This is by far the best plastic toddler car I have seen so far, the blue Calsonic Skyline R34:
I wish I could have given one of these Calsonic Skyline R34s to my son instead of that horrid Smoby toddler car he got from one of my aunts. What is cooler than having your son imitate the Japanese Grand Touring Championship (JGTC) in your living room? By far one of the greatest treasures to keep in your family album!
This photo was shot by the guy who runs the Restive Horse blog on Minkara and this a gift for his son’s first birthday. You can really see he receives the R34 with great pleasure!
Found at Restive Horse
(BTW: anyone familiar what an Honolulu BBQ is?)

Last week I featured the footage of the Over Drivin’ Nissan Skyline memorial game and I promised to do a follow up on the Over Drivin’ Nissan GT-R.
After rediscovering the Skyline memorial I started to search for in game videos and I stumbled upon BrutallyHonestGamer’s review of the Sega Saturn Over Drivin’ Nissan GT-R game. I must say I share his view on the game for a great degree. That is up till the point when he makes this remark on the Nissan Skyline GT-R PGC10: This rustbucket here… I mean… I guess they had to put something in there, but really did Nissan had anything better to put in a game? It looks like a Buick!
The car list of this game is as following:
- Nissan Skyline PGC10
- Nissan Skyline KPGC110
- Nissan Fairlady 240ZG
- Nissan 180SX Type X
- Nissan Silvia K’s S14a
- Nissan Fairlady Z32 (300ZX)
- Nissan Skyline BNR32
- Nissan Skyline BNR33
You can watch the remark in the video below at 3 minutes and 17 seconds: Read the rest of this entry →

When I watched this Seibu Keisatsu video by AE86Lan I thought I was watching a Tom and Jerry cartoon instead of a Nissan Datsun Truck chasing a Nissan Laurel C130 sedan. Chief Daimon’s men borrow a Nissan Datsun Truck (aka the Datsun 720 crew cab) over a couple of hills into the docks:
Especially the cartoonish chase between the stacks of pallets is hilarious! You know the sort of chase: going in on side and getting out from the other. It’s something like that!
Watch the video below for the big finale involving a Nissan Skyline KGC110: Read the rest of this entry →
