Hello, my name is Andrew. I currently live in Broadway, England and I’m a Nissan GT-R Collector.
Here’s a backstory of my life:
I was born in New York in 1983. My dad was a huge JDM car enthusiast but due to the rules of importing he couldn’t get some of the jdm cars he wanted. We were also not the most wealthy. Thankfully, I was the only child so my parents were also able to save their money. He owned a couple Honda’s, Nissans, and Toyota’s. In 1989 when the R32 Skyline first came out my dad fell in love, and he needed to have one. And when the R33 and R34 came out, it made his obsession with GTRs even more. So in 2003, my dad packed his bags and moved to the UK to get these cars and to own a importing business there. My parents were divorced so it really didn’t matter. I was living in a college dorm room with my good friend Bobby which I still know him to this day. I had a bunch of car posters in my dorm. I had a bunch of GTR posters, including Brian’s from 2 Fast 2 Furious, Mazda RX7s, Honda Civics, S2000s, NSXs and Supras. I was obsessed with those cars. Once I finished college in 2004 I became an automotive technician at an Acura dealer on Long Island. This was still at the time when the 1st gen NSX was still on sale so seeing my childhood dream car in person everyday when I went to work made me grind my ass off. In 2006 I bought a 1998 Toyota Supra. I had it for about 2 years. I loved those cars, but I always wanted a Nissan GTR. In 2008, I had the chance to drive a new 2009 GTR, and it just made me absolutely fall in love. Finally in 2011, I bought a used 2009 GTR with 45k on it. I had it until 2013 when I got hit by a drunk driver going 60 mph on a backroad. After that, I had enough money to leave New York and pursue owning a car business. I moved in with my father in Edinburgh Scotland in 2014. I lived there until I found a house in Broadway England where i have lived there since. I now own a 1992 Skyline GTR, a 1997 GTR V-Spec, a 2000 Skyline GTR V-Spec Midnight Purple III, a 2002 Skyline GTR M-Spec Nür, a 2002 Skyline GTR V-Spec II N1, and a 2017 GTR Premium. My dad also has a few which I’ll show off in another post. Enjoy my page and my cars!
