Nice, that ^^^

Might be heresy, but I always thought the R33 was the best-looking of the later GTR generations
Cheers smile me too, the R33 is the most balanced design to my eyes. All three are pretty sweet though clap
Concur with the above, but if you look online nobody likes the R33 and nobody likes HICAS. I adore both and hopefully one day I can get a GTR to compliment my GTS-T biggrin

Mine again, with new front bumper - gives a lower slung look and more fast road than rally but smiley faces here!

That's gorgeous mate. I do love an RX7 cloud9

Here's a recent pic of my old banger, now with new wheels & brakes. Still only running 320bhp as needs another mapping session.

Hi, and tbh I have no idea how, being into cars for so long, I've not posted on PH before. Anyway, I'm a long-time Jap import fan and I'm on my third now.
So, in chronological order (don't worry, this won't be a long post!):

Bought my first Skyline in 2002, a 1994 series 1 GTST:


2004 and I added some aero. Very pleased with my fitting and spraying etc. (all done in a barn):


2010, Skyline no.1 had unfortunately succumbed to rust back in 2007 and sat unloved in a workshop until it became a donor vehicle for Skyline no.2; this identical '96 rolling shell I bought for £500:


2011 Skyline no.2 is on the road:

(yes, that's a GTS badge tongue out)

2016. By this time I'd got the sports car thing out of my system. I was bored with every polo/corsa wanting to race me so decided on some quiet, comfortable (and equally uneconomical) luxury in the form of this 2003 Nissan Elgrand E51 Rider. Eight seats, full leather, electric everything, this bus is awesome with it's VQ35DE engine:

(the rusty green K11 Micra is the daughter's now and doesn't warrant a picture, however, it's probably the best £350 I've ever spent!)

Do you not get any tax concessions for LPG over there?

In the last year and just over 20k we haven't had any real problems at all, (With the exception of a lambda sensor) Brilliant machines and so well screwed together.
