Nostalgia: Low-cost R32

Hey guys, its been a while since last time a posted!

Well, since last july to be more exactly. The summer has been very intense, and I had to study for the exams I did yesterday. I wanted to come back with something nice to bring you, so I decided to make something original instead of making a post of a round or a tuned car.

Okay, lets talk about the meaning of the blog or at least the main reason of this blog, the Nissan Skyline. The car you see below, its not the Skyline you are accostumed to see, I went through the Internet and when I saw it, for some reason it attracted me too much..

I am sure, you see this when I say ”HCR32”

Yes, you may recognize A bo Moon’s and Kure Arara’s Skyline. What I’m trying to say is that when I say HCR you think in a low Skyline, or something for Matsuri, or just a lowered and kitted sedan, but not, im not going to show you another tuned HCR or more exactly HR32.

WATCH THIS.

Wow, you dont expected that right?

What an amazing unit, this is a stock and mint condition Nissan Skyline 4-Door, know as HR-32. More specific GXi Type-X.

p2

The body been treated with love, you just need to see how it looks, im sure the owner dont used photoshop.

p4

Seeing the rims, I would say this is the very basic version, the GXi Type-X  fitted with factory stock CA18i pushing around 90 hp.

p5

Not only the exterior looks amazing, the interior does too, just look the handbrake leather, still as the first day!

p6

As you can see, this unit is equipped with automatic gearbox, also the owner upgraded and added a screen, but look at the seats and the dashboard, clock shows just 35387km, yes, less than 40.000 kms for an almost 25 years old car.

TI hope you like this as I enjoyed writing it.

¿What is Old School in Europe?

In the automotive industry, the manufacturers have been bringing new models, with new designs, new lines and engines, like every other industries.

Nowadays everything new is made to be broken, or in a few years or in the same season, but why does it happen? Why these cars aren’t what their big brothers used to be?  Why reviving the legendary models in a dumbest way? I don’t understand.

This post is about european cars, but not the current ones. I declare myself against new euro cars, I don’t like them, main reason is because electronics, they kill a car. I know is needed but always in a good measure.

So … We know quite well the old school of the U.S., with its monstrous Hemis, Stangs and Yenkos, or Japan, with its GT-R, Supras and such, but what about Europe?

Well, the Spanish people who is reading this, will know what I’m talking about, and they know that these cars are able to make you sweat, a lot of power and simple mechanically talking. In my opinion, these cars are a lot better than actual ones.

We will make a return to the past, we will remember the glories of European motorsport, everything, the golden age, rallying, resistance races… But, I’m gonna reduce that to a determinated period. I choose the cars we used to have here in this mediterranean country, Spain.

I always like to talk to an adult about these old school cars, when I name one, they always have positive adjecives to describe them. Do you know everything was better in the past.

So sit down and enjoy.

They are small, old, square, ugly, fat… But I’m sure that they got more balls than more of the brand new cars in your local dealer. I said.

It’s enough… I wanted to show some videos too, so here we have two that I the recent found, so enjoy them!\
