Stolen from lomo
Somewheres in timberlea I guess
And yes they are in timberlea, greenwood heights.
whoes are they again ?
Meh, R32's do nothing for me. If they were R33's i'd like them.
R32 or not I'd still love to have one. Are they street legal? I wonder what it costs for one of them? parts would likely be a bitch to get ahold of.
*shrug* The R32 is actually my favourite.
Has the cleanest, simplest, purest lines IMO. Also, it's got the same engine and just as much overall potential, in a lighter cheaper package. Seems like a can't-lose to me. But, it's all personal preference.
I almost bought an R32 GT-R earlier this year actually, but the thought of getting the ATTESA-ETS, HICAS etc. systems fixed on this side of the pacific scared me off.
A Silvia is still in consideration though.
CRX-Si: As for cost, it varies... they were CHEAP last year, but one they hit 15 years old (to the day) they are legal imports into Canada (and Australia and a couple of other countries I believe) so the cost of each car as it reaches 15 years old is spiking.
Right now, an decent GT-R can be had for about $16K once you have it into Canada... a mint one with some toys on it (like the one I almost bought earlier this year) is about $25K.
The GT-S T's like in those pictures can be had for about $8K for a nice one.
A year ago a nice GT-R was half that price.....
This guy is asking between 12-14K CAD for those.
Seen them today, they are just in so so meh condition. Definately not worthy of a 12-14k price tag that's for sure.
PS: He has 6 more in customs I believe as well, to be sold here.
What are the specs on those versions?

me and steve took some pics of these earlier tonight. they are pretty neat looking....
That guy is crazy, unless those things are in absolutely showroom condition.
The price range on GTS-T Type M's right now on ImportConcern (for example) is from about $5400 for an Auction Grade 3.0, with 46,000km on it (but it's an Auto) up to $12,500 for another Auction Grade 3.0, manual w/ 60,000km that's in Vanouver...
Does he actually think there is the market down here for that many cars? I hope he did his research...
Wow.. I'm actually tempted by this... GT-R, Auction Grade 3.0, 32,000km with a couple minor upgrades for $17,500...I even like the colour.
Where would you find replacement parts for these?
Well obviously, I'm talking locally who would you be able to get them through?
I'm sure if you made friends with the parts person at Nissan they could help you out. It was the same way at the BMW dealership, all you needed was a part number and special order it. Expensive, yep, but not impossible.
