Hi Guy. Never have popped in to see you as it years since I visited Cyprus. Unfortunately we discovered Santorini
Some friends are having a house built and moving there (or rather her husband is moving back) and so we will be visiting them (and maybe you!).
Dave: Do let me know if you're dropping by the island. Always glad to meet fellow enthusiasts.
gtrlux: Thanks! One word mate.. Teflon ;-)
Tony: Where did you dig those out from.. wow, forgot about some of those pics.. Time to get my website properly sorted out!
Rain: What car you bringing down? A friend recently registered his Nismo Kitted R34 GTR without any hassle. Cops still pull over nice cars, but are doing so less frequently. Happens mostly in Nicosia though, and they're back to stopping loud cars for the exhaust noise.
James & Nutty: Trust me. No such thing as a silent hill when it's fired up, more like rumbling volcano I bring the security guard running down every time I start it up; he thinks that the backup electricity generators have kicked in...
Bringing down a 34 too, yeah i live down in Nicosia, sucks, yeah i got a ticket for exhaust a few years back, but that was in larnica... bah stupid. well not much they will be able to do to this car, its all stock from the factory so hopefully they will not gimme any trouble.
Where about are you at in CY ? Paphos or summtin ? I know of another R34 white for sale in Nicosia near where i live...
would be interesting to see how many Skylines there are in CY i remember only about, 3..2 R32s and 1 R34 but on the north side.
Tony: Laranaka is more chilled out than Nicosia. The fashion these days is to deploy Nicosia cops to various towns to pull over cars. Of course you won't be running CY plates though...
Rain: Am in Nicosia. PM/Call me when you get here. We're looking to start a Skyline Owners Club someday.
GTRs on the island.. On the Greek Cypriot side, there are about 10-15 Genuine GTRs (mostly R33 GTRs, a few R34s and 1 R32 GT-R) and a handful of fakes (widened and all). We actually had two R33 GTRs Officially imported to Cyprus through the dealership.
On the north, there are about 2-3 R34 GTRs.
As for Skylines in general, there should be about 100-150 in total. We have some nice GTSs and GTTs running around too. I have seen pretty much every "normal" variant here, and apparently even a 400R passed through here a few years ago.
hmm well what plates are you lot running ? Visitor plates? ACuse mine was gonna be fully regged there. unless im missing something
Yeah ill give you a shout when im down there next. Tho im gonna be **** scared driving it around those roads!! haha.
PS: ok off topic but, are you Cypriot or English just living down there ?
Oh yeah and where do you guys get your work done, on the cars i mean, cause last time i was there i was hard pressed to find one local mech that i felt confident handing over my car to, and that was just a shite hatchback
