    and what years do they run and what conversions would i have to do to make the exterior look like the skyline, i imagine tail light conversion and some other stuff. List where you can get the mods and the year of the car I would need. I would worry about the engine after the car is looking right.

    Yeah sandi pretty much said it all

    Nothing in the US every was based on the Skyline. And i still hope they bring the new model over here.

    There are many bullshit kits for the tail lights and what not for the skyline. But the whole look of it would be a custom job. And actually to pull off the tail end of the car you need to do a shave job on it.

    Don't do this conversion, the best is the 240 to the Silvia. Otherwise you better get all your money ready to do this right and make it look good.

    Shit i love drifting. Try drifting in a supra with 440rwhp...its so fun:)

    No longer working on it. It is pretty much completed in my eyes. It has 330+ to the wheels. Finally broke into the 11's so i have done exactly what i wanted. And it is still a sleeper. Oh yeah traction is always a problem...lol.... Even in 3rd, but still walked a new cobra. What else.... oh yeah about to finally get my car. I have been wating for about 4 months now deciding on what car i want to keep for a long duration of time. And i think i have found it. Next month i should get it and be posting up pics.

    The Infinite g35 is suppose to be the skyline for the U.S. even though the body styles are totally different. The 240 is based off of the 180sx - silvia (s14/15). They stop making the 240 in '96 I believe.

    That is still the funniest thing that the Z and the G series share somewhat the same platform as the skyline. I think it is a marketing ploy more so than anything else. Cause this car is great and all, but they dont even share the same inline engine as the skyline. Oh well, still waiting to see the skyline sell on these shores.

    Yeah this was the second Supra with the 6spd. I raced probably a total of 3 times on road courses. Fun as fuck, but i really need more experience to pull off some true drifting. Oh i had HKS coils for my suspension setup. The best drifting thus far is when i auto-x my audi. Oh yeah and my friends WRX in the desert in Nevada. Drifting of course is not necessary on road courses but it is fun as hell, especially when you pull them off. I need much more practice at it.

    Oh yeah nobody knows what im getting. Not even my boys, or my mechanic.

    they stopped making the 240 in 98..

    and the "180sx" was just a fast back silvia... understandable confusion.. both 180sx and s13 standard back shar the same guts but the 180sx has a more air freindly bodystyle... both cars are awesome... Fastback 1st gen 240s are OFF THE CHAINS with a widebody shell and lambo taillights... isnt that right Tigre?

    Skylines have already made their way across the states, known as the Infiniti G35(Skyline V35) with the VQ35DE, so yeah....

    As much as i love the G35 coupe i would never call it a Skyline although it is based off of it.

    But still until a car comes out with at least the same Inline engine as the skyline with all the bells and whistle it will never be considered a skyline.

    And boo and fucking U.S. from keeping this car away from us.
