At this years Turkey Run auto show in Daytona Beach, Fl there were a number of fantastic and interesting hot rods and classics, but one car stood out as a modern classic that was stealing some of the spotlight.

Few other Asian imports command the respect and awe that the Skyline GT-R does.

The right-hand drive Skyline GT-R is coveted by many and this particular 1998 is available to anyone willing to put forth the $39,000 asking price. As the day came to an end on Saturday it had not appeared that any takers were in attendance at this years Turkey Run.

    Thats not a GT-R, its one of the lesser model Nissan Skylines. Kind of like calling a ZR1 a Corvette. Technically correct, but I am pretty sure the guy that paid $120k for the ZR1 wants you to know its not the same a a run of the mill Vette.

    It’s an R33 GTS-t spec 2. Which is not really a lesser model. It’s only slightly down on horse power and rear wheel drive instead of the GTRs adaptive 4 wheel drive, so definitely more of a mans car in the wet.

    That aside, the car shown is a tidy example of a spec 2, with after market alloys, side skirts and front splitter. Nice graphics too. Gives me an idea of what to do with mine.

    They’re not that rare over here, but then we don’t have the restrictive laws that the US has on importing foreign cars. A bit draconian in my opinion.

    Sits back and waits for the flack…
