YES YES, another car.... LOL

Me. nismotony and kevgtr collected her 2 days ago

After long thinking and looking at other cars, i decided to head back down the skyline route and go for another GTR.... I just couldn't help myself :D

Was going to buy this car 10 months ago but didn't as I bought my black one and the opportunity came up again so I decided this time to go for it. I'm not supposed to be able to drive a manual as ive trouble with my left ankle but for some reason i can manage the clutch on this car fine as its so high up. Have this rubber boot thing I put on that helps too, I couldnt get over how I could drive it but im not arguing lol. Insurance is very cheap me too and i couldn't believe it as im only 22 :D

The spec

98 R33 GTR
106k kms
Engine rebuild with genuine parts and all receipts by nissan 10k kms ago
Stock Rb26
Factory xenon headlamps
non V spec model

I bought the car from a Nissan dealer that imported the car 8 years ago, it has some form of suprious catback otherwise its bog standard. Got a really really good deal on it too....... :D

Bad point in that the heater matrix is gone, but I didnt argue as I got alot off it lol





I'll post up some better pics when the rain dies offbt:)

I'm half terrified to drive it on, in case I either break it and its just a completely different animal to the soarer, I'm gonna drive like miss daisy for a few weeks! haha :D

Welcome back to the Skyline World! That's a beautiful looking machine. What are your plans for it. Coilovers?? lol!!! Good luck with her - Hopefully you keep her. What is your insurance? You said it was cheap but your 22. Careful sometimes DVLA tend to get the Skyline models mixed up :)

Thanks man :) I live in ireland its a slightly different system, I was supposed to be buying a 03 E46 M3 but I decided to go for the GTR. The thing was that they wouldnt quote me online for any skyline until I rang them up while they would on the M3 and a 911 but I didn't know they'd match the quote for me on the M3. The car is fully decared as a Nissan skyline 2.6 GTR :D insurance is €2200 for the year which is very cheap for ireland considering our insurance is quite a bit more expensive than the UK
