Yeah but the R32 is the original one I saw, some fifteen years ago, and the very reason that I'm here, now!!

i like the 33 over the 32.the 32 looks well dated against a 33.i have seen a couple of 32`s that i thought looked the biz a black 32gtr and some of the race type ones look ok. the 33 looks more up todate not as wild looking as a 34 but still looks great.

is there much difference in weights for a everyday owner to notice.what weights are all the standard gtr`s

think my fave is the 34 in anyother colour than blue

Poll looks pretty even eh, hehe!

I have to admit that the R33 was my favourite of the three (or two at the time) for years. It seems to me that it's still probably the sleekest of the GTR's (anyone know the drag co-efficients of these three?).
My opinion has changed in the last couple of years and particularly when I started looking into buying a GTR and saw a few close up. The R32 is now my firm favourite..... I know, I'm biased cause I bought one but then I'm sure most of the replies on here are too .
I love the aggressive lines on the 32, it's not the prettiest of cars but it isn't trying to be. Just lower it a bit and maybe put some bigger wheels and it looks ready to go out on track and gobble up cossies and M3s .

Don't get me wrong though, if I won the lottery I'd have one of each (+R34 too )!!!

I've never seent his poll run so close - it's almost 50/50.

Obviously what you really want is an R34 Z-tune , but like most of the rest of us, it's probably out of your reach.
Give it 10 years & we will all be fighting over them.

Having said that, most of the top project cars at the moment seem to be R33s.

I prefer the R32, perfected the old-skool look without appearing embarassingly 80's. It is the first Skyline with the RB26DETT engine which is well ahead of its time. It is the right size, not too long or wide (unlike the 300ZX and Supra barges)

R33 is a nice car, but looks "heavy" and sometimes the jelly bean styling cues (a bit like the shamefully ugly MKIV Supra) just takes away from the car's aggressiveness.

well if you want to get into that:

I think you will find most of the top project cars are evo's and scoobys...

The point being though even they and the "barge like" 33 project cars pail into insignificance next to Keith and his R32. Go figure..... Ron K is doing pretty well too.

Out of interest, how many 33's have dipped into the 9's in the europeon scene?

It looks like there is going to be some serious cars on the scene. Very exciting. Cant wait to see the sumo R33 in action if the 34 was anything to go by.

I have had both an R32gtr and an R33gtr and i can say for definate that you can immediatly feel that the r32 is a lighter car and seems to have sharper handling.

I prefer my R32 for the driving expirience but the R33 for the better looks (if it looks like daveW's and is done nicely then there is no argument there)

The hard part is finding an R32 in perfect condition but also you can get a stage 2 32gtr for the price of a stage 1 33gtr which is a bonus !

Both have good and bad points but i think that the poll shows everything and that it is a hard one to call !

R32 for me (but only just).... Lighter, and i prefer the styling IMO it's abit more understated than the r33 in standard form.. R33 a still great car though.

Wink

do the supermarket car park challenge and you will get ya ansa!

parked my r33 gtr v-spec up next door but one space to a fairly modded r32gtr @ asda
on return, saw small group of teenagers hanging around my car pointing etc. i held back for a few moments out of sight to see if they noticed the 32. yes , they did but dismissed it.
i went over. they asked the usual ?`s how fast, 0-60, bhp etc. i asked what they thought of the `32 - nice but old fashioned one commented, another asked if it was a someting else with a skyline badge on it? he he he.
they all agreed the 33 is THE skyline - coolest, wicked, sorted, awesome - usual teenager stuff. - can i have ride? (not bloody likely).
dont get me wrong - i think all skylines are the muts, but everyone i have asked (who does not own a skyline) thinks it is one seriuosly cool car and by far the sleekest looking - (girls espacially ;-))
ps. it also drives like a dream.
i know its not all about the "looks" but i get convinced everyday by the "general public - friends etc) that i bought the right one.
although, if i could afford a 34??????
