Officer Matt Talks About his Nissan Skyline GTR in DenverJun 17, 2021
hi my name is Matt, my car modding guy, boneless car experience since I was 13 years old, started building muscle cars in the late 90's early 2000's, got into the import scene, built a 91 dodge stealth r/t twin turbo which was my first big leap into it widebody kit bunch of custom bodywork pull out 444 on the run of wheels no oh crossed it sold that and was looking for a new toy and that's when i found my two engines the reason i wanted a horizon was i was deployed to afghanistan in 2011 and with my army reserve unit and my big plan when i got back was to save enough money to buy a new 2009 GTR by the time the 2009 GTR prices didn't go down enough to be able to do that, I realized the 89, our 32 was coming into legal compliance and that's when I started looking.
I have owned my car since they first became legal. It's been, I guess, a year and a half now. yeah one of the things I'm really proud of is knowing that my car was the first to cross the Canadian border it did at 12:01 so a minute after they cleared my car was rolling towards the USA. of care i get on this car like i said its pretty amazing my daily driver mostly good weather and the winner i have a jeep i drive when it snows a lot but you feel like a rock star driving one of these cars people follows you into parking lots they constantly give you a thumbs up and wave you see the surprised looks I think the most common question I get is is it real the fact that my car has the BR 324 for kids really confuses people because they see it from behind and they think it's a 32 and then they see it from the front and they think it's a 34 and they're not really sure what it is so I get a lot of questions about that I actually have people following me through work all the time and they say oh my god you're a cop and you drive a GTR which is awesome so I think it's cool too.
The purchase process through Matsu Motors was flawless, it was super simple. I spoke on the phone and through the Internet. I initially found out details about the car when I decided it looked like it was something I wanted to pick up. I got my money. I got on a plane. I flew to Tampa. The car answered every question I had about the car, let me test drive it for as long as I wanted and we sealed the deal that same day, once I got back to Colorado the process to register it was very simple. I brought in all my paperwork that Matsumoto provided me including the Florida title, I did a full title transfer, I was able to show my emissions people the EPA exemption and they stamped my emissions exempt title for Colorado so I didn't even i have to worry about emissions if i'm in colorado so i bought the car the only reliability issue i had was putting in the alternator it actually did it on my ride home so i was able to get the car back home from safe way getting an alternator wasn't hard to find one found on eBay had it next release date and put the alternator back on and that's the only problem I've had with the car since then so I first bought the car here at Colorado I ran into a Pep Boys just to think it was when I was buying oil to do all my fluid change after the car on the way back from Florida was still dirty because e recently arrived in the city I had the opportunity to detail it.
I stopped at the Pep Boys, ran with my kids and apparently a Subaru. The group was out doing just one trip and there were probably 2025 Subarus in this group and I went out and my car was surrounded. I had parked soubise completely in a big circle and that became I don't know, it was there. for probably an hour and a half with all these guys from Subaru who were just nted to crawl all over the car because they'd never seen one in person before. I think that's the biggest thing about driving a car like this is that a lot of people have interpreted it in video games who have seen it in the movies. but they have never actually been able to see one or touch one in person and it's almost a dream come true.
I think for people just getting to see one up close and personal, kind of my modification plans for cars when I first bought it, one of the first things I did was take it home, changed all the fluids and made sure that everything was a good baseline for reliability purposes. I took it to a shop I called boost creep and we did a benchmark dyno ran it and made sure when I turned the boost up a bit it was still within safe operating parameters we cranked it up to full PSI and lowered 307 and 310 on the wheels, well that's a lot of fun. -state goal is going to be 500 550 on wheels i think that's a good middle ground for a daily driver i should be able to have fun with that and not get into brake part reliability issues all the time body mods since I have the car I switched to the r34 GTR wheels they are 34 carbon fiber the hood, carbon fiber rear decklid and the ridiculously big spoiler because it's a GTR.
I would absolutely recommend Monster Motors, they are a major importer of GTRs. They were one of the first really on the scene. They know the process. I will be happier with my purchase of Matsu engines.
