Jason, I am extremely jealous of you having this car
Although I prefer the R32 GT-R, I would be more than happy with any Skyline.
Great photo of it.
Haha thanks Colton. I think the R32 GTR is a bit of a different beast compared to mine (HR31 GTS-X), in performance anyway.
Are there many Skylines in North America? Any R31s like mine? I can't help but be curious... I didn't think many (or any?) were made in LHD.

Javier, IMO the vibrance is nice on this set of shots (I had no problems with it on the previous set either, BTW). Always interesting to see LA through your point of view.

Sadly, Nissan never sold any of the Skylines in NA until the 2003 Infiniti G35,, a rebadged version of the Skyline. The new GT-R is sort of available if you can find one and cough up $86,000 US. There was/is a company in California that specializes in importing used JDM Skylines but they were all RHD and started at $18,000 for a R32 GTS with over 60,000 miles.

Well that sucks, but I thought it might be the case. Suprisingly $86,000 USD is extremely cheap compared to what the new GT-R goes for in Aus. You are talking about $150k AUD for a new one... Even so there are a few on the road here (out of my wildest dreams - but some people work in mining here and get paid a fortune).
I have heard of LHD R31 Skylines being manufactured, although I think they are extremely rare. They may have been made in low volume for the Middle East or Europe... Don't know about the newer models.

I just got back my 1964 Spotmatic from Eric after a CLA. He repaired the meter and cleaned the lens. The lens was yellow and had some fungus. It is pretty cool on how good it looks and how solid and crisp it feels. So I now have the first and the last of the spotties.
So these are test shots I took around my yard. Yes, my yard is a real mess. Traces of my kids are all over....The Orange and Pomegranate I shot wide open
