Old and clunky, like you were saying but also pretty laggy. There is a world of difference between the modern turbo motors and 90's tech.
It basically felt like a S14 Nissan 240SX with better noises, a decent hit of power when it came on, and an AWD system like I had not experienced before that would engage the front wheels when the car started to slide to pull the car straight rather than having a tendency to understeer easily.

I think it was one of those don't meet your heros kinda things. The R33 was always the Skyline I liked the most growing up, most people seem to dislike it for whatever reason.

I also rented the Honda S660 kei car in Noda then drove it up to Motegi to see the Honda Heritage Museum at Twin Ring.

What if I told you you could purchase a manual transmission, 6 cylinder JDM car with only 14,000 miles for just $4k?? Just happened today on Bring a Trailer.
