    Greetings everyone. New owner of an 86 GN here. It's got about 29,000 original miles and, as far as I can tell, is stock. Looking forward to learning more and really get into it. Anyone know any good GN shops or gurus in the metro Atlanta area? Thanks. IMG_0899.JPG IMG_0902.JPG IMG_0913.JPG

    Welcome. Nice ride.
    I love it when the term original miles is used because I have 5,000 original miles on my car, with 65,000 aftermarket miles (after the mods). Lol just poking a little fun.
    It looks like it has aftermarket valve cover breathers and probably a cap on the turbo inlet bell that keeps oil out of the intercooler as well as an aftermarket cold air kit. Both very good mods.
    I love the color!

    Nice find with low mileage. A lot less 86's than 87's. Welcome to the board.
