WTF: Exhaust pipe routed through Calsonic Nissan Skyline R31

January 11, 2015 in WTF

Being one of the early bloggers about kaido racers (aka bosozoku style) I don’t get a high brow often, but this JTTC Calsonic Nissan Skyline R31 race car replica in the shape of a kaido racer really gave me a WTF:
WTF Exhaust through NIssan Skyline R31
This video features a couple of Showa cars that are either kept (in mint) bone stock or modified to a great extend, including this Nissan Skyline R31 GTS-R. Now the interesting part is why the owner chose to hacksaw a big hole in the floorpan where the passenger seat used to be and routed the exhaust to the side of the car (through the sill) and not chose to do it directly through the sill from the . Or even welded something around the exhaust pipes to keep the noise levels a bit down. On the other hand, this makes the modification more obvious for the eye…

Apart from this Skyline there are the following cars: Toyota Celica GT-R AA63 (unmodified), Dual-Factory green Toyota Publica Starlet KP40, Body-Make Nissan Bluebird 810 coupe kaido racer, kyusha kai pigsbutt Nissan Laurel C130 on Hayashi Sakura rims, kyusha kai Nissan Skyline GT C110 on Racing Hart rims, Toyota Crown MS80 kaido racer, orange Nissan Skyline GT-R KPGC10 and a white G-Nose Nissan Fairlady 240Z S30.

June 6, 2014 in video

Back in December 1987 the very first issue of Best Motoring video became available. The video was a monthly magazine containing not only car news and reviews but also extensive how-to’s on subjects of mastering cornering or drifting. KaKo posted this video in four separate parts:

The first video covers the Nissan MID-4 II, Toyota FXV-Ⅱ and Mitsubishi HSR concept cars. Followed by a short video (in sepia) about the Tokyo Motor Show from the 50s till 80s including the 27th motorshow that just happened days before the release of the video. And last part of the first video covers an extensive test between various cars including the new (second generation) CR-X Si and the Nissan Skyline GTS-X R31. Read the rest of this entry →

Family Album Treasures: which one is the baby-stroller?

April 20, 2012 in Family Album Treasures

I think this possibly the coolest baby mover in the world:
Nissan Skyline R31 baby-stroller
Using ultimate model of the 7th Skyline to move around your baby makes this picture a true family album treasure! I’d certainly put a photo of any R31 GTS-R in my family album, even when it does not feature my newborn child. 😉
