The 1995 Nissan Skyline GT-R R33 (also known as "Big Bird"[1]) was a minor car in The Fast and the Furious.[2]

History

The Fast and the Furious

The 1995 Nissan Skyline GT-R R33 is one of Leon's personal cars. He drove the 1995 Skyline to Toretto's Market & Cafe alongside Jesse, Letty Ortiz and Vince. Later, during the night, Leon monitored police activity from the inside of his 1995 Nissan Skyline.[2]

He kept a vigil on the streets while the rest of his group watched and participated in the quarter mile race for money and cars. When he overheard the police had discovered what they were doing, he alerted the others racers and retreated to 1327, Dominic and Mia Toretto's house.[2]

Specifications

The 1995 Nissan Skyline GT-R R33 featured a yellow paint job with Modern Image vinyl decals on it. It also had WORK wheels.[references needed]

Destruction

May 31, 2012, the state of Wisconsin ordered that the two models for the 1995 Nissan Skyline GT-R R33 were ordered to be destroyed, after a law in the state of Wisconsin in the USA prevented the ownership of a vehicle that doesn’t have a valid VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), especially for imported vehicles.[1][3][4]

The owner, Justin Beno, also had a second R33 that was crushed as well, due to the fact that he attempted to sell the cars to another person and told them he could get them titled in Florida, unaware the "buyer" was an undercover agent.[3][1][4] Although Beno asked if he could ship the cars to another country, his appeal was denied, and was told he'd be free of charges if he agreed to turn over his Skylines to be crushed and compacted.
