My passion for cars began in the early year of senior high school. I fell in love with the R32 and the R34 Skyline in my early enthusiast days. The sleek body, aggressive front end and signature tail lights caught my eyes, I told myself one day I will own one. Shortly after leaving high school, I bought one of my dream cars, the R32, and it felt like it was meant to happen. Hopefully I could get my hands on an R34 sometime in the future.

Giulio’s verdict: “If you could change anything on your car, what would it be, and why?: Nothing. I love it how it is.” That’s exactly what I think and what Aaron said about buying one of his dream cars and how it was mean’t to be, I would love to get one as soon as possible before these things start becoming too expensive. For example, as I browse the websites here in Japan for Mean Eye WRX STi type R’s and the likes, they are all starting to creep up in value. The R32, this goes for all later Skyline models for that matter too, is just a dream to work on I would imagine. The problem that I would have, like with tattoos for some people, is knowing when to stop or at least not go overboard with it. Aaron seems to have reached and found that point where I would want to stop….but we all need a fix sooner or later I think and that itch might come to just do one more thing….and maybe another small thing……ok, just one more.
Aaron, I love your R32 how it is basically, definitely mean and definitely clean. I’m jealous.
