finally got my car

well after being on this forum for a while, i developed a love for the e-series. but today i bought an 1989 r31 skyline for $3700. i realised a high school student with no job wasn't suited to a falcon, especially in the city. it was the right price at the right time, so hey why not. this thing flies and i love it, but sadly, i won't be joining the club which ive been willing to sign up for, for a while now. just have to wait, maybe the day will come. the skyline does have ford floormats though!

hehe good to hear mate. Congrats on the purchase, that sounds like a good price. The R31s are excellent all round cars. Any pics?

Re: finally got my car

Congrats on the purchase! The R31 is a great car, with decent performance and economy. What model is it? Silhouette, TI or one of the lower spec ones? Is it a series III with the better looking front and hot plate tail lights?

By the way, sorry for all of the questions. Have fun with it mate.

Re: finally got my car

You cant go wrong with the nissan stuff. If you really wanted to play with it later on you caan throw a RB25DE head on it for a little bit of xtra power and then of course you could get the the turbo variant of the motor or do both... quite a lot of possibilities with these cars.

Re: finally got my car

My sister would of sold you her R31 a fair bit cheaper than that, and it's a TI (or whatever the luxo burge is).
