V.I.S.I.T. – Nissan Skyline GT-R R32

After a 45 minute commute, still barely awake and needing my daily dose of caffeine, I strolled upon this little gem of a Nissan. It’s a GT-R, more specifically an R32 generation car. Seeing actual JDM cars on the military bases I’m stationed at or visit is an occurrence that happens frequently. Still, when I’m stateside I don’t see clean example such as this one outside of car shows. Tastefully modified is the best way of describing this GT-R, since many can go over the top quite easily. The R32 GTR was revived in 1989 after Nissan cancelled the Skyline GT-R in 1973. This Third Generation model was originally conceived to homologate the GT-R into Group A racing, a series governed by the FIA and regulated for production-derived vehicles. The GT-R was so effective in race trim that turbocharged cars were banned from the 1992 Australian Touring Car Championship. With vehicles such as the R32 GT-R becoming available to the public through the 25 year NSTSA import laws, we should be seeing more and more “forbidden fruit” specialty cars arriving on our shores through authorized importers. A fine example of a well maintained GT-R stateside should it remain as is or what could be done to make it even better? [ Images: Copyright 2014 Hooniverse/Jason Connor]
