Now this was a big WTF for me: a Toyota Levin AE101 based Nissan Skyline BLRA-3 lookalike!
Toyota Sky-Levin BLRAE101
I can understand a replica car, or even a front end swap (hey, I like those things!) but a lookalike car of a 60s Michelotti design on a 90s car from even a different brand and call it a Sky-Levin? No sir, can’t make any sense out of that!
How much bigger is a Lexus GS300 than a Carina TA60?
Just about this much bigger:
Toyota Carina TA60 and Lexus GS300 JZS147
That is indeed my Carina. On one of the rare occasions when I went to work by car (I live at 5 minutes walking distance from work) and returned to my car I found one of my colleagues parked his Lexus GS300 JZS147 next to my Carina. I just had to take a quick snap!
Music from commercials always have been successful if the product caught on. This was especially the case for the Nissan Skyline in Japan: apparently there were many vinyl records, cassette tapes and CDs sold with the music of the Skyline commercials.
Down on the street on Thursday? Why?
Because it is a sad day for the Nissan 200SX S14 rustoseum:
Nissan 200SX pushing the daisies
The 200SX passed on! This car is no more! He has ceased to be! The S14 expired and gone to meet his maker! He is a stiff! Bereft of life, he rests in peace! He be pushing up the daisies! HIs metabolic processes are now history! He is off the twig! He’s kicked the bucket, He’s shuffled off ‘is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-CAR!! * sorry for misuse of the dead parrot sketch *
When I returned to take beautiful fall pictures of the S14 yesterday it had vanished. As you can see the dead leafs even cover the spot where it once stood:
Nothing but dead leafs
I checked the RDW (Dutch license plate registration) to see if it was now re-registered by someone else, but its entry has been removed from there meaning it is no longer a valid registration. That can either mean it has been sold off to some foreigner or has ended up at some junkyard. I fear for the latter…
