Post R32 Nissan Skyline GTR Detail
This was just a wash, claybar, and wax, but Im happy with the results and thought id share some pics as its such a rare car. I cant begin how to explain how neglected this car has been its entire life, and its finally in the hands of someone who is going to restore it. It sat in a port over in Japan for 5 years before being brought over to the states. The paint felt like 500 grit sand paper when doing the bag test.

Awesome car! I want to put a skyline motor in my Datsun. That way I stay inline 6 but have some power to go with it. Why was that car sitting in dock for 5 years? Which motor is in it? Is it AWD or RWD? Awesome job!

It has the RB26DETT motor and is AWD. It has cams and has a top mount Apexi twin turbo kit. 18 psi. 436 awhp pump gas.

Im not sure why it sat at port for so long. But I think these cars have alot of title issues because of the vin differences from japan to the states. Im not sure if that has anything to do with it or not. But we pulled some carpet in the trunk area and it is going to need some patching, weather stripping, and rear rockers repaired. It does only have 30k miles on it. Its definately weird to see him driving on the right side! I told him to go for a job with USPS. :)

Love the R32, think it was the best looking one. the R34 was just too gaudy. Nice detail!

That ain't nothing, I heard Bob Z. is going to import a Peugeot to Lake Wynonah from France! :woohoo

Anybody who would import a Skyline from Japan to Danville should be on this forum.

You are incorrect Steve, he is importing a mint 1985 Merkur XR4Ti from the Czech republic
