From Rocky Auto to the US: Steve's Hakosuka Nissan Skyline Hardtop

June 27, 2015

Back in December 2013 I visited Rocky Auto in Okazaki. Lurking in amongst a sea of Fairladys & Skylines was this outrageously overfendered Hakosuka Hardtop.

The C10 Series Skyline was built from 1968 to 1972. This Skyline Hardtop was built in 1972. It has a 2,800cc inline 6 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
