Eric Strickland: 1996 Nissan Skyline GT-R

Eric Strickland started looking for his dream Skyline project in early 2007, and finally found it by February of 2008 in its bone stock form. As soon as he picked up his 1996 Nissan Skyline GT-R, he began building with the help of Alamo Autosports. With an emphasis on track use and street driving, Strickland's Skyline GT-R has been transformed inside and out with driving in mind.
