Rest Assured: Kitakyushu Kaido-Racer Nissan Laurel GX - KPC130

June 04, 2016

I often see this Kaido Racer in and around car shows in Northern Kyushu. The car is of course a Butaketsu Laurel Hardtop.

The C130 Series Laurel was built from Apr 1972 to Jan 1977. This Laurel hardtop was built in 1973. It has a 3,000cc inline 6 engine.

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>
