Do you know what’s a nice car that’s virtuous and not bad? The Nissan Skyline GT-R, particularly this R33 from the mid-1990s. Its speed is obsolete and we now can appreciate its manners on their own terms. I want to drive one.

Do I need an orange-over-black Hakosuka Skyline GT-R in my life? No. Very technically, I can survive without it. A sad, hollow survival, but survival nonetheless.
