WOW its been too long since I have visited scionlife. I really need to keep in the loop! Some of you might recognize me as the "custom fiberglass subwoofer guy" and I spent around 3 years on this forum modifying my TC1. All the help was greatly appreciate by everyone. This forum helped me and provided tons of info for my build. I wish there was a website this helpful with my new ride.
Well unfortunately I had to sell my TC1 as the Air Force decided I had to move bases last November. I'm currently serving a 3 year overseas tour in Japan and I live right outside of Tokyo. Its crazy how here in Japan there is no such thing as Scion but they do have the XB and XA models as Toyotas. When I first got to Japan I bought a 1999 Toyota Altezza. It was a nice car but being automatic I was got so bored of driving it. Talking to my friends here on base I heard that I could take a car back that will be 25 years or older... So I picked up a 1989 Nissan Skyline GTS-T with 40k original miles and single turbo RB20DET. And YES!! this car will be coming back to the states in November of 2014. Of course just like the TC1 it was bone stock when I bought it, not anymore.... Also like the TC1 with a bunch of TRD parts, I added a lot of NISMO parts to the skyline. What do you guys think?
wow! a 1989 THAT clean?? that's amazing! yeah 40k miles, but wow, looks like they wiped down the engine bay every week they had it! and look at that interior! it's practically brand new! japanese really take better care of their cars!
