JDM Trivia #3: Nissan Gloria Jack Nicklaus edition
This is JDM Trivia number three!
Daniel O’Grady from Wasabi Cars guessed last weeks teaser: the man is indeed Jack Nicklaus and his connection with Nissan is the Nissan Gloria.
The Golden Bear
Jack Nicklaus, also nicknamed The Golden Bear, is regarded as the greatest professional golfer ever. Within the 25 years when he was actively competing he won 18 major championships. Most car manufacturers like to get a bit of that fame and glory with their classy cars and Nissan wasn’t the only one to line up for Jack Nicklaus. Read the rest of this entry →
It can’t get more VIP than with this Nissan Gloria Brougham VIP Y30! If not only for its interior, but also for its smooth VG30ET 3 liter V6 turbo engine! Apparently Youtube user iwa730 wants to share its luck with us:
Its got about everything Nissan and the Japanese innovation could cram into that 185 inch long ship: cruise control, active suspension, cruise control and radio controls on the steering wheel, auto transmission with sports switch, radio with tapedeck, aircon, leather seats, pluche door cards, adjustable power mirrors, code protected driver side door, genuine hardtop roof, wire wheels and the list is probably ten times longer than this!
Also the car is in great imbalance: the V-30-turbo Brougham VIP badge is about ten times as heavy as the Nissan badge on the other side of the car! 😀
Anyone wants to trade his Nissan Gloria Brougham VIP for my Carina TA60? 😛
I found this damn nice Hungarian Nissan Gloria hardtop 430 for sale on Autoscout:
For sale: damn nice Nissan Gloria 430
Also all pictures of the Gloria are just as beautiful as the Gloria itself! I didn’t even know that Nissan actually sold the 430 in Europe! Price is not even touching 6K euros, so a definite want!
Only drawback is that all these images of what I could do with it keep popping up in my head… Something like Team Madonna did for instance… So maybe a no go for me…
