What is a skyline good for...really?

Postby brakefluid » March 29th, 2016, 12:56 pm

We all know d skyline is a monster of monsters. But what good is it really other than a sunday drive or parked up in a man cave?

No skyline going in a rally and well i dont know the amount that go to other sporting events and then there are none that roam the streets as a daily driver.

Hence my question...

Naw, if I run that car it's to the bar where we buy each other a cold brew. His dream car was always a skyline so congrats to him for being able to make his dreams come through.

As the OP said though it's a lot of hype and rumours where fact can no longer be distinguished from myth. I'm in a WhatsApp group where people calling skylines and supras rally cars. One tells of seeing them on the course as of recent. As usual, no pics and I cleared the convo already.
The engine in the hyped up ones is huge and prehistoric. It's a huge junk of metal that needs to be boosted the heck out of to even make some decent power.
We just got to face the fact that it's a 90's fast car and has very little place to function here. Cars are being produced with smaller engines that spit out more power than the stock rb and jz.
I see some turning to stance now to retain some dignity and riding out the hype wave till it's over. One was trying to overtake a 323 this week and couldn't because it's too low.

I have nothing against them eh, they are great cars and I can respect a skyline and owner who knows what he has and knows his place.

i think this is the response the OP was looking for...

but in all seriousness...a skyline is a skyline...is a beast but to have the beast costs a lot of money to buy...and properly maintain.

sometimes just havin all that power doesnt mean you need to go flat out 160kms ever time u jump in the driver seat....that just proves yuh have the money to buy it..and full gas in it....but not the discipline to drive it....

but wen it crash or for sale alot of tuners go "claim" to know "the real story"

still in before black start :lol: :lol:

as long as the import rule keeps them from being legally registered, and you don't crash it....its a good investment....not many cars can claim that.
evo and sti prices are still dropping, but straight six gtr prices are on the increase.....a lightly modded one went for 500K a couple weeks ago...
will buy an R32 in a heartbeat...

They're, even in stock form, quick, reliable (if you're proactive), comfortable and versatile cars. They can go from everyday put-putters to track machine with a few tweaks - the level of which depends on the owner's pockets. Bottom line is, they are street cars based directly of their touring car variants. In regard to how capable they are; 150mph in 1990 is still 150mph today and I believe unless they go unloved or poorly built, they are capable of keeping pace with most modern day sport sedans. Don't believe me?.. YouTube.

That's the thing. A lot has gone unloved and run down. It's the hype that keeps them afloat.
Ain't much of anywhere to say you can take out your ride for a spin and unleash the horses (legal of course).
As said on the forum here before, I prefer a vehicle that has the horses, speed but prefer handing. Makes it much more fun to drive on the road.

Ewww. That is jus a wetman ride. Ok for comparison purposes i have seen evo and subaru at many sport events as well as daily drivers.

(On a side note i never saw anyone dedicate a 4wd to drifting but i could be wrong)
