Default Finally swapped out my Vette for the GT-R

I am pretty kicked, even though I really miss my vette. I wish I could have both.

I was going to mod the crap out of my vette but decided to have something stock but a little more powerful.

I dont know how long i can keep this one stock. For now its been fun, unfortunately I am coming to india for about 2.5 mos and wouldnt be able to drive it. I am dying to get back and for april to roll around, so i can take it to the track.

Here are some pictures.

Yes, that would be nice, but awesome replacement nonetheless!

I've seen two GT-R's on the roads, both with the dark metallic grey colour.

Seems to be the most popular colors, apart from the white. I haven't seen a single one in black, or the red color that 1Day has.

Congrats!!!

But if you like vettes, why didn't you go in for the ZR1? Its way quicker than the R35.

Another crazy ride. Awesome! I really liked your 'Vette though, sigh. Maybe you should bring this madness back with you temporarily on carnet while you're here in India for the couple of months.
