Anyone still driving their R32-R34 GTR's as a daily?

Recommended Posts

Hardly see any Skylines on the road in genera these days. Cannot remember the last time I saw a R32-R34 GTR on the road in Melbourne!

Are owners now just locking these away as a precious commodity?

Think most future classics go this way!  Scarey thing is what the general public think, ah....... its only a old car, probably clapped out rust bucket!

Unaware the Merc they sit in is only with a 1/4 yours! 

Most future classics end up this way, and normally for a good reason. 

Cant remember last time ive seen a celica gt4, imprezza, evo. All once very common.

I’m a weekender for sure. Went to hanging rock car show on the weekend and out of 3000 cars there were 4 r32’s and 1 r33. Like rocking horse shit now. All the boys only drove them weekends and track days.

I do see a couple r32 gt-r's that are probably someones daily. Have not seen an r33 or 34 on the road for a long time.

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.

Nissans are generally really good to take a beating and you can definitely daily them for pretty much every component except the engine, but I fixed that in a different way myself..

That said I recall a R33 GTR being sold with 550,000km on it as it was used as a daily, and you can bet that 500,000 of that km was driving on a highway making 22kw, not 550,000 track miles making 400awkw.

As others have noticed I definitely see more R32 GTR's out and about on the street than 33's and 34's which do appear on weekends pretty much.
