So are there any Japanese '93 110s that could be brought in?

D90s' mostly the extra NAS that werent sold to the states.. A friend of mine bought an 03 MINT TD5 110 RHD last year for $28K....
They cant be shipped because of the bar code sticker was ripped off the left hand kickboard by LR when they shipped them here....

I can get a mint 90 for about $10k at the auction!!!

Jeez - nothing on that guy's website even approaches what I consider real pricing for those cars. What's the hook? Why so expensive? Maybe that's why he's super rich.

His car guy wanted to add my 110 to their collection for a long time but he could never pin down the boss to pull the trigger. Right up to last week he was interested. I am pretty sure they sold all the JAP trucks they had. They have one last white 97 SW but it isn't for sale.
