    Alright, so I'll do this

    Started off the year still in this:

    Sold the Pulsar and bought this:

    Traded that Skyline for this:

    *THEN* traded the Genesis for this (which I never made a thread for):

    1995 Skyline GTS2.5t
    Gramlights/D2 coilovers/Whiteline sways/HKS intake and exhaust/DEFi HUD/ect

    Now, I've just sold the R33 and am currently trying to make a decision...2013 should be fun

    inspection would be a motherfucker....15 years and newer have to go through OBD and the new computers are smart as hell...although I was just looking at an S401 Legacy, super pretty car

    but to be "responsible", 1998 or older only

    Evo V is high on the list

    I liked the first skyline better. Still way more cool cars than I could ever hope for.

    190 E ? 190C !


    And there are a few Quattro Turbos in the US. My friend has one (For sale in CT). Grey. Beautiful. It's an AUDI mess in the design arena, but whatever.

    And if there are 2 cars in the US, apparently Eric will find it. And buy it. Or both.

    190e cosworths are all over the place lately....and they're dogs



    I'm not learning how to chase electrical nightmares for moths at a time which seems to go hand in hand with owing an old euro car...also the lame allen head bolt thing doesn't fly with me, had 2 VW's and they both sucked. I agreed to the 135i because it was new/warrantied for 100k but the X5 was bought under protest...and the euro crowd is extremely douchy around here


    Japanese cars 4 lyfe

    I agree with you on the euro garbage thing. And of course the electrical sucks : This is a european trait.

    Have you experienced a Cosworth head yet ? It's worth it.

    The euro crowd is douchy down here too.

    I would stay away from anything euro just for that reason.

    Eh, not a huge concern

    Even if someone was stupid enough to attempt getting in my garage I'd be awake and able to go to the kitchen, eat a donut, have a glass of milk, and still be able to stroll out and catch the dummy before they got the car out of the garage....not including locking the car doors and keeping the key someplace safe there's no less than 5 other security measures

    Also I have insurance.....the good kind

    *and* these "jdm" cars don't have VINs displayed on the dash...makes it a little harder for the asswipes w/buddies at dealerships to make a key

    covering your VIN plate is the easiest thing you can do to keep your car safe.

    We're not talking Hondas. These are REAL cars.
