Japanese Rustoseums: two stacked Nissan Skyline KPGC10 GT-Rs

December 15, 2014 in rustoseums

It doesn’t happen often to find a pair of stacked Nissan Skyline KPGC10 GT-Rs in a junkyard, let alone one of them chopped in half. A half rusted Skyline in a junkyard and half overgrown is obviously a great subject for photography. That’s why I found it not odd to find the same stacked (half) Nissan Skyline KPGC10 GT-R twice on the interwebs:

First stack is a Nissan Skyline KPGC10 on top of a Nissan Skyline C210. The Mazda Savanna (RX-7) in front of these two Skylines still appears as if it could just drive off and fence off its (rusty) fate.

Getting a bit closer made me suspect that the top Skyline actually only exists out of the rear part: Read the rest of this entry →

Just found this amazing LEGO build by ylan (Dylan Denton) where he built a 1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R KPGC10 from scratch:
1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R
Just amaze yourself about all the little details in this build: it has the black overfenders, GT-R front lip, recessed hood with the round headlights, fender mirrors and the little black spoiler at the rear.

And even from behind he made square tail lights: Read the rest of this entry →

Family Album Treasures: Slot-magged Hakosuka Skyline

May 12, 2012 in Family Album Treasures

Back in 1975 when I was only seven months old and had great difficulty breaking out of the playpen this guy had his picture taken next to his pride an joy:
Slot-magged Hakosuka Skyline KPGC10
Apart from the coolness factor of the sweater, Slot-mags and the sea in the background, me posing next to a Hakosuka Skyline KPGC10 would definitely end up in the Family Album!

Found at Kanazawa19
