So, nothing else go hurt on the car or you?

And where is that at? Is it just an open area or some track you can pay and use?

I am scared to death of a rock breaking my tempered glass front windshield. Glad you weren't hurt, and that you were able to get new glass.

I was not able to see where the rock hit the glass, nothing came into the car. As far as I know it could have just broken for no reason. I was not hurt at all and neither was anything on the car, besides the window of course.

It was cool having the OEM glass because of all the cool old Japanese stickers on it. The window that is now on the car is laminated so if it ever happens again it will just crack and not shatter. (Luckily this one had old Japanese stickers on it also, im a big fan)

The area I was messing around at was an open paddock area at the local race track. It was a blast :mrgreen:

Subaru is okay. Started lifting a head so had to replace the head gaskets. The motor is ready to go back in the car, just need to find some time :x

Hey Brody

Sweet car, it looks great!

Does the unfortunate freeway + rock incident mean that you wouldn't consider coming out to the Northern California vintage skyline meet on July 1? That small boulder must have been gigantic to so completely shatter your windshield...

I'm trying to convince Eric & Ryan to come out as well...

I purchased a new windshield. Two as a matter of fact and the one that is currently in the car is laminated, so this time it wont shatter on me :) I am considering going down just need to make sure I will be okay missing work.


Took my car to JDM Legends this last week to get the rear differential repaired. They found out this was the problem to my very loud whining differential.

No other damage, just replacement of bearings and seals.

It is an R200 with LSD.

My brother in law just called me from Utah and said he saw a Skyline just like mine driving down highway 15, License plate SKYRINE. Said it looked gorgeous.
