    When he was talking about wheels I thought he was going to say 4 wheel steering

        They're giving away a clean 06' Impreza WRX STI this winter. I literally just entered the raffle a week ago. My purchase counted for 25 entries, wish me luck 👏

          My 1993 Nissan NX2000 FWD 2 Door T-Top Hatchback with a 5 speed SR20DE+T (+T I put in a turbo kit and tuned computer) is another pretty rare car in the US. The handling is on par with the Mazda Miata - balanced and is a beast on Auto X. In other countries it's called the 100NX I believe. @Tavarish - Have you ever driven one or seen one? I love the old nissans! Oh and the NX2000 is pretty close to the Nissan Sentra SE-R of the era. Thank you for doing this video on the Skyline!

            The Godzilla nickname was started by Wheels magazine here in Australia when Nissan officially imported them in very limited numbers and sold for 110k. Grey Import GTRs here were once available for less than 20k, unfortunately for me a good one is worth between 50k-80k now. The officially imported cars are very rare to see for sale and they are back to basically their original asking price

              The R32 is the godzilla. The previous versions did not get that title

                I think most people, or young people, won't understand why Tavarish is talking excitingly about a late 80s to early 90s car having full electronic options as standard. That's because this WASN'T standard for American cars, full electronic options during this time in the USA was considered LUXURY standards. That was one way how Nissan and other Japanese car manufactures could break into the Western markets by offering Lux as Standard on specific model cars.

                  I know a guy that was a real GTR motorhead when we lived in Japan in the 90s and early 2000s. He had this exact model year in the same color. I just bought him a GTR coffee cup for entry into the giveaway. We'll see if he wins the car too. Remote chance, but I'm sure he'd be happy AF if I handed him a GTR coffee cup with a set of GTR keys in it.

                    Great content! I’d like to see your videos be a bit shorter for those with short attention span (me). You be you, not Doug Demuro...

                        Wrong: R33 has the SAME 5 speed tranny as the R32 GTR. ONLY the R34 GTR was ever offered with the V160 Getrag 6 speed

                            Fantastic video overall. Great job on info for anyone not knowing anything about an r32. I just gave the down payment for my 94 bayside blue r32. I live in California, so I get to wait many months for C.A.R.B. Certification. I actually read your article in hagerty about your orange lambo. Great article. Looking forward to seeing other videos of yours.

                              One correction to something you said. The R33 GT-R's had a 5 speed manual also. It was only the R34 that got the Getrag 6 speed. Nissan I believe are now offering swap kits to adapt the Getrag 6 speed to the R33

                                    Too bad it wasn't the R 34. Still noice though.

                                              HI Tavarish when you think about it, it makes sense to have the steering wheel on the right that way your strongest hand is on the wheel and your weaker hand is changing gear and the majority of people are right handed also that is why it felt so right to you when you started driving it. I have driven manual cars with the wheel on the left and it feels weird i guess it is what you are used to.

                                                            The AWD is "very unique"? Is it more one-of-a-kind than something else that is one-of-a-kind?

                                                              Wow! I am amazed: This is a driver's car I might enjoy very much! Not absolutely over the top modern. Being an old fart, normally love only cars 40 years or older.
                                                              This one is not a spaceship styled monster yet.
                                                              I grew up with cars you could fix. Normally my love was Detroit heavy metal or Italian Sports cars.
                                                              At first I was not very interested in watching this video, but I am happy I did and I enjoyed every minute of it.
                                                              Whoever wins this one can call himself very, very lucky!

Being legal in your state, you have the luxury of having something that the rest of the country doesn't really get. I'm sure you'd have a ton of fun with that plus the views would come pouring in especially if you start modding it. As much as I want the GTR I'll probably just get a GTT and build it up the way I want it.

Not only is it just a really cool car, but specifically for your channel it would be interesting, since one of the most off-putting things about a car like this is repairs, parts availability, etc... which are all things your channel swims in.

You tubers getting arrested for posting videos where speedometer is in view in the act. If you have OB2 in car data can be pulled. Your mobile phone can also bust someone. I'm also see where they issue search warrants to get into your homes and building. Nice videos keep them coming!

It has 450 HP at the rear tyres or 330 RWKW and it is an absolute weapon. It is the poor mans Carrera GT and makes me giggle every time I drive it.
