Another year down the drain

Its been a while, over a year since my last post here. Kinda just lost motivation and inspiration on what to post here. No one really reads it anyway so im just rambling to myself.

Regardless, apparently this is meant to be a good outlet for everything that is floating around in my brain.

Its 2016 now, and time for a quick update. Since selling the M3, ive had a few more cars. Immediately after the M3 I purchased a 2006 Nissan Skyline 350GT in the V36 chassis.

I chose the Skyline because whilst a Turners one day poking around i came across one and it really appealed to me. Nice looks, lovely interior, and a 311HP V6 engine. They are all auto, and in the case of the one at turners it was a Type S (Sport) model, in pearl white.

To drive one of these things is interesting. Huge power on tap and will spin the rears if you arent paying attention, and the auto is actually quite a nice unit, very responsive in auto or manual modes. In manual it even rev matches on downshift, blipping the throttle. Sadly all that power is kinda lost on a chassis that is mushy and suspension that is woefully soft.

I didnt buy the one at Turners, the salesman was a bit unfriendly so i decided to buy one privately. I ended up with a blue Type SP, combining both the performance model and luxury model. Full tan leather, heated seats, paddle shift, adaptive headlights, and more aggressive bodykit.

It was a great car, and a great cruiser, but it really lacked the fun factor and was dull to drive.

I sold that, and moved on.
