    Bought another car - Nissan Gloria Y33

    Don't worry I've still got the 5th Gen Prelude and the SiR Accord Wagon

    Got myself a JDM Nissan Gloria nice and cheap

    It's a Brougham, which makes it the grandad model when compared to the Grand Turismo. But I'm no boy racer to it suits me just fine.

    Here's the model range

    Brougham J VG20E
    Brougham J VG30E
    Brougham LV VG30E
    Brougham VG30E <---- Mine
    Brougham VQ30DE
    Brougham VQ30DET
    Brougham VIP VQ30DET

    The Grand Turismo also has those engine options, with the highest end model being the Ultima.

    So I get the full Brougham trim but the older VG30E engine. Still, I paid around AUS$3000 for this car and it's only done 61,000km. The pics don't show it, but it's a very nice pearl white and in 100% mint condition outside

    Went and checked out a local Y33 Leopard being parted out. It was the monster VQ30DET version. Most of the goodies were gone but at least I got the strut braces:

    Shit dude, you bought that for $3000!? I'd be expecting some beater for that price - or a really really old car, not something that nice!
