Are Nissan Skylines and Toyota Supras Illegal in the US?

For any car to be sold in the U.S., it must pass certain federal mandates. Emissions and crash testing.

Car decals?

Any manufacturer who wishes to sell in the U.S., must pass these tests for the vehicle to be sold here.

If your driving in a car going faster then the speed of light..?

One example, Chery Cars from China, wanted to import vehicles here, but it wouldn't pass U.S. crash standards, so they didn't bother and will maybe wait till the next generation IF they pass our standards.

Car Metal Fatigue?

In the case of the Pontiac GTO, it's really an Austrlian Holden Monaro. In Australia, their crash standards require that the frontal structure of the vehicle be VERY rigid (for Kangaroo/animal collissions)... As in, "No Crumple Zones", like they are required in the U.S. So for GM to import that vehicle into the U.S., they had to "soften" some parts in the frontal crash section, and remove a piece or 2, to make it compatible.

Ignition keys with a chip are too large to carry around?

Registration Requirements for Home-Made, Specially Constructed, or Kit Vehicles
A "home-made, specially constructed, or kit vehicle" is a vehicle that is built for private use, not for resale, and is not constructed by a licensed manufacturer or remanufacturer. These vehicles may be built from a kit, new or used parts, a combination of new and used parts, or a vehicle reported for dismantling (junked) that, when reconstructed, does not resemble the original make of the vehicle that was dismantled.
