Good evening everyone and happy almost New Year! I've just added another Skyline to my stable and wanted to post it up to share. I finished importing it and clearing it through customs a couple weeks ago and finally got time in between the holidays to go pick it up from the port down in Long Beach yesterday.

It's an 87' HR31 Skyline GTS. It has about 80k miles on the car and for the most part is stock. It has the motorized front lip which isn't shown in the pictures below. It has the red top RB20, an Apex'i turbo timer, Kakimoto catback exhaust, Cusco rear strut bar, Nismo boost gauge and front seats, ADThree bumper accents, the Skyline optional rain guards, HID headlamps, some adjustable struts and lowering spring (not sure what kind), Momo Corse steering wheel, and a couple horribly mis-sized aftermarket wheels I think the previous owner slapped on before selling it to me.

It runs pretty good for the short amount I've been driving it today. It's also had the timing belt recently changed. I was hoping for dark blue, but black was my second choice!

After finishing loading it up down in LA.

A rear quarter view of the car. It's pretty dirty from sitting on the boat for a few weeks.

Rear view. I prefer the look of the zenki taillights.

Image

front corner view. I'd love a set of kouki headlights.

Some interior pics

Oldschool Nismo logo it looks like.

The red top RB20

The engine

So that's it! I'd like to detail the car and get some better pics of her on a mountain road somewhere and post it up again. Let me know what you guys think of her!

Very nice.
They are a very good base and can be made to go very hard.
Those look like GTS-R seats.
The engine looks like an NICS.

If you need any info on the car, and I mean just about any info, look here;

http://forum.r31skylineclub.com/index.php

There are a few simple improvements and a few things that go wrong with them.

Have a look at my thread, there is a fair bit of info in there.

Motorised front lip is called an Autospoiler.
Comes down automatically at 80kph and goes back up 60kph

So is it okay to import the R31 Skyline into the USA now?
