Default Skyline Gts-t Driven!!!

well well was walking down swanston street in melbourne and saw this beauty roll by..it was for sale and had a numbe on it, was trying to call him when he noticed me and pulled over. asked me if i was interested and upon sating yes he told me to hop in. my first impression was the car was CLEAN on the inside looked as if it hads just rolled out form the showroom rather than a 10 year old!!
started chatting with him and got the details of him:
model nissan 32gts-t
rb25 engine
single turbo
a whole lotta mods:
LSD
BOV
brakes
etc.etc.
end of it all a figure of 260kw at the wheels which is more than a stock R34..!!!
he pulls over and asks me to drive...man i am twitching with excitement and when he says let her rip i do let her RIP...0-100 was like in no time at all and a drift into a 90degree right man had my heart in mouth..
she had 18" wheels with 275 tires to hold the road and they did a good job indeed.
within 15 minutes we had covered 30kms and that too in the city which is a miracle.
the car being lighter and a RWD is a drifters dream and is to australians what E-Zens are to us back home.

Hey, so I was close enough on the "ICEMAN" bit! Looking at your signature, we're going to see another Nissan test-drive soon. Get ready, TBHP!
