I know of an FBI agent who can help you get those out of the impound. His name is Brian O'Conner

While it sucks that they're losing their cars, the bottom line is the broke the law to bring them here. They're lucky they're not facing jail time in addition to impounds and fines.

Ariel Atom owners were using the same trick to register their cars for the street as well.

They didn't really break the law... they just found a nice little loophole

So ridiculous. Why doesn't the gov concentrate on healthcare and nukes in north korea instead? Does having a few skylines in the country really affect much?!

Some of the Skyline owners here in Vegas have had their registration taken from them, but they didn't take their cars. My friend also has a registered R33 that he drives everyday. He has been pulled over a few times, but his is legally registered as a Skyline so they let him go everytime..
