Video: LHD Nissan Skyline 240K in Kuwait

October 23, 2013 in video

There have been only a few places around the world that actually got LHD Nissan Skylines during the late 60s and 70s: (some countries in) Europe and the Middle East. Most Europeans did not care very much for Japanese cars and our climate isn’t that friendly to them either, so guess where you can find them nowadays…

Bingo! ;)

In the Middle East the rust monster leaves them alone and their only thread is a bunch of Kuwaitis hooning a couple of LHD Datsun 240K C110s and C210s: Read the rest of this entry →

WTF: Aussie Spares Datsun C110 banger racer

Apparently Aussie Spares only cares for Vailiant, Falcon and Holden and not for vintage JDM tin…

I think Ken and Mary would disapprove…

WTF: Monstertruck crushing a Skyline C110

We all know this little equation is right: Monstertruck + old cars = madness…

But using (presumably) a Datsun 240K HGLC110 as crushing material equals sadness to me. ;(

According to the source it is in the Netherlands or Belgium. Since I don’t think the houses and streetsigns match any generic Dutch town it must have been the Belgians who were out of their minds in the early 80s. ;)

Japanese Rustoseums (part thirty-one)

October 10, 2011 in rustoseums

Sad but true: I’m already at part thirty-one of this series! :(
This time I have a video from the land down under where the Datsun are so unloved that they are rusting away somewhere in a junkyard. The video has the suitable title Where Datsuns go to die.

I counted two 240K coupes, two 240K sedans and a bunch of other interesting Datsuns like a Cedric 220 and 330! What a terrible shame!
