the true japanese classic

The GC10 skyline GT-R

If I were to EVER do a full restore of a classic car it would be one of these. they are rear wheel drive, of course, with independant rear suspension, have a 1998cc 160hp straight 6 S20 engine with dohc, and a cross-flow head.

as it turns out these cars are very expensive, I knew they were pricey but wow, a real gtr (kpgc10) can range from $35-$90k by the time it gets here… but you can also go the GT route which will get the you the same body but a different motor L20, very closely related to our 240/260/280z’s, which is nice since parts will be more readily available then the s20 rare dohc. but even these Gt versions will still run you a landed cost of $20k+… maybe less if you import your self and are frugal… but you might end up with a real POS.

maybe a datsun 510 is more up my price range 😛 or maybe I should go toyota…
