The storyline of this episode of Seibu Keisatsu is simple: some bad guys stole a bunch of cars (a Nissan Fairlady Z S30 and a pigsbutt Nissan Laurel C130) and Chief Daimon and his men are chasing the truck they are loaded on.
The Machine RS-1 (Nissan Skyline DR30) seems to have gotten an upgrade with blazingly new computers that can follow a transceiver (note the misspelling at 0:31) and lead them to the bad guys. Chief Daimon joins the chase with his Nissan Fairlady Z 200Z-T. Other notable cars are the civilian Nissan 260Z 2+2 and a Nissan Gloria 230 sedan (no hardtop) crashing with a Nissan Bluebird-U.
Of course in the end, as always, the bad guys get away before they can be caught.

And I posted the big finale some time ago and you can find it here.
Back in the early 70s Mazda and Nissan fought for the grand championships with their rotaries (RX-2 and RX-3) and their Skyline GT-Rs (KPGC10 and PGC10) and Best Motoring is reliving those fierce battles with a bit more modern machines in Hot Version 52 (Rotary vs Skyline):
Unfortunately by the time Group 5 races emerged in Japan this meant the cars used never were the actual production cars anymore. So what Best Motoring did was to line up cars that never battled with each other and they range from early 80s till early noughties.
My personal favorite is the battle between the Mazda RX7 SA22C (tuned by REOS) and the Nissan Skyline RS Turbo DR30 (tuned by Escort) and you can watch this battle in the video below: Read the rest of this entry →
It has been a while since this link entered my linkdump, but it kept popping up now and then. Basically during a Skyline meetup this Skyline owner took a couple of pictures of this lowered Tekkamen Nissan Skyline DR30:
Shakotan is generally connected with zokusha and mad camber cars but actually it means low car…
As a follow up on yesterdays Restive Horse cage post another picture from the KCAR Autopolis meeting:
So how many Skyline DR30s can you count in this picture?
And to win a small prize: how many tekamen (iron mask) can you count in this picture?
