A local guy got his "new" car in this past week

He is a BIG Nissan afficianato (sp?). He's always wanted one and IMO, I like the R32's better than most Skylines.

The only mods that I know of so far is that it has a MINE'S ECU and has nice Tein coilover suspension and bits.

He has RB26 plans for it so I'll keep you guys updated as the project unfolds.

He just put new wheels on it and gave it its much needed bath. Look for a photoshoot soon...

In the meantime, here it is the night it arrived...





LOOOOWWWWW...

Nice. Looks like it has been taken well care of, the engine shows some wear but it's clean.

I have never liked the huge muffler though, I would go with something a little more subtle and not so "HEY RICE RICE". I know, a skyline or r32 is hardly a ricer, but man those bug mufflers look crappy

I'm sure he'll ditch the muffler for something more newer and better looking but as far as size, these cars when modding a RB26 need a min. of 4" exhaust to make some awesome power.

My buddies 500+whp teg currently has 5" exhaust....

That's a nice looking car. I LOVE dark silver. I think that's what it is. And yea different exhaust would make it even hotter. Good for him!
