Giving Zilla A Breath: Maya Gann-Bociek's 1987 Nissan Skyline

Here’s one you don’t see every day! There’s something so retro-cool about the R31 Skyline that predated the “Godzilla” models we all know and love. Being such a rare platform, some people may never lay eyes on one of these, let alone one with an RB25DET engine swapped in! It was hard not to love this thing.
