Y'all could say whatchu want bout the skyline. It doesn't change the fact that it's a great ride to fling up a guntress on the trunk, skin open the legs and dagga it.
T'was that moment I decided I needed a skyline.

I agree with nervewrecker. The original post does not dispute that. Now how much skylines prowl the streets on an ordinary day when compared to how much skylines there actuslly are?

Say any non-owners dream was to have one and after 20 years they finally had the money to buy it. How long will it remain as a daily raced/driven car? It may start out so at first but then what happens?

I put poor in bold and italics for a reason :lol:

You don't understand comparisons don't you?


Not all sports cars are created equally, a skyline is sheit compared to a veyron. But which one is more attainable to the common man?


And I have a feeling you gonna reply with "the common man doesn't have 250k"
Keep in mind the cheapest x-trail is 269K, and how many do you see around?
