The Feds auctioned off seized JDM cars including R34 GT-Rs

The United States Treasury Department on Monday auctioned off a collection of seized JDM cars and parts—including a handful of R34 Nissan Skyline GT-Rs. But there's a catch. First spotted by The Drive, the cars appear too new to qualify for the U.S. 25-year import exemption for non-homologated vehicles.
