Friday Video: Keiichi Tsuchiyas old drift cars

We all know that Keiichi Tsuchiya loves his kouki Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86 drift car, but did you know he owned a couple of other legendary cars before that? For instance this Nissan Skyline 2000GT GC10?

In this Best Motoring video Keiichi Tsuchiya explains what cars he used privately to tear up the touges: a Nissan Skyline 2000GT GC10, a Nissan Sunny 1200 GX5 B110, a Toyota Starlet S KP61 and a Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-V AE86.

Car chases: J-tin lovers eat your heart out!

Another J-tin destruction mix video by 44magnumM29 and this time most definitely not for the fain hearted: in the first half minute a blue hakosuka Skyline is bumpercar-ed into scrap metal. Don’t worry: it is only a short nosed four door GC10. ;)

Also watch out for several Toyota Centuries and kujira Crowns to be blown up!

And a bonus question: can anyone guess the car featured from 1:04 till 1:40?

BTW: the drama series is not named (44magnumM29 is afraid it gets removed) and stunt work is performed by stuntman Mike and his team.

Commerical time: Long drive Skyline GC10

I think I posted a few of these commercials sometime before, but most of the videos have been removed from Youtube in the meantime. Hopefully these won’t disappear since they are not ripped from the DVD.

Even before the famous Ken and Mary C110 commercials Nissan was marketing the Skyline to be the car for the young and sporty couples, including the G18 Skyline GC10 deluxe around 9:08. Funny how his beret changes into a hat within a few seconds…

Don’t be fooled by the first commercial: that’s a model from the previous S50 generation Skyline.

Mental note: If I ever buy a Skyline C10 I’ll definitely have to buy a beret as well!

Commerical time: Hakosuka commuter

Fourty two years ago there was a businessman returning home from his work in his new shiney Nissan Skyline GC10. Judging from the short nose it is almost certainly powered by the G-15:

It is also funny to see the comparison with the Japanese Grand Prix winning Nissan R381 #20. That would certainly be a good reason to wear those leather gloves during daily commute. ;)
