Has anyone had the nerve to convert a Nissan Skyline R32 into a Camaro?

I’m not going to lie to you: I consider myself a firm defender of strictly series cars, or at least those that have mechanical modifications that do not disturb their aesthetic originality. Of course, everyone can do what they like with their money and their car, but that doesn’t stop it from deeply hurting me to see how someone has had the audacity to convert a Nissan Skyline R32 into a Chevrolet Camaro. Was there really a need?

And it is that we are talking about a car that, due to its own weight, has become a myth and the desire of many, feelings that over time have been increasing. It is true that the R32 is not as coveted as the R34, but we are talking about a car exclusive enough to discard the idea of ​​turning it aesthetically into a fifth-generation Camaro.

The day someone preferred to transform a Skyline R32 into a Camaro instead of buying one

The only logical point that I find to the transformation is that it has been carried out in Japan, native country of the Skyline. And it is that at the end of the day there it can be easier to get an R32 than with a Chevrolet Camaro, although taking into account the prices that all generations of the mythical Godzilla are reaching and the massive export of these it will be cheaper to import a unit of the muscle car than turning a Nissan Skyline into one with all that that entails.

And it is that we are talking not only about the purchase price of the Skyline itself, but also about the transformation. A transformation that by the way leaves a front quite identical to that of the original Camaro, although logically with the problems of proportions that exist between one car and another. Be that as it may, it is on the side where we will quickly realize that there is something strange in said creation.

It is there where we appreciate a finer and longer line that leaves behind the typical musculature of the Chevrolet Camaro, although an attempt has been made to correct it by resorting to widened wings and wheel arches. And something similar happens at the rear by not having a short tailgate that is born immediately after a rear window that is also small, but a much longer trunk despite the fact that the parts used in this Frankenstein are those of a Camaro.

Be that as it may, neither the interior nor the engine change, or at least not much. And it is that the interior is still that of a Nissan Skyline except for some Bride seats, an aftermarket knob for the gearbox and a displaced steering wheel. It is in the engine where we find more changes, since this unit hides an RB25 from a Skyline R33, and which produces 400 CV for the occasion.

The best -or worst- of all? What is for sale on Yahoo Japan and you’ve already reached a bid of $23,000a figure that can make it a better option to stretch the budget a bit and get an R32 of origin and faithful to its factory aesthetics.
