SEMA 2009 is kicking off in just two days time and today was the day to load the cars into the hall for the North American GT-R Owners Club’s representation. In the NAGTROC booth are a variety of GT-Rs from the full race specification GOTO:Racing car to the attention drawing and unique Royal T Blue GT-R.

We helped some of the guys detail and check in today and snapped a few photos along the way.

We spotted and heard about a few more GT-Rs at other booths already so we’ll be updating tomorrow or Tuesday with more.

The GT-R Color Nissan Should’ve Offered?

Across the world the amount of discussion generated about the lack of a blue option for the Nissan GT-R is alarming. My guess is that it stems from a love affair many had with the Bayside Blue found on Nissan’s legendary R34 Skyline GT-R.

Bayside Blue was the launch color for the R34 GT-R and, at launch in 1999, the first of only a handful of GT-R specific colors. Bayside Blue went on to prove one of the most successful colors available for the GT-R and subsequently Nissan made it available on special edition R34 Skylines that weren’t GT-Rs so everyone could share in the love.

When the R35 was launched without a single shade of blue in sight, many wondered if it would become a special edition as time went by. Personally I seriously doubt that will ever happen.

So for now, one US owner has decided to take it upon himself. While this is not exactly Bayside Blue it is very close and the color is known as “Royal T Blue”.

You can check out the painting process photos and more over at his blog linked below.

So what other colors should Nissan offer for the R35 GT-R? Add your choices in the comments below…

Update: The blue Nissan GT-R visited STILLEN’s office yesterday and they snapped a whole bunch more photos for their blog. Go check their photo gallery for the rest of the pics.
