I couldn’t figure anything more suitable for valentine’s day than this mix and match of the fifth generation Skyline commercials with the punchline I love Japan.
Obviously this punchline gave the C210/C211 the nickname Skyline Japan. (Video can be found on the next page) Continue reading
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!
This first generation Langley looks awfully similar to its bigger Skyline Japan brother!
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.
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?
Now is this little girl doing baton twirling or Bojutsu in front of her daddy’s C210?
Bojutsu Skyline C210
It surely is a very nice Skyline Japan: presumably a 2000GT with some deep dish SSR Mk1s (I reckon something like 8J) and (after market?) front fenders with big breathing gills! And in the background a nice Mark II X30 hardtop coupe and what looks like the headlights of an Isuzu 117 coupe.
According to the source the picture was taken around 1990. Found at uvj*9’s blog
