I'm 40 next year so with a view to my pending midlife crisis i thought i'd do some planning :lol: :lol:

I have decided that after lusting after one for a long time i need some Skyline goodness in my life.
I don't really have R34 money to spend at the moment so what would be the next best thing??

Any and all info and advice gratefully recieved :wink:

I have had an R33 gtst running 400bhp :D and I cannot stress how much fun was had in the datsun, it would even wheelie on a hot day, but it was more a drift machine than a racer, even at 120mph in 4th it loved sliding,
however I blew the head gasket on the cat and fiddle road, had it repaired (£1500 for headgasket and timing set and labour) and had to get rid
before my licence was taken away plus the insurance on a grey import even with a tracker was a couple of grand.
Perhaps one day I will have another an r34 gtr nur 8) get one while you can,
Lee.
I have some pics somewhere, I will dig some out and post them up.

You've got a 2.5T haven't you?

He wasn't trying.

Unusual for an estate to be better than a saloon, why so? I know there used to be estates in the BTCC.
