1995 Nissan Skyline GTS-T Coupe 2.5 turbo petrol from Australia and New Zealand
The best example to see how fast your $10k will go, in a good way... hopefully =)
Not long ago, these car were well over $10k, but now you can easily pick up a decent unit for under $10k. But before you rush in and sign the papers, it is wise to get a professional to do a check over for few hundred bucks (could be your best investment).
After all, these machines are built for one purpose -- to bring the devil outta ya!!
No one can resist putting the pedal to the metal once you get in one of these, but unfortunately not everyone knows how to handle one, especially if the previous owner just reached puberty not that long ago...
If you're looking at a GST-T or GTR, check the turbo and make sure it's not cooked.
Better still, get a pro to look at it all over as mentioned above. The last thing you want is to end up with 2 for the price of 1 (I mean 2x half cars put together as 1).
Also pay attention to aftermarket parts use on the vehicle. They're not all bad, but not all good either (depends what it is and how it was fitted). My one, I prefer everything stock standard, but that's just me.
Otherwise, what a bargain!! A sub $10k car that gives you over 180kw (if it runs well), turns heads (hopefully it impresses) and puts a smile on your face as long as you don't get carried away upgrading this and modifying that... then it will be a $20k plus car in no time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
