Before I bought the R32 GTS-t a couple of weeks ago, I honestly had no idea what sort of car I would end up with over here.
Why get a Skyline of all things? Why come to Japan just to get a car easily available back in my home country? This is the land of exotic JZX100 four-doors and a AE86 maniac’s dream. While this is true, they are still as proportionally expensive here as they are back home, and there are other reasons not to buy the dream car too early.
After consulting various drivers, workshops owners and friends, the majority of recommendations fell upon buying either an S14 Silvia or an AE86.

So why would someone throw away a job, nicely sorted drift car and apartment close to the city just to go to Japan and drift an almost standard R32 GTS-t around some rough track in the middle of the countryside? Can it be summed up by a single grainy photo?

While Toyota was firing up their more prestigious Formula cars opposite the Nissan stand, the people’s favourite Skylines easily drew a crowd with the Nissan team’s comprehensive exhibition.
Even though this Hakosuka is worth about as much as a new BMW M6, there were no barriers keeping you from getting right up close. I saw at least a couple of people walk past it and brush the buckles of their backpacks against it though.
