I think it was 2001 but could be wrong.
Suppose the reason the skyline has become more popular is that the R32 is old and the 2.0 turbo is handy to insure. Can pick oue up to a few grand now. R33 are still a rare enough sight and the R34 is even rarer cause of the fact of the price and that they are generally 2.5 turbo as the base model so not easy to insure
it was me who had the soarer mate. ye it was an auto too. wudnt mind that though, it was well able for sideways action, wet or dry wit a tip of the throttle. and it would do rings all day long, well as long as the tyres would last!! popped one or three sets back in the day!
im mad for another one, maybe manual this time . . .
