Nissan Skyline GT-R – Houston Street, NYC

February 25th, 2010 by Stu

Man on the Move reader, NYC local and pro snapper Tom Olesnevich spotted this rare-to-the-U.S. R33 Skyline GT-R on Houston between Ludlow and Orchard. The Skyline GT-R, also known as Godzilla, is among the most iconic sports cars to ever come out of the Land of the Rising Sun. Mainly because it offered up Ferrari levels of performance for a lot less coin. Seeing one on these shores is not exactly an everyday occurrence considering they were never sold here. You’re actually looking at one of a handful of grey market examples that was imported and adapted for use in the U.S. It’s quite the scandal in case you’re interested in reading up on the controversy surrounding their importation.

Thanks Tom!

BMW R75/5 – Spring Street, NYC

Vintage Bimmers are all the rage once you head south of Houston. They have a rugged appeal that feels right at home in a concrete jungle. This 1972 R75/5 has shocks lined in chunky rubber and a chrome 4 gallon gas tank (introduced that year) that many say resembled the look of a toaster oven.
