What can I say

I love my v8 but today I went for a ride in a R32 skyline.
The only thing I know about this car is that then engine cost this guy $60k
and its silver.
With all four wheels spinning in 4th going slightly sideways 28psi on the gauge
All I could say was.....**** me!

What ever I have will never be enough !
Fear is only Fear itself !

Sounds fun. I'd still prefer a well modified RWD V8.

Would any performance cars really get used to tow boats - you dont see many FPVs or HSVs with towbars

Re: What can I say

On the way home from calder my mates and I had some fun with a R33 GTR. It was so awesome, The guy driving was pretty cool too. He put on a nice show.
We would rev next to him and boot it in a VS SS lookalike. Our car would be flat to the floor doing about 120-130 the gtr would hang off until we were about 100m ahead then boot it and pass us like we were standing still.
It was so cool.
I want one.
