Rocky Auto's 'Carbon' Hakosuka Nissan Skyline

January 02, 2014

Yes, the video of the legendary Rocky Auto 'Carbon' Hakosuka is here. I made an appointment with Mr Watanabe himself and upon arrival he showed me the door.

The C10 Series Skyline was built from 1968 to 1972. This Skyline Hardtop was built in 1971. It has a 2,627cc inline 6 engine.
