2021 is finally here, which means we get a bunch of cars from the year 1996 that can be legally imported to the USA. These cars were never originally sold in America, but thanks to the 25 year law we can bring em in starting now! We’ve got cars and trucks from Japan, Europe, and even Australia. This is The D-List!

  • You made an error with the 96 HSV, they used a 'stroked' Holden V8. Holden's, including HSV's didn't use LS1's until 1999.

  • Glanza are beautiful. I have one for 10 years now. If you can, get one, you're gonna love it. It really is fast. You hear about 400hp+ starlets but that's overkill. If you ever get one of these, set it to 250 hp with a stiff suspension and a rear strut bar. Its all you need for a race car. It is THAT amazing

  • The Holden GTSR was laughed at when it came out. Just a POS commodore with FE2 suspension and 215kw...other HSV cars at the time had the same power output. Still absolutely hideous, but like any car from the period suffers from ridiculous nostalgia inflation.

  • @10:20 theyre cheap for the same reason stealths and 3000 gt's are cheap, which is the engines propensity to spin bearings and cause damage that basically makes the engine a big ol paperweight. Or car weight, or whatever. The bottom line is that engine is the japanese version of the northstar or bmw v10. Its not a matter of IF they will kersplode, but a matter of WHEN itll kerspode when the bearings fail. Which is why not too many stealths and 3000 gt's are on the road anymore. Theyd just go ka-boom one day and the $6000 repair estimate broght the vast majority of them to the crusher. Id personally avoid anything with that engine that hasnt been rebuilt with better bearings.
