Here's Why You Can't Afford An R34 GTR Skyline

Nissan Skyline GTRs are often considered the most coveted 90s JDM cars. And with many sales well into the 6 figure range, it seems that the market agrees with that as well. Today we discuss the history of the R34 Skyline GTR and how it got to the point of selling for over $359,000 US Dollars.

    This reminds me of a post I saw on some Skyline forum ages ago. I think it was Skylines Australia. It was saying something along the lines of: Enjoy having R32 Skylines while we can, because in a few years the Americans will ruin it. The 25 year limit will pass, every Skyline in halfway reasonable condition will be snapped up by Americans with too much money, and it'll be over. If you don't already have one by then, you will never get to own one. Seems that's come to pass. When I was growing up in NZ it wasn't unusual for kids to have a lower-spec (NOT a GTR!!!!! Yes there are other, less impressive models) R32 as their first car. My dad had a four-door non-turbo R32 as the family car and that was considered unremarkable, just a cheap runabout. If the Skyline was to be forever illegal in the USA then that could be the case now with R34s, but instead we get this.
