the only time i'd want to go rhd is if i had an import and wanted to a complete jdm conversion. but its not even legal here anymore to drive a rhd car. i forget the specifics. but i feel bad for the guys who paid so much to have their skylines and other cars imported here.

WHAT? maybe cali because they suck in general with all vehicles but no issues here in MI...

btw all mail trucks are now illegal? lol funny people in rural areas here in MI have private vehicles with the conversion to deliver mail... also friends of ours have imported antique cars that drive them all the time RHD...

no its a nevada thing. mail trucks will still obviously be okay.

but i believe privately owned vehicles here can't be rhd. some stupid ****. i know theres loopholes and whatnot. i've never read up a ton on it.

i think it has a lot to do with the DOT safety standards and whatnot since that stuff most likely isn't approved. idfk who knows. i just know there was a large uproar about it on a bunch of local import car forums.

not true.

I tuned a customers jdm galant vr4 about a year ago.

A gentleman a few blocks down the street from me has a rhd jeep.

I have a friend in NY (where I come from) who I helped swap a silvia front clip on his 240.
