Why are Nissan GT-Rs so coveted? Why was it illegal to import them? Why did Japan build them in the first place? All that and more is covered in the excellent book, "Cult of GT-R, A Story of Crime, Obsession, and the World's Most Coveted Car". It is a detailed history of the Nissan GT-R, Japanese manufacturing, Japanese car culture, the world of import laws, and why the GT-R means so much to so many of us. The author, Ryan ZumMallen, joins us.
