Nissan opened up a website called Drive where they created a questionnaire for Skyline owners to share their thoughts, ideas, pictures or anything related to their Skylines. They called it My Life, My Skyline. If you have a few minutes (or rather more hours) to spare you can browse all the comments by all these proud Skyline owners and sometimes you can even find a rare gem between them, like this Family Album Treasure:
True Carboy style with your friends somewhere in the mid eighties. Don Johnson is playing Sonny Crockett in Miami Vice in a white suit and pink shirt. The pictures description by its uploader is “Together youth…” and there is not a better fitting description I guess.

Don’t laugh, but this magazine was actually the Christmas present from my wife!
When I was in Hungary during the holidays my wife bought this magazine in the Tesco because she knows I like old rusty cars. Especially the name of the magazine is an Hungarian pun and would roughly translate into rustpile. She thought of it as a joke and so did I…
Until I opened up the magazine halfway and found this feature of an immaculate second generation Honda Accord coupe:
Nice, huh? It reminded me of this Honda Accord coupe near my son’s school.
Even nicer was this picture: Read the rest of this entry →

Carboy magazine has been known for its tuning specials and finding old issues really show some great and weird things! Now this old cover is interesting: Carboy Magazine showing with big letters on its cover “Goodbye 2T-G”!
Carboy Magazine may 1983
Now what is that all about? From what I understand it speaks about TRD dropping support for the 2T-G engines. Probably in favor of the 3T-G(TE), 4AG(E) and 1G-G(TE) engines. Yeah, they were great engines too!

As Japanese Nostalgic Car Magazine. I already received the first issue yesterday!
So now I can place this banner here:
It made me wonder if it would be worthwile to import them bulk and send them locally to people in Europe. Of course that’s the AEU86 shop spirit I still have…
Unfortunately the double shipping is killing the costs: a yearly susbscription would be somewhere near 36 euros in the most ideal situation (80 or more subscriptions) and that would only cover the costs, so no risk compensation or anything. Too bad, otherwise it would have been another challenge.

Yesterday I decided upon taking a subscription on Japanese Nostalgic Car magazine and also bought some of their fine stickers. Of course I took the subscription including the first issue!
This is what the first issue looks like:
The issue features the Datsun 240Z, 510, 40th anniversary of the Mazda Rotary, 50th birthday of the Skyline and much more. Can’t wait to hold the first issue actually in my hands and read about all the stories.
Great to see how the new media can make a switch to the old media as well.
