R swap but I have to find a mechanic who can do that kind of work first! As for now its just a stock Red-top with an Intake.

You can legally import one if you can demonstrate that the US has an equivalent model.

I've heard that too. But my Subaru mechanics say it cant be done and they ship imprezas routinely from Japan. Thats why they ship all the cars already chopped and just swap all the parts onto a US car. They also do RHD conversions! Unfortunalely I dont think it would pass smog in CA either. It would be a dream come true though if I could have that car here!

As far as the restoration side of things is concerned. I have to thank Schwen for providing the highest quality used parts I have ever come across. He is a godsend to say the least! So far I have received front and rear bumpers and fogs, a dash in mint condition, new tail lamps and A piller trim with tweeters. I am having the headliner re-covered in grey leather and replacing the peeling door card fabric with black leather. Also fabricating my own wiper blades for the headlamp wipers. Then there's the leaky sunroof. I was not a matter of clogged drain tubes but a deteriorated seal. Decided i would tackle that myself rather than pay $550 for a whole new glass. this involved pulling the whole sunroof out of the car, removing the trim around the glass. I then ran a bead of Sikaflex urethane Marine sealant around the glass and reinstalled the trim.
