UPCOMING EVENTS

The one that will be missed. Nissan R32 GTR

2

A couple of years ago I was able to get my hands on a 1989 R32 GTR from a friend of a friend. It wasn’t the cleanest of cars but the engine was strong, the body was straight and everything electronically worked well. It was one of the cars I’ve always wanted growing up. Im definitely going to miss this car as owning it in the US, especially California, is very difficult. A good friend of mines had his taken away from him and it just wasnt worth the headache of it happening to myself.

I started looking up parts as I usually do when picking something like this up. I wanted it to be a great street car with some rare parts on it like the pair of Garage Defend Stingray Canards you can see on the front bumper. I think those canards was the best thing I added on the car and it made it look special. From the rear I added some LED tail lights. The standard ones looked old and faded. A cusco strut brace and a radiator cooling plate dressed up the engine bay. I also added some coilovers and some Weds. Interior wise, I installed some Recaro’s and a steering wheel.

Here’s a shot of it with Brooklyn stoked. If I find more photos of it, Ill definitely update this post.

  1. I have been working with and around the Nissan Skyline GT-R for a lot of years. You can have legal US cars, but it costs a little more money, and it took a little more time than all the cars that were illegally imported. Next year, August 2014, the 1989 R32 GT-R turns 25 years old and it will be NHTSA exempt. They are already over 21 years old and EPA exempt. California has its own EPA so that part is a little more difficult, but not an impossible task.

    First off, this car is gorgeous. I’ve always been a huge fan of the GT-R, probably my favorite car legacy ever. But, if I’m reading the article correctly, are you implying that you are getting rid of it? I understand that the vehicle laws in California are horrific based on different articles I have read and TV shows I’ve watched, but I never imagined that a car could actually be taken away from someone! I send my condolences! Would you be trying to liquidate the car out of state or the country? I’m just curious! Cars are family, the time and work you put into a car is truly an expression of yourself. Again, awesome car, just curious about the future of it!
