Rediculously cool Skyline sunset

This is one of the most brilliant photos I’ve seen so far this year: a sunset with the most beautiful Skyline lineup you can imagine! Obviously it now sits on the background of my desktop. 🙂

The photo was taken by Mikuni Auto at the third Hiroshima old car meeting. The meeting itself was, obviously, a charity event for the Japanese Red Cross.

Video: 1971 Japanese Grand Prix astonishing domination by Nissan

JPN (Edit 2021: Rocketpencil no longer exists) uploaded another astonishing video: the 1971 Japanese Grand Prix held at Fuji International Speedway!

It consists out of three races: the Touring A (1600cc) class, Touring B (2000cc) class and the Grand Touring class, translating into Bluebird, Skyline and Fairlady Z.

All non-Nissanians will complain I over simplified the outcome of the 1971 Japanese Grand Prix a bit. Yes there are indeed other cars (like the Mazda RX-2) but that’s what the main field and winners looked like: a dominating Nissan. Only later that year the Mazda RX-3s broke the winning victory streak of those menacing Skylines…
