Red Lion Motorsports(RLM) is a family owned business in Flagstaff Arizona that supplies stock and aftermarket parts and accessories from 1920 classics to newer vehicles on the market. The owners Ben (father) and Shane (son), are huge fans of K&N air filters. Ben said, "K&N is also the only filter that we recommend for our customers. I started using K&N filters in 1973 on our flat track bikes. It was the only filter that could keep the dirt out. K&N has proven itself time and time again over the last 40 years. We will only use K&N on every motor that we have."
RLM wanted to keep the factory look of this 1995 Nissan Skyline R33 for SEMA 2012, because they are so rare
A creative touch found on this 1995 Skyline R33 is the inverted decals on the passanger side
Ben and Shane have a passion for performance and have been working on project cars since 2001 and attended SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) for fourteen years. RLM has won numerous awards from their local car shows to SEMA shows, Goodguys events, Import Face-offs, Extreme Autofest events, Hot Import Nights events, and Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational to name a few.
Ben and Shane found the 1995 Nissan Skyline R33 on Craigslist, bought it and transformed it in time for the 2012 SEMA show. There are only a handful of these cars in America being that they were banned after failing crash test standards shortly after their introduction to the U.S. The cars that were already on American soil were "grandfathered" in and given a separate VIN number from the Department of Transportation which made them legal. Not only is this 1995 Nissan Skyline R33 a rare sight to see, so are finding car parts for it. Ben says "We rewired the whole car, put on a new body kit, rebuilt the engine, added new wheels and tires, and tried to keep the car as stock appearance as possible."
