Added 35 minutes later:

So i traded my two beasts this morning for a lump sum of 9.2k which is reasonable since they was orignally only gonna take the 300zx but they was both considered classics and now they are sitting in the Osaka Nissan Dealership being seen to i guess.. However my garage is now down to two cars but they are both cool as fuck so its worth it.

So i got porked on the R32... Sadly it was sold before i could purchase it however i did find something worth the money...

A R34 GTR!!! But it does have a leaky head gasket and no compression in cylinder 3 and 5, so that means rebuild. (Sleeping M0nkey can help) It cost me 8.5k and it was delivered to my garage which was great since i didnt need to hire a trailer then.

Its actually been sprayed in a turquoise blue that was on a skyline colour palette according to the previous owner.

The interior is immaculate and the car has only done 70k miles but must have been pushed hard throughout its lifetime.

It came on genuine Volk TE37's in pearl white and have brand new Dunlop Direzza's.

The car has a HKS exhaust so it makes mad sound (well did..)







Finances:
12,722 - 8500 = 4222

4222

I couldnt be bothered with assembling new pistons and crankshafts etc. So i went down to a nissan tuner near Osaka and i asked for a 2.7 stroker kit to be installed and head installed also. It came $1800 which isnt bad and ive been told it will make about 350 now also. So i took a rolling shot on the way home as i had my 180 being driven by a friend since it was trailered blah blah.

Yesterday evening i saw some Work Ewing III's pop up on Art of Wheels and i managed to get them for a bargain i would say as they only cost me $1150 including custom hub caps. Thanks to Phonexius' brilliant help i got them and now awaiting delivery which should be this week some time. Also they are 17x10 and are for one of my Nissan's. Any Guesses?
