  1. Can’t speak to what they’re actually trading hands for but it’s all relative with the GTR tax...either way, gone are the days of the decent condition GTS-T for 8-9k.
  2. Remember all those “what car should I buy” questions I responded to with R33 GTS-T https://www.carsales.com.au/cars?q=(C.Make.Nissan._.(C.Model.Skyline._.Badge.GTS-T.))&sb=~Price lmao
  3. I’m in the same boat with an R33 GTR...so I know the financial burden gentrification of the classic vehicle creates...nonetheless, that’s an incredibly first world problem to have 😉
  4. A market can’t really be dumb...cars are simply worth what someone is willing to pay. But someone can definitely be upset at the market when they can’t afford what they want
  5. Thanks Neil. Makes sense, making clearance for the intercooler. I run a return flow so the benefit would probably be strictly aesthetic. Are they meant to bolt in place of the factory one using the bracket or require proper install?
  6. Hi Neil - curious about the Greddy washer bottle. What’s the purpose? Just to allow deleting or rear washer / ditch the factory bottle or does it help when setting up an intercooler water sprayer? Cheers
  7. Ironically those new Supras will only help the MK4 in the same way the R35 does the R34...won’t be long until they’re worth more! Hell even Toyota Soarers in good condition are getting up there. Only one manual upon carsales, for 25k...
  8. States are no doubt driving up our prices - wouldn’t surprise me if Americans snapped up the 34s we had here for sale. Love your nickname by the way!
  9. No 34 GTRs on carsales...snapped up by investors/collectors? The humble R33 GTS-T is a 20k+ affair for a decent manual example, as R33 GTRs move to a 60-80k average. Crazy times for the cars we used to nonchalantly cruise around in!
  10. I have house, baby, GTR, GTS-T AND 88E banks hate him
  11. Check out Scotty if he’s still doing fabrication work
  12. It should be robust as spec stocks generally trade on futures. Never made sense to me that current prices of oil affect so immediately the share price of a “one day hopeful” explorer. Lamenting not having sold at 2.6 and bought back in low, but ya just never know with these things. One thing I do know is 1.6 is frikken cheap so I bought a parcel today. But yes, ASX is a blood bath. Great time to buy blue chips for guaranteed small returns. A2 milk is a pretty safe bet for bounce back as there’s no slowing that company in the long term. Will be $20 before the year end.
  13. I still drive my GTS-T daily. I’ve plans to drive my 33R daily at some point (haha). With Nismo remanufacturing components, the support would technically be there for driving classics on the road without as much worry about breakage...but I’m guessing those who are paying the dollars being asked for such examples can afford more than one car or something luxurious, or want something more comfortable as a daily. Personally, I can’t deal with driving boring cars in the daily. Every day the drive is interesting.
