So what's this all about?

August 17th, 2015

Put simply, it's a website for people to give me money so I can buy a Nissan GT-R.

I had the idea for the website way back in 2009 when the R35 was about to be released in Australia, but I never had time to actually make the website. So being currently unemployed as the result of a retrenchment I decided to make the Buy me a GT-R website.

Why the Nissan GT-R? I just want one. I've been a Nissan (and Datsun) fan all my life. My first car was a beat up old 240Z. I remember watching Skylines racing at Bathurst in the late 80's. The closest I've come to owning a GT-R is an R31 Skyline GTS, if you don't count the battery operated remote control R35 toy I have.

They are prohibitively expensive in Australia. The Australian Nissan website describes them as "A supercar for anyone, anywhere, anytime", but at nearly $200,000 drive away price, "anyone" means
extremely well off. Which I'm not. I dont even own a house.

So the only way I'm ever going to own a GT-R is if I win the lottery, or the internet crowd-funds a GT-R for me.

There are 2 ways to donate.

The donate link in the top menu will allow you to enter an amount from $1 (US Dollar) upwards.

The second way is to click and drag on the image grid to select a number of tiles and you can upload an image to be displayed on the website (million dollar homepage style). Price is calculated per the number of tiles selected.

I'm taking donations in US Dollars due to the fluctuating Aussie Dollar.
If I raise my target amount in US Dollars, it doesn't matter what the Aussie Dollar is doing. If I raise my target amount in AU Dollars, and it continues to fall, Nissan AU wil increase the GT-R price to compensate
and I wont have enough to own one.
