I'd be curious to know as well.

Perhaps it's because everyone flocked to the Z06 Vettes and ZL1 Camaros. These make an easy 50% of the cars I see at DE's in my neck of the woods.

I have a bunch of GTR friends. About half are still passionate and tracking their GTRís. Not as frequently though, work and kids getting in the way. The rest have moved on to McClaren and Porsche. I honestly canít think of any that went Chevy. Itís kind of a step backwards despite the fact their faster out of the box nowadays.

I still remember a drive in a GT-R from a plant manager in Texas, years ago. 880whp, we were doing crazy speeds by the end of the on ramp.

The GT-R has a extremely mechanic feel which is super cool. I'll forgive its ugly looks in exchange for the performance.
I really dislike AWD (and turbos...) so I don't think I'll ever own one, but mad respect for the car.

FWIW the backseats in a GTR are non existent with nothing in the back.. Factor in the kids you're going to have some uncomfortable children.

lol at you wanting back seats and considering a GTR

If back seats is one of your priorities then look for a four door. Because those found in coupes will make you laugh.

Andy Pilgrim right on cue. Doesn't look like a good time to me. If the NISMO understeers like this, not surprised there aren't many standard models at the track anymore. Missile in a straight line and still sounds pretty cool, though.
