R33 Gtr Lm Owner's Register

Recommended Posts

Chris_H    1

Hey everybody,

After talking to a few other R33 GTR LM owners, we think it would be a good idea to try and get some kind of register going. Considering there were only 98 of these released, it would be great to see how many made it to Australia, and even how many we can track down around the globe.

To make a start, if you could add your details to the list, and copy and paste that to your post to keep it going. Previous owners feel free to join as well, just make mention of the fact you are a previous owner. Feel free to chuck up a photo of your ride too.

If anyone knows of any other R33 GTR LMs out there please send me a PM.

Cheers in advance.

I used to have one, but sold it to a bloke called Chris who took it to the other side of the country and now I never see it anymore.

Great Idea fellas, definitely one of the more rare GTR models and it would be interesting to see how many are remaining out there. Its good to see a bloke named "livewire" with a such clean looking stock example ;)

Also, I wonder if NISSAN Motor Co are looking into launching a new road going LM now that they are re-entering le man in 2015!!

It hasn't seen much road time but i assure you its in good hands. Had a lot of comments on its condition and it certainly turns heads.

Will give it a good polish soon

    HPI also once had a feature about "GTR MAN VS SUPRA MAN" involving a BCNR33 LM.

    Back issues of both the above might be able to be procured through Express Publications at Silverwater.

    There is an LM owner selling ganador mirrors in the for sale section today. That would give you another one to the list.

    Hi guys,

    I have 1 more for you to add to your list. After 2 years of enjoyable motoring a relatively small problem led to bigger ones. Now It's a long term project that I have been working on along with zealou5 here in England....well they have been working and I have been getting in the way. Please have a look at the car and the project thread below.

    Thanks

    Will

    It looks as if the liaison has now commenced!

    Are there any articles on BCNR33 LMs in the UK?

    I'll try and dig up what I have and check with Express Publications if any back issues still exist.

    By the way, HPI referred to above stands for "High Performance Imports" now renamed, "Performance Imports" magazine.

    Stay tuned to this thread Will! :)

    Not as far as I know, info is quite limited here too.

    I certainly will be keeping an eye on this one. Always after more info on the lm's and other owners experiences.
