    I was in Porthmadog, Dolgellau and Tywyn, although not in a Nissan, I will be going back for a thrash around there soon :thumb:

    Was thinking it was perfect GTiR territory

    Nobody was ever interested in doing anything so I gave up trying.

    Members are getting a bit thin in Wales now.

    I used to really enjoy driving some of those back roads in North Wales; I really wanted to get a convoy to do the horseshoe pass, and I think a meet at somewhere like Bets-Y-Coed could be really awesome.

    But... people have sold-up, some (like me) have moved away...it's thin on the ground now.

    I've recently bought a pulsar locally (ceredigion). It'd been stood for some time and was in need of a bit of love. Picked it up last weekend and got her on the ramp. Needs a bit of work but the body is in very good nick (thankfully). Engine and box out this weekend as it looks like the clutch fork is bent... I'll get a thread up soon with some pics.

    I used to run (and still own a few) Renault 21 turbos and there's always been a good following of those in Wales, but last year I bought a skyline (R33) and couldn't find anyone near me with one. Now I've got the 'r and i think i'm in the same boat!

    Anyone want to buy a nice R33 gts-t? :)

    Yeah, Grey one not far from llandysul. it's standard from what I can make out. Been sick for a few days and had other things on so haven't spent any more time on it. Gtst is an amazing car and pulls like a bike, but just never felt as quick as I thought it should. Not fun on the roads round here either, a bit too twitchy in anything other than nice weather.
    Looks like the gtir will be a suitable replacement to the r33. Would love a gtr but a little out of my price range...

    Where a abouts are you? D'you know of any others around here?

    Aha!!! Newtown was the only place I ever saw another skyline when I was I mine!

    I spent many an hour being pulled over in Newtown by coppers. That was in a canary yellow mk1 Astra with blacked out windows though...

    We'll have to arrange a meet when I'm on the road :)

The copper to be fair have never give me much hastle around here, but hey i suppose theres always a first time lol. Mine's been off the road for a couple of year but will be seeing the road this summer. Got her out the shed on the weekend and moved down to my workshop ready for the inlet and tubro to be taken off. Having a rebuild on the turbo and giving the inlet a lick of paint to tidy it up a bit. Then after that lots done shell be going in for a respray. Ill be posting all my working in my members R thread

    hopefully gonna clean her up and make as standard as possible - even bought a standard air filter box. Wouldnt mind getting a nistune and playing with that though. Will probably tune for 280 ish.

    Nice to know there might be another one in the area soon :)
