Call us a little biased, but we’re big Nissan fans.
Back in 1983, Bill opened the shop that would later be named Independent Motors — but for those first two years, the focus was Nissans and Datsuns. Since then, Nissan has gone on to create one of the most legendary sports cars of the ‘90s, one of the leading premium makes (Infiniti), and two of the best-selling sedans in America.
For all you other Nissan owners and fans out there, we’ve found 24 fantastic blogs dedicated to the Skyline, Infinitis and other Nissan vehicles.

One Man’s Lonely Adventures In His R33 Skyline GT-R
The owner of the blog One Lonely Man’s Adventures In His R33 Skyline GT-R has been a car fan his entire life. He explains what led him to the Skyline GT-R:
“But being in the US, [I] never could buy a Skyline GT-R, as they were not sold here. Hence when I came to Japan, after learning how to drive on the wrong side of the road in a hand-me-down Honda Civic, I traded up to my 1997 Skyline GT-R…That was in June 2005. This blog started when I first began to get serious about modifying and improving the car.”
