The quality of this picture is too low to determine the exact type of the Skyline GC10, but at least we can make out that it is the later type…

In the background more late 60s/early 70s J-tin and judging from the clothes the picture is definitely taken somewhere in the early 70s…
When I posted part 9 (with the Celica XX, MR2 and Silvia S13) on Facebook I replied to Matti Alasaari that there were even sadder pictures than that. As promised they are going to be posted here: three Nissan Skyline GC10s!
First of all this sad KGC10 coupe is rusting away:
Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-X KGC10
This KGC10 is the coupe version of the Skyline 2000 GT-X, but it does have the tail lights of the KPGC10 GT-R. You can distinguish it from the KPGC10 by looking at the rear arches: they haven’t been cut nor flared. Of course it is a famous upgrade to flare the rear arches and sell it to some foreigner as a GT-R, so there is still potential in this car! 😉
Now it is unclear what trim this GC10 used to be:
Nissan Skyline GC10
Way beyond sanity and it will never be restored I guess…
This one is a bit easier:
Nissan Skyline GC10
It has no flared arches, got a zenki grille and headlight surrounding, so unmistakeably this is a Skyline 1500 GC10. 🙂
Now even putting the lowest grade (1500) of these Skylines on a junkyard is already a shame!
La la la la laaaa!
Damn, commercials were cheesy back in the late 60s! Lucky for us the Skyline itself wasn’t that cheesy! 😉
Personally I like these GC10 commercials better than the famous GC110 Ken&Mary commercials (note that a young Ken and Mary already star in some of these commercials!). Perhaps it has to do with the sporty image of the GC10 model range?
The same user uploaded a few other Skyline commercials as well, so I will post them spread over the upcoming week!
I saw this amazing video containing all Japanese Nissan Skyline commercials being announced a few weeks back on a Minkara blog:

This DVD covers almost all models: from the second generation (S50), third generation (C10 aka hakosuka), fourth (C110 aka Kenmeri) and up to the tenth generation (R34)!
Some hobbies can be very expensive: for instance owning a Nissan Skyline C10 GT-R can already be very expensive, but driving one hard on a owners trackday may become even more expensive!

I wonder what the total of this line of cars (without the Lambo) would be worth. I counted at least 2 genuine KPGC10s, 1 genuine KPGC110 and at least 6 GC10s. That’s probably worth at least half a million euros. 😮
