1988 Nissan Laurel Fire Service Car

Cars from 1988 are now starting to be 25 years old, and legal to import to the US. How is this for a weird one. A 1988 Nissan Laurel Fire Service car.

Sweet plastic on the seats. Roof mounted siren and light round out the package.

In the United States vehicles over twenty five years old are Department of Transportation (DOT) exempt from meeting federal motor vehicle safety standards(FMVSS).  At over twenty one years old cars are Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) exempt.  To meet California smog exemption requirements, the car must be older than 1976. To have a newer car meet California requirements, it is more expensive, and sometimes very difficult to comply.


International Vehicle Importers is now working with a company in Japan, R- International, which gives you direct access to Japanese car auctions.  Sign up on their website, for a free preview of the dealer auctions. There are thousands of cars daily available at auction.
