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! GTRBlog Officially Launches in Japanese

Thanks to our friends in Japan, the GT-R Owners Club and the GTR-SNS, we’ve now gone live in Japanese on local Japan based servers to provide the best and most up to date news and information on the world of the Nissan GT-R!

The two sites will be delayed mirrors content wise but be also providing original and localised content written by Japanese enthusiasts and bloggers. This will also give us an even bigger leg up in getting out GTRBlog English readers the latest news out of Japan. Something we always strive to improve.

So hitup the link below to get your daily dose of GT-R news in Japanese!

GTRBlog: Road Trip and Update

October 30, 2009 Comments off


Sorry for the lack of updates over the past 3 or 4 days, I’ve actually been on vacation in the USA leading up to SEMA which kicks off in just a few days. I took some time in San Francisco to check out the sites and had no internet access for a while as I visited Yosemite National Park.

I then met up with Chuck from NAGTROC and headed down California Highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) for a scenic drive to LA.

Since then I’ve been visiting some workshops and GT-R owners in the Los Angeles area to check out their SEMA entries and am happy to say you guys are going to love whats coming.

So I finally have internet access as I’ve just done the last leg of the road trip from LA to Vegas and checked in so expect another update later tonight when I get the chance to properly nerd out.

Thanks to all who emailed me over the past week and I expect to return emails soon.

GTRBlog Now Available in More Languages in More Places

June 22, 2009 Comments off


Isn’t social media great? Well if you enjoy the ‘blog you have to say yes even if you hate social media. There’s a load of people still on the fence as well and to those people I say, give it a try, you might like it. The worst that could happen is you end up with several crazy cyber-stalkers who break into your house to watch you while you sleep.

Anyways, GTRBlog has grown up a bit over the past two years and so has the Nissan GT-R. The GT-R is available in many more countries than any previous Skyline GT-R, which never really officially made it’s way properly out of Japan except in handfulls or grey imports. That means we have a potential audience greater than ever before and to capture this we’ve teamed up with Martin from Taipei, Taiwan to bring you GTRBlog in Traditional Chinese.

Let me introduce Martin to readers, although you may not read the Traditional Chinese version of the ‘blog, the story of how the Nissan GT-R legend has spread to Taiwan is interesting.

Martin is one of just 25 GT-R owners so far in Taiwan owning the white one pictured above. When Yulon Nissan began taking pre-orders in late 2008, Martin put his name down and took delivery in May 2009 from the Taipei Nissan High Performance Center (NHPC). From that day on he has been subject to much attention on the road as the GT-R is as much a rockstar in Taiwan as it is elsewhere. From camera flashes from passers-by to being filmed on his drive home.

As most people outside the US and Japan have come to realise, the GT-R is no cheap toy and Taiwan is no exception to that. Even at around $157,000 USD mark MSRP Martin still thinks it’s great value for money.

From experience with both GT-Rs and my own long road trips across Taiwan’s mountain and coastal roads I whole heartedly agree!

What about the GT-R scene in Taiwan and where is it headed? With Japan being just a quick hop away, easy access to tuning parts is extremely useful. There’s already a Mine’s dealership and a couple of Mine’s tweaked 600hp R35’s in country. He’s also pretty confident we’ll be seeing a couple of big HP Trust-T6 turbo kit fitted GT-Rs on the streets of Taiwan just as soon as they become available.

Can’t wait to see them next time I’m in Taiwan.
