I’m a sucker for automotive history, especially when it’s about such an iconic car. If your a car enthusiast the Skyline for some is the end all be all. Heck, for many years, the Japanese didn’t even allow Hakosuka’s to even leave the island. It was and is such an honored car. It’s awesome to see where it all came from, through Prince Motor Company, and the influence of the race track. Keeping up with some of the fastest cars of it’s time must have been an amazing feat and is what would bring on it’s HUGE popularity and success. And as they say, the rest is history.
Another addition to feed that classic addiction a lot of us have, is a pair of classic Nissan Skyline’s. These two are owned by a two guys associated with Fatlace over in Cali. I think most of us would dream to own either one, let alone get a chance to modify them to the state these are in. Mark’s newest addition to the Hakosuka is the Work CR01 wheels. Which are a favorite for me, with 15×11’s in the back and a lovely fat tire. It fills the fender and improves fitment over the last set of wheels he had. I am truly in love!
I’ll probably be busy all day tomorrow, so I’ll throw a quick post up here. Happy fathers day to all the dad’s out there! Keep up the good work! Below is a picture of my fathers favorite car, and a car I will buy him one day. The perfect combination of comfort and speed. Enjoy!
I could only imagine what it is like to own a vintage Skyline. It’s a dream for many, including myself. I mean I have yet to even see one in person yet. They all seem to be on the west coast, which makes sense. But to actually own one, that must be an overwhelming experience, being behind the wheel of a car that is wanted by all car enthusiasts around the world. A great video from Depth of Speed showing a guy who is absolutely in love with his new car.
I have always had a huge love for vintage european and japanese cars. To be honest I just haven’t had the funding the build one, but times are changing and I am currently building a ’75 Volkswagen Rabbit and plan on my next project to be a vintage japanese car. There is just something about them that encompass so much character and soul. It’s a beautiful thing. I came across this picture and fell in love with it. These are two cars I would LOVE to own. Even better, that they are racing, like they should. I would love to bring something like this to the states. One step at a time.
There is nothing I love more then classic Nissan Skyline’s. I seriously hate that we never got them in the US. But I think it makes us appreciate classic Japanese cars that much more. I sure there is a huge market for these, so they aren’t let go for cheap, but I WILL own some classic Skyline before I die. lol Anyways, below are pictures taken from Super Street Magazine on a utra-modded mid-70’s example. This car is seriously beautiful. Your looking at a fully restored piece of Japanese history.
One day, one day.
I drool every time I look at it,
Not much as far as content is concerned today. But I did come across this picture of another Hakosuka. This time it’s a 4 door in a very fun color. It reminds me of what a Skyline race car would look like back in the 70’s. Really great looking car.
