Photoshoot By Robert Castaneda: Post 89





























1st Photoshoot By ChreenoPhoto: Post 68


SOME PHOTOS UPDATE: Post 56+


DELIVERY UPDATE: Post 27




Will be missed, but not forgotten!


After 2 years of owning this baby, I am finally in a financial situation that allows me to get the car I've been dreaming about since it's debut back in 2008, of course that would be the one and only R35 Nissan GT-R (aka Godzilla)

I was planning to get a 2012, then the earthquake in Japan changed availability and pricing, so I decided to wait.

Thanks to the amazing GM of Gillman Subaru, he got me an amazing deal through Gillman Nissan despite the crazy GT-R markups on the '13's and I was happy to place my order last December with Hilton Tran at Gillman Nissan who has been super helpful throughout the whole process :)

The plan is to keep this build simple, but who knows what the future might hold for this :lol:

I like what you guys did with that GT-R steering wheel, maybe that, with some CF will make it's way into this build.

It will definitely have some JPM goodness, just haven't decided what to do first :D

Re: AJ's 2013 GT-R "Simple" Build - Delivery Scheduled 03/23/2012!

Thanks boss :D

I can't wait to see it either

I will go look at it and snap a few pics on Friday, but depending on how fast they process the paperwork, I may not be able to take delivery until a few days later as I'll be in and out of town :(

Words can't describe my excitement :)

Re: AJ's 2013 GT-R "Simple" Build - Delivery Scheduled 03/23/2012!

Thank you all :)

I just heard from Nissan that my car's delivery may be delayed till next week :(

I imagined I'd be more pissed than that, but I'll be out of town for the TX Mile this weekend, and hopefully I'll be taking delivery once I come back.

Detail/New Car Prep is scheduled for next weekend

then Xpel self healing clear bra will cover the complete front nose of the car, as well as getting Huper Optik ceramic tint at EVS Motors

I will be posting updates as soon as I have them :)
