I was dealing with some life issues and I realized I have too many cars in my garage, so I decided to sell some of my cars during a few days.

I had to say goodbye to my E36 shell and the E39 M5 to one same to-be-owner who was really into the German cars. He gave me a V$ 30000 paycheck in total.

He mentioned E36 and 39 are getting rarer and it's even harder to find E36 and the top-tier E39 chassis nowadays. Well, I got the cash and he got the car.

Win-win situation for both of us :)



I bought two pairs of HKS Hipermax IV coilover sets for V$ 2000, and replaced the janky and worn out stock springs and shocks.

It was a pain in the ass to remove since it was covered with oil and dust for two decades.

Anyways, those old stuff were gone and the new coilovers were installed, and it looks better with lower and I hope it shows much better stability.

The R34 stock wheels were just placeholders until the new wheels arrive. I decided to run these BBS LM wheels to my R33.

It directly came from Japan and it costed V$ 3500 to arrive, but it totally did worth the wait.



The front end went through improvements as well. It was such an adventure to source the parts for R33, especially the OEM parts which were mostly out of stock for years.

Well eventually I found some from the Japanese auction site and sourced several OEM/Nismo parts.




Also I found the LED taillights set for R33 for V$ 500. Quite hefty price but it would not fry the electrics of the car.

Small update this time, because I think I had too much cars lately and decided to sell ER34 and focus more on my R33 GT-R and the Supra.

Also the Supra got a warning from the local police because it had no "headlight" visible, which sucks and I had to get another pair.



I somehow ended up buying a pair of modified HID headlight unit for Kouki Supra for about V$ 800.

Pretty hefty price for just a pair of headlights!



Also I cleaned up some stickers for more clean look on the windows and polished the windows since it was very easy to be scratched.

Not being a glass windows is always a pain!



11K gave me some nice collection of stickers delivered from R-Style (Thanks Ren!) and these were also going to the R33 as well.



Probably I will now source for "reasonably priced" genuine R34 GT-R for a while.

It will cost a way more than I would expect but I might end up getting something totally different :)

From a GTR-looking GTT to the real deal, now that's an upgrade! :D Supra is still looking fine as ever, looked mean with those headlight intakes but yeah, if you drive that thing on the streets i guess it's better to have proper headlights instead. And the R33 is just amazing with the BBS wheels, i think those were even a factory option so you definitely gave it an OEM+ look, pretty much like on Ben's Supra. Too bad that the BMWs are away now but hey, it will be worth it for the JDM holy grail!

Well, it's finally here. Yes, it's the legit BNR34 with lightning yellow color code. I don't even know how I ended up getting my hands on this car.

Copped for just a reasonable price of V$ 65000. Very overpriced but considering how popular this one is, and the symbol it shows, that is worth the price.

Not repaired, and 99% original parts with very good inspection records, as well as pretty average mileage for just 100K kms on the odometer.



It's the original zenki V-Spec which features several minor details different from the R34s from 21st century.

Although the wheel color doesn't match the actual wheels that came with the car (probably repainted) but who cares.

This one is not registered yet to the government, so I had to get the temporary plate from the DMV and it was lucky to pass the inspection as well.



Well most of R34s on social media or car community is mostly black, white, blue or even purple.

But this yellow one, alongside with the red, is probably the rarest of all, since the color was gone after the 2nd revision.



The interior was pretty clean and well maintained, but it needed some typical intensive cleaning process, which I always do when I get a new car.

I don't want to encounter any trails of previous owner and start with a new slate, that's why.



Even the suspension components were stock, as well as the muffler.

I think the owner didn't really want to modify this car at all, just enjoying its pure intention Nissan wanted back then.

The wheels and tires came with good old Bridgestone tires and the normal R34 brakes you expect to see.



I probably should start "Project Yellow" when my finances are done and well prepared. I will just enjoy what I have right now :)

Well, RIP my wallet, and here we go again.
