Before there was the 2009 Nissan GT-R there was the Skyline, and if you wanted one in this country you had to go through an importer called Motorex. The problem was, the company didn't do what it was supposed to: import cars, convert them to DOT spec and then deliver them to customers. Sure, some cars got delivered, some cars even got converted, but most failed to do either. Until now, the full details of the Skyline's disastrous entry into the US market were the stuff of Internet legend. Now, thanks to 0-60, we know the facts behind the Motorex's myth, the government investigation and the repossessed cars. Check out the feature in the magazine's summer issue, available now. [0-60]
