As many car enthusiasts know, you can't privately import a vehicle without serious cost and difficulty until it reaches 25 years of age. Once it's 25, it's open season. As a result, there are a handful of 25-year-old imports floating around the U.S., and I've found a few interesting imports for sale on Autotrader. Each of these vehicles is a private, gray market import currently available here in the U.S. -- despite never being sold here originally.

1990 Land Rover Defender

1990 Land Rover Defender

Although the Land Rover Defender was sold in America for a few short years -- 1993 to 1995, plus 1997 -- interest in U.S.-spec models is very high, as are prices. As a result, the market has been flooded recently with imported Defenders like this one: a well-kept 1990 "station wagon" model, featuring right-hand drive and sold with years of successful U.K. vehicle inspection decals. Located in (or heading to) Pittsburgh, this Defender is offered for $30,000.

1989 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo

1989 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo (Right-Hand Drive)

Yes, the "Z32" Nissan 300ZX was sold in America -- but never like this. This 1989 300ZX model is a sporty 300ZX Twin Turbo -- and it touts a Japanese-market right-hand-drive configuration for an especially original feeling. Featuring a roll cage, BBS wheels and other modifications, this 1989 300ZX is available in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, from a private seller for $15,000

1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R

1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R

When it comes to imports, it doesn't get any cooler than the Nissan Skyline GT-R. While most later R33 and R34 models remain illegal to drive in the U.S., the R32 GT-R is perfectly legal. This one is tremendously attractive, featuring a series of modifications that give it an ultra-high-performance look. Located in Pelham, Alabama, where it's being offered by a private seller, this Skyline GT-R is just $26,000 -- not bad for one of the most sought-after import cars of all time.

1991 Toyota Land Cruiser 70-Series

1991 Toyota Land Cruiser 70-Series

While the U.S. market Toyota Land Cruiser continues to become more luxurious and technologically advanced, shoppers who want a "back to basics" model will likely appreciate this one -- a highly capable right-hand drive 70-series Land Cruiser, likely imported from Japan or Australia. While it doesn't have any of the modern Land Cruiser amenities (or even many of the amenities from early 1990s Land Cruisers sold in the U.S.) this truck is designed to cross any terrain -- and last forever. It's offered for sale by a private seller in Whitefish, Montana, for $24,900.

1991 Toyota Pickup with Diesel Power

1991 Toyota Pickup with Diesel Power

Pickup fans will recognize the exterior of this 1991 Toyota pickup, since it's roughly the same design as the Toyota trucks sold in America throughout the 1990s. But this one has a unique advantage: In addition to a mechanically simple (and fuel-saving) stick shift, it also boasts a turbodiesel engine for added reliability and better gas mileage. Best of all, unlike most imported Toyota pickups, it's left-hand drive -- meaning you don't have to deal with the annoyances of sitting on the wrong side of the interior. If you're interested, this truck is offered by a private seller in the Seattle area for $17,000.
