Family Album Treasures: be cool in dad’s Yonmeri Skyline

May 28, 2010 in Family Album Treasures

The photographers eldest son is showing he is just as cool as his dad in the Yonmeri GC110 Skyline:
Family Album Treasure: Nissan Skyline GC110
Family Album Treasure: Nissan Skyline GC110

Why did my dad never own a Yonmeri?? Well at least I hope my son will be as cool as this kid in the Carina! :P

[Found on Yahoo blogs]

BTW: I renamed the Shoebox gems to Family Album Treasures since that is fitting the category a bit better…

Family album treasures: Flared Nissan Skyline GTX

May 27, 2010 in Family Album Treasures

You probably thought the flared Skyline was about a Skyline with some widened arches, well you are wrong about that!

Yep, this Minkara user was a genuine owner of a moss green Skyline GTX back in the 70s!

Commerical time: the Ken and Mary you never saw

May 20, 2010 in Commerical time

I’m glad Hide7031 did not post up the too well known Ken&Mary Skyline commercials. These eight relatively unknown commercials were actually a quite a surprise for me:


I did say I liked the GC10 commercials better than the Ken&Mary ones, but I do have to admit I think the fourth Ken&Mary (GT) commercial is the best so far: showing the GT on a trailer (racing purpose?), Skyline waving goodbye with its rear wiper and then showing Ken and Mary with a bunch of binoculars as if they are watching a race…

Stay tuned for more commercials! :)

Vintage 1976 Nissan Skyline C110 brochure + posters

April 5, 2010 in nissan skyline

Just found this vintage 1976 Nissan Skyline GC110 brochure + posters in an auction on Ebay:
Nissan Skyline C110 brochure + posters
Nissan Skyline C110 brochure + posters

It does not only contain the GC110, but also posters of Ken and Meri, older Skylines (from 1957 onwards) and some racing cars(R380, R381 and the 50 victories by the Skyline!)

The Buy-me-now is right (39,95 AUD) but together with the shipping it is a bit steep… So if anyone wishes to give me a birthday present on the 16th, this is a good gift! ;)

You can find the auction here:

And hurry: the auction ends on the 11th of April!

Video: Skyline C110 JDM versus EU/AU

January 21, 2010 in video

Ever wondered what the difference is between the taillights of a EU/AU 240K GT GC110 and a JDM Skyline C110?


JDM on the left, EU/AU on the right.
I must say I like the JDM a lot better than the EU/AU spec. Let alone for having the double brakelights. ;)
