Im Dave from mansfield, nottinghamshire
Most of you know me anyway so going to keep it brief
I know most ■■■■■ owners and remain friends with most of them but the lack of events and forum use
Been a obsessed owner since 2009.
owned my 1996 since 2009 and like many on here plowed thousands into it.
All work was carried out by myself apart from respray and steel designs on ducktail etc (i just overseen it, measurements and all that)
heres the car
Ive also attended the
2013 Chicago meet
and the very latest was the
Texas 3S gathering in sept 2017…
they opened my eyes for true car lovers.
It looks like you guys have fun in events and meets and its something ive never done much of here.
I go to TOTB every year and compete for the laugh.
Did 11.6 at 126mph at totb 2015 with kinugawa 19t turbos ,stockengine and tesco fuel.
Rebuilt my engine with forged goodies.
made external wastegates with dump pipes with TD04 manifolds in 2016 (sounded frickin amazing)
Just finished making up TD05 evo 16G turbo setup and using kinugawa internal actuators with external dump pipes
Mapped my own car using the 99 Clone ecu and Chrome software.
I dont want to talk too much on the bragging rights section LOL.
Im an open book and love to learn new things and skills hopefully attend a gto uk event this year.

Hi Dave , welcome over to our side of the GTO world
If it’s meets you want you will get plenty here and forum activity
Welcome along Dave - a really nice car. Would be great to see you at some of the events that we are looking to attend this year. A great way to introduce yourself is at the AGM in early May - we are also going on a brewery tour - be quick as spaces are limited.
Welcome back mate glad to see you on here.
Dave try to come to Silverstone meet in may.
Be nice to see you

Welcome. Not too far from you. (Chesterfield) Going to be getting a summer meet sorted at clumber if your interested. Did you scrap a 3000gt in red about 4 years ago?

Steve and I have seen your car at TOTB don’t think we have officially met though.
Loads going on this year in the GTOUK Calender if getting your car out there to shows is what you enjoy.
Welcome back to UK
Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh…
As others have said lots of meets this year coming up and a very active forum, so your in the right place.
Thanks for nice comments and welcome all…
Would love to attend a gto meet. Will check out the meet diary?
Yes dude broke a red 3000gt some years ago.
Next month breaking a green 98 3000gt aswell lol.
Yes a local meet sounds good to me dude.
Tracie… Yes I seen your green Hulk car drive past the car park but I was on my way out home. Be nice to see that I’ve heard alot of effort been put into that car…
It will be nice to see gtos patched together in one space. My kinda scene.
Admittedly I’m not a car guy. Keep myself to myself (sad really lol). However I’m into Gto/3000gts so that’s what brings me here
Welcome back on board, first event is at the NEC 23-25th this month, be good to meet if you fancy coming along. Like the spoiler.
welcome to gtouk lovely looking car

As Tracy says seen your car a few times at TOTB, it’s not hard to miss as it’s stunning.
Looks like we are close Sheffield/Mansfield so could try and get a few cars for a local meet one weekend.
Anyway welcome to GTOUK
I’m from nottingham only 5mins down the road
