    When I went to Hawaii to visit my (former) college roommate I was A LITTLE surprised at the car I saw him pick me up from the airport with. Lol.

    Only recorded from my iPhone 4 for a couple hours and edited in iMovie.

    No I didn't! :mad: Next time though. When we were visiting we weren't in cars much - just on the beaches, hiking, etc. Next time though.

    Song is Thousand Foot Krutch - "Move"

    Yeah, everything on the iPhone 4. Yeah, we giggled like schoolgirls though - thought it was funny. It was the first time he pushed it when we all were in it.

    Almost!

    LOL.

    Thanks!

    We're not in college anymore, and he's making over 100K a year selling medical devices. He does well and I'm jealous.

    Yeah it's beautiful. I even offered to help him wash it before we took these videos. Lmao.

    Tell him to save up and get a ZR1 and redo the video. Let me know how cleaning the piss off the seat goes.

    Awesome!!

    I love the gt-r! I see quite a few driving around beverly hills and LA.
    I myself have an Infiniti g37S (basically the low end version of the nissan gt-r).

    Definitely a perfect car for the money. But I would definitely rather have an Audi R8 or Ferrari. (though they are more expensive).

    Not much of a corvette fan though ...

    Nah, I don't want to hijack the thread and take it away from the Nissan but if you're on about those kind of cars I'd rather have a Maserati personally, just because they're rarer and more exclusive ;)

    Not really. Plus they are less expensive (meaning not as exclusive) and very unreliable (my dad had one). Awesome looking cars, yes, but they just don't hold up to the hype. Plus aren't Maseratis just the lower end Ferrari?

    Back to the GT-R. I found that it's 0-60 is actually faster than the Lexus lf-a clocking at about 3.5seconds. It's an amazing car at an amazing price!

    I'm still shocked that people spend so much money on a Nissan...

    You said he makes over 100k a year, yet he drives a 90k car...Once you factor in rent/mortgage and living expenses that is still alot of car for that salary...With my yearly bonus I make just over 100k and at most could probably afford a 25k car.

    For a car that outpaces/outhandles most super cars many times it's price, it's almost a case of: why buy a 911 Turbo instead of this car?

    You could save up for a few years or you could put it on monthly payments.

    I've waited for FOREVER for an 'american' Skyline...too bad I won't be able to afford one anytime soon. lol

    The R34 has always been my favorite anyway.
