2021 is finally here, which means we get a bunch of cars from the year 1996 that can be legally imported to the USA. These cars were never originally sold in America, but thanks to the 25 year law we can bring em in starting now! We’ve got cars and trucks from Japan, Europe, and even Australia. This is The D-List!
Big thanks to Jamie Orr from Orchid Euro and Sean Morris from Toprank for helping us research this episode!

  • FYI there are plenty of regular Holden Commodore SS models with LS engines or the Australian made 5L V8s for cheap here too. Though for bang for your buck it would be better value to import two late E-series Ford Falcons with the Intech 4L engine. Can get a stock auto model for like 500 USD and up. Get one, add a huge turbo, have fun at the drag strip. The V6 Commodores are also around, and use the Buick 3800 V6, so parts for it aren't totally foreign. But...eh...why would you want to?

  • Actually the Stagea is closer to an R34 then an R33. It's chassis code is WC34 and it's just under two years off the production start of the R34 Skylines anyway.

  • The TVR is pronounced Sir bur a - from Cerberus, the hell dog from the Greek mythology and called that because the head of TVR's dog took a bite out of the foam when the car was being modelled resulting in the odd shape around the front indicator - so the story goes. The MK1 Elise is OK for folks 6ft and some over that just not wide people with big guts and arses - The sill is about 2" higher than the easier to get into MK2 but you still have to double up at the waist to get in. I have to cut out the cookies for a while if I'm struggling to get in.

    • Really ???. Thanks. I thought both the 5.7/320-350/ horse/ and the 6 liter /400 horse/ were US LS engines..Yes we were able to buy BOTH in Canada and the US..The last ones were going for less than $20K with very,very low millage. I was thinking of picking one up myself..but you can only have so many cars, before your wife wants a new broom too..
