As quite a few people already know, I'm moving to pastures greener in a short while.
The Gloria is already up for sale and, unfortunately, it's time to put my pride and joy up for sale too.

I've had the car for about three and a half years now. The previous owner, a well respected member of the Skyline 'community' had totally pampered it whilst owning it. It came to me in stage 1'ish spec and bit by bit I've turned it into what is, for me at least, pretty much my dream Skyline. I have no wish to add up what has been spent on the car since I purchased it, but suffice to say it's an absolutely HUGE sum of money.
The car was featured in J-Tuner, back in issue 6 if I remember correctly, and it's certainly a fairly well known car on the scene.

However, things have and still are changing in my life so it's time for the car to become someone elses pride and joy.
Needless to say I'm gutted to be selling her.

So, to the car:-

Although I'm moving overseas, I'm not in a huge hurry to sell and am willing to hold out for decent money for the car......I think it's worth it.

I'm going to ask £27,500.....that's a lot of money, but it's a hell of a lot of car .
I'm on holiday for a week from tomorrow, but will be checking my PM's from time to time, so ask whatever you like.

Top car and a top bloke

Sorry to see you are selling the 33 mate - it's an absolute stunner (one of my personal favourites).

I'd like to wish you well in your move mate - I hope you'll be keeping in touch.

I don't like to clutter "for sale" threads ... but this truely is a top car - and I hope whoever buys it looks after it as well as Mark has.

I can vouch for this car, there are very few people around that say just do what you think is neccesary. This car has been built with no expense spared.

I will speak to anyone interested in this motor , it has all the right stuff and in my opinon the best 33 colour.

Again, cheers for all the comments guys. Am truly guted to have to sell her but don't want it to just sit for 2 to 3 years whilst I'm in Canada. :bawling:
Might well get on with another Skyline project whilst I'm away so won't be out of the scene completely....something quite different this time;)

Hi, lovely car, has she been dyno'd, wat were the results, at what revs does she come on boost, cheers,iallan.
Hi Iallan, the car has indeed been dynoed and I do have the dyno sheets here with me, however my scanner is buggered at the moment.
The car made 593.2bhp at the hubs.
It starts making proper boost (say 1bar) at about 5000rpm and is at full boost about 500rpm later :squintdance:
Despite this it is quite a useable car, particularly with the carbon clutch. I even used it to go back and forth to work for a few weeks :)
