"Wonder if anyone still has one they purchased new"?

Hmmm, well mine was born in 1997 and was got by me in 1998 with 3.5kms on the clock as a repossesion. So that's probably as close to owning from new as we are going to get

Gosh no far from it.
I've had the car 2 years, got it from mgt racing as a restoration project.
It's had more owners than I've had hot dinners lol.
Think you must be one, if not the longest owner.

If you give me a week or so I maybe able to get the list of cars sold and registration numbers;

I have 3 cars in the yard at Abbey at the moment that are UK 33GTR's.

I also know of 3 that arent with us any more , 2 damaged by the same person as well.

Michael wrote 2 off whilst I knew him Mark, the third went on to be the first OSG3.0 in the UK.

The 20 cars that Middlehurst brought into the country are import cars via personal import and not UK or UK spec cars. As far as I'm aware they were sold without a Nissan UK Warranty too.

I think you meant 'isn't' Mark and I would tend to agree.

R34 thread doesn't use the reg as far as I know, just the number in the series.

We have had this reported to us and we were pondering it, what's the real risk nowadays? It's a fairly old car and there's not a lot of them about....there are registrations all over the 'net from car show photos. Thoughts? It's repeated so many times we'll have to delete the thread and it start anew...

Moleman wrote one a silver one off at the ring didn't he? He also currently has a Blue one too I think?

Re: reg numbers, I personally wouldn't give them out, but the rest of the details are OK I think

Right then REG NUMBERS REMOVED.


OP by all means put up a list of colours and numbers, as per the UK R34s thread, but please take registration numbers out, I'll be deleting any posts that contain them.

I agree that's why I didn't put mine up just the old one lol.
All we really need is a list of vin numbers and if they are still alive.
Original Colour would be interesting to know but not that important.

Firstly, I'm really sorry if I caused offence to anyone on here. I only started this topic because I've been an enthusiast of the R33 GT-R for years and I wanted to have a true list of all the UK BCNR33 cars, their colours, the dates they were registered in the UK and finally which ones were known to be still alive after sixteen years only. Nothing more sinister I promise you. For this I can only apologise!

This next bit is specifically for the mods on this forum....

Again I didn't mean to be so controversial but I'm afraid you will have to become very busy indeed now because at least nineteen of the registrations I posted up were taken from pictures on this very GT-R forum! The others either came from Japanese motoring magazines or sites like eBay and Pistonheads. I don't know how you can control and edit out the plates on these sources?

If I'd posted other peoples pictures like this below :-



then yes I could totally understand people getting upset because that image above was not taken by me and does not belong to me but when I was only using the registration from a photo like this that already exists on the world wide web....Is it really that dangerous that so many of my posts had to be deleted?

I see this current situation as almost the same as a Celebrity who constantly shares their lives with the public on media like Facebook or Twitter, wanting nothing but admiration and praise from folks only for the Celeb to then get really upset and demand privacy when others are interested and start talking about them!

JM2PW!:(

No offence is taken by me to you Mods Mookistar, I know you've only got a really tough job to do on here and why such actions were done. Its the double standards of the folks who post stories, pic's and vid's of these cars all over the interweb who then got the nerve to complain about the danger that their car is on a list they didn't write that utterly confuses me.....:rolleyes:

I sort of agree, the cars are all over as photos already, but it was reported so we had to deal, sorry.

These came with the UK R33, well mine did anyway...


Note the Max Power magazine from 1997 that got me interested in the Skyline from my 300ZXTT!

Only 4 colour options...
