    At my local garage again ;)
    Under this tarp is a rally Beatle with a Subaru flat 4 in the back :)

    Wow I've not seen one of those in years and this looks like it's in showroom condition.

    Whilst this car isnt rare, the paint, wing, front bumper, side skirts etc, are :)

    My last car was very rare on the streets and my "new" 2011Honda type R is also quite rare as well.

    I think that many of the younger set will be somewhat surprised at seeing an elderly gentleman behind the wheel :)

    PS my no 1 son says that I am 80 going on 18 :rofl:

    always great to see the older rare stuff out and about, im lucky that i own an old classic and i have just been onto how many left as i thought there was about 500 or so on the roads and about the same sorn but no i was nowhere near and they are far rarer than i thought.

    A bit of rust in places, but looked lovely.

    No idea what it is, but I like it!

    Been here a while by looks of it @Lunchmoney, DVLA says 2005 registered and as a normal 2.5lt engine model so why the GTR badge o_O Wonder if it's had anything else done to it apart from Nismo spoiler endcaps, side skirts and fat exhaust? Haven't seen a "standard" Skyline yet :lol:

    Don't exist. Much like Imprezas, and probably any JDM import, they get modded all over :rofl:
