Hey everyone!

I've been the proud owner of a 1995 Skyline GT-R Vspec for almost a year and I'm approaching a time where I can start upgrading and customizing the car to my liking.  I also have had to repair a few things on the car including my current problem with the driver side window regulator.  I'm and American currently living in Japan.  When I move back to the states, this baby is coming with me.  I'm hoping to learn more about these cars and share what little I do know with the group.

Thanks!

Stunningly stereotypical parked in front of Japanese Cherry Blossums!

Do us all a favour and send a container full of parts will you!

I'll happily send a container full of parts, if you send me a container full of money, haha.  Parts here are EXPENSIVE!  I was told that Skylines were pricey but, wow, I didn't expect to be paying $430 for a window motor and $150 for a single trunk support shock.  

I had to get at least one stereotypical cherry blossom photo shoot in.  The train zooming past in the background was a bonus.  :-).

Yeah that train has all the people on it that 5 years said Skylines would never be worth anything 😂😂😂

I watched a video on car prices in Japan yesterday and it seems that finally they’ve realised they’re sitting on a gold mine!  Prices are skyrocketing there too. 

As a bonus I guess at least we can still buy brand new parts!

Hey. Your Nissan looks chic. Road beast. Remember the movie "The Fast and the Furious"? That's where Brian was the same.

I really wish I had been here about 4 or 5 years ago.  Then I could afford the R34 I actually wanted.  Now? Not a chance.  $60K+ for a 20 year old car is a huge pill to swallow.

I suppose we have Fast and the Furious to thank for that haha.  

Thanks for the compliments.  I spent quite a bit of time trying to find one with as few mods as possible.  After going to the Tokyo Auto Salon a couple of weekends ago, now I'm burning to do some upgrades haha!
