Rare Skyline Register

354 posts in this topic

Dear SAU members.

I am interested in setting seeing/contributing to an on-line registry of rare Skylines in Australia and potentially o/seas, similar to other on-line registries of rare models, and am keen to see how much interest there is with members here, and also if it is possible to make this part of the SAU site itself.

For example, there were 228 R32 N1 cars built. I know of one in Australia (mine), and I am aware that someone was trying to pass off a normal GTR as an N1 car on carsales.com.au recently. In this case it would help potential buyers to see a registry of these cars [i]e.g[/i][list=1]
[*]specifications
[*]built numbers
[*]VIN numbers of "registered" cars
[*]pictures of cars
[*]history for each car
[*]info on who owns them (subject to how willing the owners are to share than info)
[/list]Potential models included in the "Rare Skyline Registry" would be:[list=1]
[*]R31 GTS-R
[*]R32 N1
[*]R32 Nismo
[*]R34 Nur
[/list]I am sure there are some other rare models [i]e.g.[/i] wasn't there are rare R33 with higher displacement?

Ok, so what is the next steps?

I'd like to see the register as a section of SAU. It would have the following:[list=1]
[*]List of eligible rare Skyline models including history and technical specs on each
[*]Register section where owners submit details of their cars
[*]Search capability
[/list]So who wants to take the lead on getting this set up? I am happy to coordinate the information gathering, but I have no idea on how to get the SAU side of things set up.

Glenn.

Haven't met anyone else in Australia who owns one... so its sorta rare... even though it's just a late model R32 GTS non turbo with extra options.

Does my PNV rate on here?

It is 1 of probably only 2 or maybe 3 in Oz.

Does it qualify as rare???

Sorry, but Jim Richards won the ATCC in 1990 in a genuine GTS-R HR31 and I think that car is in the Terry Ashwood stables.

So I guess that makes 2 and I'm sure there is more and a quick search in R31.com will find more, I'm sure.

Something interesting about WA though.

Some time back a female opened a thread stating she had a genuine R30 GTR, but when asked for proof and photographs, we got zero response and that particular thread died a painful death.

Cheers, D

afaik, the atcc cars HR31's were bare-shells to start, no chassis number/registration numbers marking them as GTS-R's.

(feel free to correct me if you know otherwise, i jus remember readin that some time ago.)
