Skyline History, Part 1.

December 18, 2008

Now, those who know me, those who know of me and even some random people who encounter me on the street.  All seem to know for one reason or another, that I’m a fan of Skyline automobiles.  In-particular, the older ones.  The ones from before when the masses seem to think they were even made.  I guess that, in order to be the owner of 1963 and 1973 variants of the Skyline range, you’d surely have to like them at least a little bit, right?

So, what I thought I would do, is create a history series, that will cover a good part of what I know about the cars, right from the start.  The bits that most people miss out in articles because they’re not “sporty” enough, or the bits they chose to exclude because it wasn’t indicative of the now legendary racing lineage.  All that kind of jazz.

So, without further delay and ranting, I shall begin…

The name itself comes from a few years prior to the production of the car.
