Show or Display Cars : What happens when they turn 25 years old?


Show or Display 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R Vspec Early Edition

What happens when a Show or Display car turns 25 years old? 

When a Show or Display car turns 25 years old, it is no longer bound to the requirements (49 CFR 591.6(2) of Show or Display.  In plain talk, you don't have to have special insurance, you aren't limited to 2500 miles a year.  It just turns into a normal car. 

Show or Display has nothing to do with registration, or title for a vehicle. States handle title and registration.  It is an IMPORTATION exemption.  It allows you to import a car that isn't 25 years old, that doesn't meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards(FMVSS).  However if the car is under 21 years old, you need to meet EPA requirements, which can make it nearly impossible to bring the car into compliance.

Best Motoring : Altia R32 N1 vs Altia R33 N1


R32 vs R33 : N1 Racecar Battle

R32 vs R33.  Which is faster?  The R33 has some improvements over the R32, like the active LSD, but is it enough to be the smaller and lighter R32 GT-R on track?  Check out this video from Best Motoring to find out.
R33 GT-R debut !! R32 vs. R33 racing car showdown 【Best MOTORing】 1995

In 1995, the Skyline GT-R was fully remodeled to R33 type. The drive system "Atesa E-TS" which is the biggest feature is equipped with an active LSD that distributes torque even to the rear left and right wheels in addition to the front and rear torque distribution. However, does the big and heavy body have an impact on motor performance? Can the GT-R revive back to the domestic sports champion again? A thorough comparison test with rival cars.

R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R : OEM Airbags

A 326 white, OEM airbag equipped R32 GT-R. 
Airbags were an option on the drivers side for the series 2 R32 GT-R's. However it was not a widely taken option.  GT-R Registry has the full breakdowns of how many of each model code were produced. 

 183 + 66 + 35+ 23+ 11 + 5 + 4+4+4 +3 +1 +1+1+1+1 =

343 total with airbags. 




We just got an original airbag car in stock, and there are a few interesting little differences in the center console. The shape is just slightly different. We imagine it is this shape to accommodate the airbag control module, which are normally mounted under the center console
