Robert Fragoso: 1989 Nissan Skyline GT-R

Robert Fragoso grew up with an insatiable love for the R34 GT-R. Two years after joining the USAF, he was sent to Japan where he started looking. Since the R34 wouldn't be eligible for import back to the states, he settled on a 1989 Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 instead. After leaving Japan after plenty of time there, it took another eight months for his prized GT-R to make it home. The car sat for another two years without modifications until Fragoso kicked things into high gear and finished building the wild GT-R we see today.
