Article originally appeared on gearjunkie.com for those who might want to look it up. This is not a good sign of things to come.

Datsuns were produced specifically for non domestic sales, so realistically we have nothing to fear on that particular front.

Agreed. The SPL/SRL roadsters were legally produced for export and imported as such. Unlike 'JDM' imports.

Shell petrol is going to cut production 1-2% a year every year, so hiperf rides will surely suffer / be taxed
