Family Album Treasures: Bluebird 1600 SSS

June 2, 2012 in Family Album Treasures

Yesterday I finally finished a tribute video to the Bluebird for Bosozoku Style I had lying around unfinished for over a year. So I thought it would be nice to post up a Family Album Treasure including a Bluebird!

The Bluebird in the picture is a Bluebird 710 1600 SSS and apparently the whole family is very proud of it too! If I were to own a Bluebird SSS model I’d definitely include a picture in my family album! 😉

In case you are curious about the Bluebird video I made, here it is: Read the rest of this entry →

Toys: vintage Bluebird-U 2000GT RC car

February 20, 2012 in toys

Last week I stumbled across this Nissan Bluebird-U RC car by Bandai:
Bandai Nissan Bluebird U 2000GT RC car
It has dents all over it and the remote control doesn’t look that remote nowadays but back when it was new it was the best you could get!

Just imagine that the boy who used to play with this rare 2000GT hardtop coupe is now old enough to actually have owned several of them! If that is the case I probably already should have owned several 935s by now! 😀

Not at the JCCA New Year Meeting but at one of the parkinglots nearby someone found this Bluebird 410 wagon parked:

And it is Moon equipped with a nice set of white walls that perfectly match with the new white leather/sky interior.

Car chases: Seibu Keisatsu carnage mix!

November 7, 2011 in Car chases

In following of : even more gruesome carnage from the third season of Seibu Keisatsu! (Western Police)
Disclaimer: the two videos are not suitable for fainthearted J-tin enthusiasts!

In the first minute it starts off with a huge explosion and a Nissan Bluebird SSS coupe. Could it be involved in the explosion?

In part 2 even more oldskool Nissans will be killed and if you watch all the way up to 8:01 also a non-Nissan: a Mazda Capella Coupé. Or could it be a RX-2?! Read the rest of this entry →

Video: 1971 Japanese Grand Prix Fuji International Speeday

January 15, 2011 in video

Rocketpencil uploaded another astonishing video: the 1971 Japanese Grand Prix held at Fuji International Speedway!

It consists out of three races: the Touring A (1600cc) class, Touring B (2000cc) class and the Grand Touring class, translating into Bluebird, Skyline and Fairlady Z.

All non-Nissanians will complain I over simplified it a bit. Yes there are indeed other cars (like the Mazda RX-2) but that’s what the main field and winners looked like… Only later that year the Mazda RX-3s broke the winning victory streak of those menacing Skylines…
