I acquired 15k to spend for a journey… I really like rx7s however ofc everyone knows that’s a pipe dream… so now I feel I may be taking a look at skyline gtst’s… I’ve heard it’s attainable to get one for 15k… I simply don’t know learn how to discover one… can anybody supply some recommendation or possibly level me in the best path???

Do NOT buy any turbo R32 for 15k. You will be getting the bottom of the barrel, and it WILL Ave rust.
Where do you live? Even in my country nz where skylines are more common than USA the prices for a non fucked skyline gtst is more than 15k
You can find plenty for sale through Facebook marketplace groups. There are a lot of buy / sell groups for skylines in the US. There is even a Carolina skylines group, though less sales on there. If you don’t want to do a private purchase and prefer an importer, you could check out jdm classics in Virginia. The price of gtsts has gone up though and a clean coupe with a gtr frontend like you have pictured will run in the low 20s now. For 15k you will likely find a reasonable project though. Good luck. Also I know of an fd rx7 roller being sold for 15k right now as well from searching the various groups I’m in.
a running, non rusted, not clapped skyline for $15k in the USA is a pipe dream. if you’re just now trying to buy a JDM classic for a reasonable price, you’re already too late. you can find other good entry level newer cars for that price like a 350z, 300zx non-turbo, etc. i was buying a 240sx 10 years ago and decided to get a Mustang GT instead because it was nicer at the time, now i’m kicking myself for not buying the 240
Z32 Twin turbo is a pretty cool and fun car
how do you plan to use the car (daily, project, novelty, etc)
where do you live
what are your goals in a car?
also as a rule of thumb: if the person offering you advice doesn’t own a JDM car, ignore them.
my money is a JDM car isn’t the move, but i want to hear what you want one for
Skyline is the way to go if can find on for under 15k much more reliable
