Last fall I traded my 2012 GTR and 2011 Tundra for a 2016 Tundra. I immediately missed the car....I thought I could satisfy my need for road therapy with a Ducati Diavel but I'm just not comfy on the bike. So, after selling Green Machine, I managed to trade the Ducati in on a new ride and I'm back to smiling every time I get behind the wheel.

Awesome! Several of my coworkers are doing a 6 month lease on GTRs at the plant. I told them I didn't even want to drive one cause I didn't want to know what I was missing!

I saw the Green Machine yesterday. It was asking for a race but he wanted to pick the course! Well Done!

Thanks all! I've been enjoying it quite a bit. I miss having Green Machine around however honestly, the Ranger has covered all the needed bases.

Glad to see you're back. We miss your comments.

How's your GTR doing these days? Did you ever use the launch control?

Thanks Esteban. I'm glad I have made time to check in.
The GTR is gone but I did use the launch control several times. I'm not sure there is a comparison to any other machine as I constantly had perma-grin. I do hope to have another down the line but just house projects at the moment. I had a 4 series BMW after the last GTR which was fun and refined but nowhere near the same. I think it was a 428xI.
I'm glad to see some of the old names still so active on this site as I recall putting much work into getting a place for us all to communicate and store information that wasn't being held over our heads.

If I was going to buy a GTR, I would buy a R34 GTR from Japan and put it in storage until it hit the 25 year old requirement for importation. The prices are starting to go up on them already. Just sayin'! The R32 GTRs are already eligible, but the R34 is my favorite.

I hear ya and I've investigated but everything I have read indicates that if you have owned an R35, anything older will just disappoint you. I'm not sure what the future will bring for vehicles but I do hope to get back into a classic 4x4 and another fun sports car before too long!

Working for Nissan, I have had many friends lease GTRs. They have all offered to let me drive. I've told them all no. I'll never own one, so I don't want to know the excitement of driving that which I'll never own!
