New to Skylines and this forum

Hi, my name is Joe and I have been the proud owner of a midnight blue R32 GT-R for a few months now. I've always had older cars and an R32 has always been the dream, so I feel very lucky to finally have one. I looked at a few standard-ish ones but ended up with what I'd like to think is quite a special one: 24U block, uprated cams, turbos and pretty much everything else. It is insanely fast but can be quite civilised and isn't all that noisy, and looks almost subtle. Anyway I could talk about it all day but will keep it short; hello!

Hi, I'm also new to the club.
I am waiting for my Skyline 33 GTR to arrive from Japan which I have ordered through Harlow Jap Autos. It's the Nismo Omori factory build one. It looks good on the pics and paper so am anticipating something special. Should be arriving within the next cuople of weeks.
I also have a 1999 Stagea RSFourS manual which is what really sold these cars to me, what a superb drive train. This was fresh from Japan so no rust. I've had since last Christmas and has been rustproofed and will continue to be re-rustproofed yearly as will the Skyline.
I also have a 20 year old Lexus LS400 which (of course) is the other end of the motoring spectrum but in common with other Jap cars, so reliable and top quality.

Heyo

Tonight has been kind of surreal. I think there is a GTR in my garage? Nah, that's crazy.. It couldn't be.

My R32 GTR was just delivered into my arms today. I'm over in the the States.

New to the jap world!
Recently had a seat Leon Cupra R, was nothing special at 210bhp but was perfect for me, big in to detailing so that's mainly what I did to it.
Decided was time for more power so was time to go for the childhood dream of owning a gtr (since first saw 2fast 2furious haha) sadly no r34 for me but a 1996 r36 gtr vspec fresh from Japan from the brilliant guys at Harlow jap autos.
Hopefully lots to come, will start my build thread shortly.
Located in Cambridgeshire and seems to have a big jap following around here.

I have to admit, I am a newbie lurker, but I do appreciate all of the information laid out on this forum about such an iconic car.

How did I first find out about the Skyline? I don't remember exactly, I believe it was through car chatter about 14 years ago from fellow friends at school. Needless to say, it was pretty cool to come across this forum.

Hi everybody ! I'm Félipé, 27 yrs old, and i come to france, near the swiss border. Ifinally bought one of my childhood dreams, a BNR32 GT-R Vspec !

The car was imported by SVA imports, it is white, original bbs rim and 54 000km... and had an R34 engine . She's also equipped with Hks coilovers, nismo upper front bar and 320 km/h cluster, ARC airbox... They are currently in the process of making the english paper so i can the be approved in france and i should recover in mid-october.

That's if you have any question, do not hesitate !

New to the forum, I have a r32 gtr and a r35 gtr. I'm currently building the 32 and this forum seemed to answer most of my questions I've had over the last several months. There are a few things I cant find info on and when I find the right place to post I will ask. Thanks!!!!

Hey everyone!

My name is Charlie, I'm an American located near lakenheath. I used to own a Gts-t about 7 years ago. had it for 2 years then left the country... and now im back! This time time i'll be looking for a GTR32 and frequenting this forum. I've been a member of SO.com for about 8 years, but have been inactive the past 6 years as I didn't own one since then.

I've owned a small collection or Japanese imports and a few baby wagons. imports include the '91 gts-t ive mentioned, '91 s13, '96 kouki s14, USDM 06 WRX, and a USDM '14 BRZ/86. Everytime I sell a vehicle, a piece of me leaves with it. All my vehicles have been well maintained and babied and sold due to life situations. My next gtr32 will be a permanent keeper as soon as I find one.

Can't wait to chat and learn from you all here!
