Friday Video: Rotary vs Skyline by Best Motoring

June 20, 2014 in video

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 →

WTF: child caged in a Skyline DR30

September 3, 2012 in wtf

Almost two years ago I spotted the Restive Horse car club on the Garage Pleasure blog and I started following them since. I was a bit surprised to find this picture this morning:
Child caged in a Restive Horse DR30
That’s his daughter Miss Hasemi (yes, that’s really her name!) sitting in the best protected spot of the car enroute to the KCAR Autopolis meeting.
