Video: LHD Nissan Skyline 240K in Kuwait

October 23, 2013 in video

There have been only a few places around the world that actually got LHD Nissan Skylines during the late 60s and 70s: (some countries in) Europe and the Middle East.

But using (presumably) a Datsun 240K HGLC110 as crushing material equals sadness to me. ;(

According to the source it is in the Netherlands or Belgium. Since I don’t think the houses and streetsigns match any generic Dutch town it must have been the Belgians who were out of their minds in the early 80s. ;)

Amazing what you can do with a Kenmeri Skyline, Hakosuka Skyline, Fairlady Z, some photoshop skills and fooling around with different JDM styles:
