Covered in Goo!

November 4, 2009

Almsot every day I find myself on for one reason or an other.  Sometimes linked by Ed (Orion) other times by any number of people who like to share in the spoils of the interwebs explorations.  Tonight I found myself navigating the seas of Fairlady’s and Skyline’s to find those housing the precious S20 spoils.  These were those I found and thought I would in turn share with you lovely people;

First up is what I imagine (though cannot confirm it to be due to lack of details and photographs) is a genuine Fairlady Z432

With a price tag of 9.5mil Japanese Yen, you would hope it was S20 powered. (That’s roughly 145,000NZD at current exchange rates).  Obviously the 432 is not the only Z with the S20, the 432R is almost motivated in similar fashion though there are none for sale currently on Goo for me to share but in speaking with Rob from RIVERSIDE I would imagine their prices are likely closer to that of the 110GT-R below…

One of only 197 Units, sets a price-tag of 13.5mil JPY (that’s roughly $208,000 in your NZ pittance) Mmmm, one day!  Though when I finish my GT-R look build, I’ll be mildly content without the S20, for a long while…  I hope.

So, that leaves what?  Well it leaves where the GT-R badge began, the C10 series.  Where better to first peak then at the sedan that started the legend;

The PGC10 clocks in at 8.4mil JPY, (130,000NZD) not bad for a family sedan with a fancy engine!  Whereas the Hardtop…

…breaks the bank a further 2.4mil JPY, (Go Mathletes, Go) which makes it 10.8JPY, roughly $165,000 of your New Zealand Dollars.

Comparing those to the prices some of the Aussie metal has been getting lately.  They’re not all bad!  Someone buy one!
