Hello.
As the title states I'm a newbie from Latvia (small Baltic country in Europes North-East :) )

R33 gtst Skyline has been very long on my wishlist, and I think it is time to flush bank acount and get one.

I have noticed something that I want in classifieds section, so I'm here.

I have had passion mainly for Volvos (currently have 3 of them) and Hondas, now it's time to try some Skyline power...and to show off a bit cause there are only 3 skylines in my country:, but none of them gets driven propertly :dogpile:

Here is my first volvo 480, still have it, last year repainted but not reassambled yet:













Then fully restored 480 turbo, my baby for last 3 years...





To cut the story short:
After 3 years of work (car was on wheels less then week), there was local time attack that I decided to attend to test how the car had come out...





and the result was:





thats why black one isn't finished yet....

the car is now back on wheels...and last summer g/f used is as daily
