Skyline sighting

Went to a car show at my school in Claremont today. TWO SKYLINE GTRs, both with engine mods. In addition, there was at least 3 Ferrari 360 Challenges, assorment of other ferrari's, a Vector W8 twin turbo, Viper GTS, and... Ferrari F50 and a Ferrari FX: built one of a kind for the sultan of brunai, worth 4.5 million. I'll post pics sometime monday or tuesday. thumbsup

thats the color I saw, it was on loan from a collection. I have a pic of the interior too, right hand drive with paddle shifting. I have to get them off my gf's cam so it may be a day or 2

it was crazy, right hand drive, a toggle switch for drive and reverse, plus paddle shifters. But keep in mind it was made in '96 before they even had those out on other Ferrari's

nope, just pain old claremont, which is near pomona, ontario, ect...some of the areas around here are really poor actually, but most are nice but modest. Not too many tuners out here though, which means that if I really mod my car it'll be relatively little compitition

it was great, they pulled up and started revving their engines, their exhaust was blowing leaves all over the place and everyone's head turned to them.
