Well my names Shane, I’m 31 and I’ve been in the car scene in general and not just tuners since I was young. I use to restore old hot rods with my grandfather which is where my passion started. Growing up my dream car has always been a Skyline and I feel honored to actually own one now.

Giulio’s verdict: Another Skyline GTS-t owner from the 51onefourteen crew. This one has a lovely RB25 conversion and some other upgrades to give it that bit more of “get up and go” under the hood and I like the little touch Shane has done to those rear lights. This build looks ready for either a sweet little cruise around town or for hitting a nice drift circuit. Shane has spent time, money and hard work into putting this together all without the help of “sponsors”, something to take note of when you look at your build. “Built for you, by you”.
The BNR32 is a wicked car and one that planted Nissan massively on the sick motor map, whether it’s a GTR, GTS-t, GTS 25 or any other spec, they’re all a classic and anyone should feel privileged to own one in my book. Nice build Shane, look forward to seeing future mods.
