  1. Thanks. Say, if most of the GTRs move out of Japan to elsewhere, to Aus. for example, then the supply in our domestic market will inherently increase and we'll then become a mini Japan / home for these cars (just for the sake of saying). If this happens, then why do the prices need to be so high in the Oz market, where what's happening in Japan isn't relevant to our market to an extent. In the end, it appears that all of these prices are then being driven by US peeps who have the cash to go out of their way to get these GTRs, when the 25 year rule or whatever starts applying to these cars. Some V-Spec R34 GTRs appear to be listed at almost twice their realistic price. I think I just need to stop crying and accept the fact that I'm not going to own one ?
  2. Doesn't seem like it as far as I'm aware. I've been following the listings for a while now and almost all of them having been sitting there for numerous months. In fact, I see additional R34s and R33s coming up in the market and just sitting there trying to get their share of this over-blown bubble ? Hopefully this additional supply of GTRs at unrealistic prices will drop the demand further, resulting in lower prices. But one can only dream. Yup. Have to kinda agree with that now ?
  3. Yes, but if people are not going to buy them at those prices, the prices will eventually need to reflect the additional supply of these cars in the market (in Australia). It's a sad state of affairs when crappy / mediocre R34 GTRs with 100k + km are listed for $80k - 90k, and some even above $100k.
  4. lol @ just water pumps instead. At these prices, I can't even bring myself to invest in a decent R32 GTR, let alone an R34 GTR. The 'value/fun for money' line has been crossed by a lot now. Let's see how it goes in the next 6 months or so. Thanks for your feedback all.
  5. It's a bit sad. As much as I love them, they are going for insane prices. If people are not willing to fork out that much cash, the prices should fall down. But Japan has to lead the way first in terms of even domestic prices being reduced for older GTRs. My dream is more out of reach now - even though one might be able to afford it, it just doesn't make sense to fork out that much money - unless one has dollars growing on trees of course ?
  6. Nissan puts legendary RB26 inline-six engine back into production https://www.autoblog.com/2019/03/28/nissan-legendary-rb26-engine-back-in-production/ https://www.nismo.co.jp/news_list/2019/news_flash/19009.html?fbclid=IwAR2BDqfwLboXdRRcvl5NZ7Puq3Bzmu3ZqBiAEmXrfRSFFrD0cWtZld9ztb0 https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ja&u=https://www.nismo.co.jp/heritage_parts/&prev=search https://www.thedrive.com/news/27205/nissan-puts-its-gt-rs-famous-rb26-inline-six-engine-back-into-production As per above, is there is a chance that R32 - R34 GTR prices will reduce by a bit? At the moment, the prices of some of the GT-Rs on carsales appear to be ridiculously high and unrealistic (IMHO). Some have been sitting there for months. Is there a possibility they will ever reduce or is it just a one way street now? (Considering US import restrictions etc)
