Spotted: A "Crystal Version" Nissan Laurel Medalist turbo!

September 22, 2012

I got a real surprise when I saw this special edition, 1981 Nissan Laurel. C31 Laurels are super hard to come by.

The C31 Series Laurel was built from Nov 1980 to Oct 1984. This Laurel Hardtop was built in 1984. It has a 1,998cc 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>
