Archive for the ‘GTRBlog News’ Category – Nine Year Update – Hello 2021

July 10, 2021 Comments off

Well its only been 9 years since the last post, so obviously not much has changed in the GT-R world 😀 I’ve had some motivation (thanks COVID lockdowns!) to post again on the site so here goes. Let’s see how rusty I am at finding interesting GT-R posts. Surely the next GT-R is right around the corner?

I think I might start by posting a few things about what’s been going on in the GT-R world in my absence. I’m very interested in the Japanese SuperGT scene as it seems a lot has changed. Who would have expected the Toyota Supra to be a thing again 9 years ago!?

I’ve also tried to do some basic modernization to the site. I’ve fixed a load of broken images, broken links, broken videos. I’ve cranked up the image sizes overall and the width of the page. Monitors sure have changed since 2009-ish when I launched the last redesign of the site. Comments are disabled due to spammers but might re-enable them if people prefer to engage that way.

Anyway stay tuned! Let me know if anyone’s still reading, you can Tweet me @ctfkris or email me I’ll gladly take photos of your GT-R projects to post. I know there’s a lot of beastly Godzillas getting around these days.

Mines 2012 Nissan GT-R

No doubt that many of our readers have already all set to attend Tokyo Auto Salon which begins tomorrow. Many of you may be sticking around after the show to do a little sightseeing or enjoy your Japanese vacation. Mine’s let me know that, as usual their annual Mine’s Meeting event will be held this year from January 14th – January 21st 2012.

Mine’s has asked me to let our English speaking friends know that if you do want to visit, why not send them a quick note to let them know in advance so they can organize to have English speaking staff onsite:

While in Japan for the period of the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon from Jan 14 – Jan 21 all customers/fans are more than welcome to visit our shop in Yokosuka and see first hand where our work is done. To make your visit worthwhile we would like to prepare an English speaker for your visit and request that you give us notice beforehand by E-mail to the account below so we can make arrangements.

If you do get along, say hi to the guys from me!

GTRBlog Holidays and End of Year Downtime

GTRBlog End of Year 2010

Hey readers, I don’t often do this but I had to have a little break from the site to enjoy an end of year vacation. Yes GTRBlog went for the longest time since 2007 without an update! I feel so shocked at how long it’s been since I posted.

Good news is that the GT-R scene didn’t stop and while I’m sure you’ve all been keeping busy with NAGTROC to fill your GT-R internet quotas I’ve got a number of stories to catch up on.

Thanks for continuing to check back – I see that the stats are still strong for our little blog here and that people I meet out and about at car meets etc still know exactly who I am. That always surprises me!

While the big vacation is over for me I still have a lot of Christmas parties to attend as I’m sure you do.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and stay tuned for more GT-R News in 2010 and into the new year!

Anyways, have a Happy New Year from and to celebrate check out some of the tight circuit action from KC Racing’s R35 GT-R at Macau Road Sport Challenge late last year!

Happy Australia Day GT-R Lovers

January 26, 2010 Comments off

Australia Day, celebrated the 26th of January every year is the best day of the year to get out in the back yard with a case of beer and fire up the BBQ in the stinking summer heat. It got up to about 40 something Celsius today but fortunately it’s also a public holiday so we don’t need to go to work.

Anyways, lets celebrate Australia Day with some fine pics of a Aussie GT-R! One of the finest in the country, we’re going to be looking out for this car in some upcoming tarmac rallys.

Happy New Year from

Happy new year guys, we’re going to take a day off for recovery after some serious eating and drinking and fireworks watching for 2010. The view above is pretty much what I was watching as the clock ticked over to 12:00 1st January 2010 in Sydney Australia.

As a small token of appreciation I gathered up a few photos I’ve taken in 2009 and uploaded some highres ones for desktops or what have you.

Thanks for supporting us over the last 12 months and keep checking back for much more GT-R news in the years to come!

Nissan GT-R All Dubai’d Out with Chrome Wrap

November 14, 2009 Comments off


It’s only being defined as a saying on Autoblog a couple days back but we already have an example of a Nissan GT-R that exactly fits the bill of “All Dubai’d Out”.

This GT-R owner in the UK has applied the most eyecatching wrap possible to his previously tasty looking white R35. The process he says was more complex than the average wrap and more expensive as well.

It doesn’t look as bad as I imagined really but I definately preferred the white…
