Anyone else a car fiend?

    I have to say, as much as I don't currently have a car, I'm already missing the car social aspect! I used to do a lot of work with Volkswagens, Audi's etc etc when I was in the UK, and I'd like to get back on the car scene.... So I'm thinking about getting myself a Nissan Skyline! So my question is... is anyone else on here a car nut who can give me some advice about meets and other stuff? Also, if anyone knows of a Skyline R32 GTS-T Manual(or R33 if it's cheap enough!) for about the $7.5k mark, please let me know :)

    I'm a car nut (Renaultsport) but have no ideas about clubs over here, apart from the Renault club lol. If you get an R35, can I come for a ride? Lol.

    I'd better start playing SA Lotteries if I want an R35! I did drive one recently though..... immense!

    I'd love to drive one. If you find out about any car shows/meets/gatherings then let me know.

     

    At least insurance should be cheap for a skyline here compared to the uk.

    Indeed! They are pretty common here compared to the UK... but I've never owned one.... So time for some fun :)

    Turbo fun. I used to own a punto gt on the uk years ago, which was 136bhp standard and weighed less than a ton. Remapped, higher boost and intercooler saw it running 166bhp, 180bhp per ton approx.

     

    You'll have to fit a dump valve. Vvvvv-tttssscchhh.

    Dovw next year at ttp should be good for vw. Although it won't be anything like the uk shows edition players etc. it's more like a local get together. Used to be into my cars when in the uk, still am over here I suppose on the hunt for a jetta at the moment.

    I'd say no way to the skyline though

    We've got a little Austin Healey Sprite and are members of the Sprite Club here, they have quite a few social events, and take part in the All British Day with loads of other (British) car and bike clubs up in the hills in the summer.
