Japanese Rustoseums: cutaway Nissan Bluebird SSS 910

Yesterday I posted a cutaway picture of a Suzuki Fronte Coupe LC10W and today I have an even more impressive cutaway car: a Nissan Bluebird SSS 910!

Family Album Treasures: Bluebird 1600 SSS

Yesterday I finally finished a tribute video to the Bluebird for Bosozoku Style I had lying around unfinished for over a year. So I thought it would be nice to post up a Family Album Treasure including a Bluebird!

The Bluebird in the picture is a Bluebird 710 1600 SSS and apparently the whole family is very proud of it too! If I were to own a Bluebird SSS model I’d definitely include a picture in my family album! ;)

Borchures: the super line-up!

Even though Japan was already using unleaded fuel in the early 80s Nissan still made a super line-up!
The Nissan super line-up
This brochure covers all 1982 models by Nissan, but they pictured the Bluebird SSS 910 (Z18E powerd), March K10 and Liberty Villa (based upon the Pulsar N12) at the cover. Personally I would have left out the Liberty Villa from this line-up and replaced it with something with a little bit more oomph like the Leopard, but I guess the Nissan board of directors thought otherwise. ;)
