LaLD Car Week: 1970s Edition -- '71 Nissan Skyline GTR KPGC10

Hello all! It’s been about 7 months since I’ve posted anything...so I guess I oughtta get after it. Car Week seemed like a great time to do so.

I recently (about 2 months ago) contacted our good friend Citizen Patrick, indeed a Model Citizen if ever there was one, after seeing this beauty on his Instagram. It would be mine. Oh yes.

Ever since it arrived, I’ve been meaning to snap some pics and post them up, but there’s always something else to do... Well, after digging around and finally finding the camera tripod (not to mention the camera), I found some favorable light and an evening where idiots weren’t slamming down my street at 45 mph.

We see here AUTOart’s recent 1:18 rendition of Kunimitsu Takahashi’s 1971 Japan GP winning Nissan Skyline GTR.

The interior is beautifully done, with detailed gauges, controls...even down to the grommets in the racing seat. I’ll be honest...I just noticed the rocker sill while writing this and looking at the above picture. AUTOart’s attention to detail just kills me.

The 1:18 version of the 1989cc S20 looks great here.

Sorry, this picture was an afterthought. Really, I just wanted to show that the details continued to the underside.

Thanks for stopping by!
