Commercial time: jumping Skyline Japan

I think I’ve posted up this fifth generation Skyline commercial before, but I’m not sure about it… What I’m positive about is that I never posted up the small Nissan Langley commercial after it!

Vintage video: Akita cruise in a Skyline Japan

I really enjoyed this vintage video from 1983 taken from the backseat of a Skyline Japan C210. The Skyline cruises around the Akita prefecture where you can see a lot of old Japanese cars (back then quite new): a Skyline C110, a Bluebird 910 and a Suzuki Fronte SS40 to name a few. Also quite a few car dealerships and parking lots are passed by and you can actually see some secondhand cars lined up that are considered rare nowadays.

Commercial time: I love (Skyline) Japan

I did post all the Skyline Japan commercials a year ago, but that users videos were removed (due to copyright infringement). Lucky enough I found another account who posted up a max-and-match version of it (perhaps official Nissan material?) with the official I love Japan song:

Somehow these videos don’t look that old anymore. May it has to do with the fashion nowadays?
