These are not even the actual Nissan Skyline GT-R's. A real 1972 KPCG-10 - Nissan Skyline GT-R, of which only 515 were made, trade hands for around $100,000 in Japan. 

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. If the car is newer than 25 years old, it still might be possible to import it under the Show or Display exemption.
