40-50k, why not put that for a real skyline?

For that kind of $$$$ you can buy a real sports car man. A used 98 Viper goes for about 30,000 or and NSX for 29,900 (what a 98 is going for on a local lot here)

it's not about WHY...it's about...how many of u can dope that?...sure it might b a waste of money...but that alty would b one of a kind...unlike the import scene now a dayz...if one does it...by the nex show...a dozen car looks exactly the same...there's no more rarities in these shows...it's almost boring to go 2 shows...u can say u have a skyline...but how many can say i got a skyline under ma hood...think about that...

sure it might b a waste...if u don't have the money...but if u do...go for it....

FYI...don't start a flame war here...i'm just voicing ma opinion...peace...
