    I was working at house today, and i saw a black 350z drive by

    nice i thought, looks good, then as it drove by i noticed the back end and it had SKYLINE lettering under the nissan badge, and another badge on the right side that i didnt recognize, but it wasnt a 350z badge

    i was like :wtf:

    the base skyline is the same as a G35 Coupe....they are going to release the GTR model of the skyline(like type R) in US in 2005 I think....the 350Z with skyline badge = rice....the 350Z is the equilvent of nissan Fairlady Z.

    Knowing the kinda person you are, it was probably just a G35 coupe. You just can't tell the difference.

    03RSX-S is right.
    G35 = Skyline
    350 = Fairlady
    GT-R = 2007 (last I heard)

    Well Nissan has Stageas and Skylines in the US for testing, so you probably saw a real Skyline.

    You're not the first to see it.
