Family Album Treasures: Turbo Skylining

January 14, 2012 in Family Album Treasures

This guy must have been passing by this beautiful skyline of a lake next to the touge and thought it would be nice to stand between the two skylines! 😉
Skyline RS Turbo R30
This scene also reminds me a bit of the end scene of the first Shuto Kousoku Trial, but I guess that must be the Skyline plus the typical 80s fashion.

Skyline R30 pre production models

December 10, 2011 in nissan skyline r30

I was watching some old Skyline documentaries and stumbled upon this little piece of footage where Shinichiro Sakurai sits inside a wooden pre production model of the Skyline R30:

You can see the lines of the coupe emerging into the real prototypes and from the prototypes to the Skyline RS Formula Silhouette. Nice!

The question is: what is that BMW 7 series doing on the test track??

Car chases: Afterburning Skyline DR30 machine RS-1

March 8, 2011 in Car chases

The Skyline DR30 is one of the most iconic skylines ever and Seibu Keisatsu helped a great deal with that.

Now if only that afterburner option would have been available on the real Skyline RS-Turbo it would have been even more awesome!

This cute little girl uses her daddies new four door Skyline RS-Turbo to cling on while doing her first steps outside in 1984:

I just love the composition of this picture: the Mooneyes logo on the truck is watching this four door Nissan Skyline RS-Turbo DR30!

Yes, the RS-Turbo isn’t Moon Equipped and sits on a set of Formula Meshes… It is just as if the logo was saying: I’m watching you! You’re not even Moon Equipped! 😀

Found in the JCCA NYM 2010 meeting pictures of Life doodling.

Suppose you are a big Seibu Keisatsu fan and want a comfortable daily ride, what would you choose?

Minkara user Ken chose to drive his ER34 as a daily driver and turn the car into a Seibu Keisatsu Machine RS DR30 lookalike!

Even the writing on the side is done in retro styling of the Skyline RS-Turbo: his ER34 reads 4valve DOHC GT-Turbo intercooler on the place where normally the RS-Turbo writing is!

And the whole car is painted in the red and black panda scheme of the Tomica Skyline that was copied over to the RS lineup.

So, to complete his Machine RS34 he also has a set of sunglasses which looks like the ones Chief Daimon had in the Seibu Keisatsu series. (???)

So he couldn’t resist (while wearing the sunglasses and suit) to have his picture taken next to his Machine RS34! ?(´?`)/
