Thumbs up

Hi Guys,
Am in the process of buying an import. And by doing so have come across that srilanka has most. Though these cars in srilanka are more of cosmetic than power. Its pretty cool that they race every weekend and also have cops helping them now and then.

Here is a pic of the skyline.



will attach more pics tomorrow.
Cheers
Dom

The Skyline R 34 in Bombay was sold to the BPL owner Chandrashekhar in Bangalore and now stands with his other beauties.

Hey Dom,

That blue Skyline looks super clean and neat. Probably that "1000" number indicates the BHP?
