    Fun Fun Fun Til The Policeman Takes Your Licence Away — Great fun car and enough headroom for adults to sit in back. Maroon is the best colour. Why did I sell it, cos I have a company car and wouldn't get to use it. The only good thing about my Camry is it's red.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Adrenaline

    Cons: You want to have a drivers licence

    Pros: challange to drive, not sure whats it going to do at each corner

    Cons: it is a large car

    Good Fun R33 — Performance is great, has an awesome power out put, had it over 200km/h and still got a lot of juice left! Cant find a road long enough. Needs a new dash so i can read past 180km/h! Needs a couple touch ups on the body.... KURT? Interior is perfect. Has a power F.C and is great for drifting!

    Pros: Great fun to drive and reliable so far..... touch wood!

    Cons: Its not an R34!

    Nissan R33 Gts-25t Sedan — Bought this car as first Australian owner. Interior was perfect with only minor wear. Steering wheel has been re-trimmed in Japan and indicates that the mileage is much higher than indicated. Rather than a negative, this just increases awareness of the build quality of this vehicle. Engine very strong and not too bad on petrol. Build quality far in excess of Australian made car, parts not as expensive as expected. Excellent drivers car with 4 door practicality.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Needs even more power...

    Skyline (spec 2) Gts T 1996 — Very able and capable car with a silky smooth 2.5 turbo (garrett). The most tuneable car in the world! Remove the silly two stage boost system & enjoy full boost at low revs! Mental! Advise fitting better cooling and oil cooler if uprating the BHP to over 300. Expensive on fuel when driven hard but who cares?! It's so enjoyable to drive!

    Pros: Excellent car with attention wherever it goes!

    Cons: Running costs (fuel)

    The Best Car You'll Never Own — I don't know why Nissan never brought this car to the US officially. If it did, it would have made a killing for sure. It was a car whos performance set the bar for all others, and beat them in both price and reliability. The Skyline GTR has an inline six 2.5 liter engine with twin turbos powering an intelligent AWD system similar to the Audi quattro. the rb25 engine was so durable, many tuners acheived 1000hp without extensive modifications, but 500 or more were easily obtainable by most. Various models of the Skyline, including sedans, 2wd versions, and even a wagon were sold in Japan from the early 90s to 2002 with model designations of R32/R33 and R34 chronologically. All skylines were right hand drive,complicating their sale outside japan and europe. My car and other were brought to the US and modeified to comply with federal motor vehicle safety standards by a company named Motorex, which has since gone out of business due to improprieties involving the import process.The DOT has since rescinded import eleigability for all Skylines, and with Nissan's upcoming debut of the new GTR, it seems unlikely any more will reach US shores legally

    Pros: Super fast. Ultra collectable. Like nothing else on these shores...

    Cons: Like nothing else on these shores. every ricer kid will want your emblems. if you think parts for an Alfa Romo are hard to get...
