Recently I had the opportunity to experience any car enthusiast’s wet dream. Before you get too many ideas – it was to visit a car meet. It was unlike any other car meet I’ve been to in recent times, and I’ll tell you why – it was a Nissan GTR car meet. The Nissan GTR a.k.a Godzilla is one of the most stealth performance machines of its kind.
There are sports cars, supercars, hyper cars and then the GTR. Why do I place the GTR separately you ask? It’s priced right between sports car and super car category, yet performs like a hyper car. I’m not going to get into the details of the car but I did read a fantastic review depicting the performance by AUTOBLOG. The review should already prime you for the excitement I had a privilege to be part of when I was invited to this meet by a friend and a fellow GTR owner.
There aren’t too many GTR’s in Ontario, and every time a meet is held the turn out of the GTR owners isn’t the greatest (I’ve yet to figure that one out) but this time we had NINE GTR’s present amongst us. It’s the highest number recorded according to the folks that meet up during the summer months only. We would’ve had a 10th GTR present as well – but the video will explain why the 10th one didn’t show up.

I will be doing a follow up post on this when I get to spend more time in the 2010 Super Silver GTR as the weather get’s better (in Canada, summer last’s for four months) – but I can tell you one thing about the car that I’ve personally experienced during drives: The car quite literally injects you with testosterone and epinephrine simultaneously letting you blur out your surroundings focusing only on the drive, and giving you a sense of invincibility when you melt the rubber on straight runs or destroy the corners at speeds that could snap your neck, and when you are redlining the monster, the car injects you with Dimethyltryptamine to make the entire experience seem surreal (seriously!).
Now that worked me up a bit – so I must steam off and play some COD: Black Ops (new maps coming in May!)
Thanks for reading!
PS: I apologize for not taking an obscene amount of car porn shots - I didnt have my dSLR with me, and was informed about the meet with a short notice! I promise to have better shots for the follow up!
