    @Shunka That one too. But I do really like the one above - something about that manic look that appeals... :lol3

    Took the Skyline for a drive today. Restoration work on the outside is completed, new alarm and immobiliser installed.

    Looks fabulous and is fun to drive. Lots of boy racers tried to engage with me, but I just smiled and ignored them. The car is fast but I don't need to prove it, it looks fast and besides I want to keep my licence and the car!

    yes, we are really happy with the way it has scrubbed up. Mind you between the painting, new decals, wheels, tyres, new coils, new titanium tipped spark plugs and new immobiliser and alarm no change from 12k.

    Went for a spin around the block today (Lower Hutt over to the Wairarapa then up to the Paihatua Track and down SH1 to home). Just needed some alone road time.

    i like what you're doing here. are the blacked out wheels period correct or is it your own touch?

    i have a fireblade that i can see it being a 1 owner bike. the thought of another 20 years rego at 6 hundy/year makes me shiver.

    i heard that too :lol3.

    trouble is, it also comes with 20 points. and whilst i dont have any points currently, you cant make them go away with cash.

    the black wheels are my own touch as I couldn't get a set of original wheels. These are aftermarket GTR wheels for the R34 so I thought they would be nice on my R34 GTt

    Fortunately Rosie was just a temporary visitor.
