Some of you will have seen it mentioned if you read these entries a bit, that Ewan of, (the New Zealander living in Japan who will help you get almost anything you want from there) has a MkII Celica Supra.  I mentioned it somewhere in a previous post.  A while ago, Ewan sent me a bunch of photos of it (I promptly forgot until now, such is my memory)  at which point I realised that I had actually seen the car before, many moons ago on a Toyota site or some such, it’s quite the recognisable car.  I’m sure you will agree.  Firstly, this lump sits nestled under the modified bonnet;

As you can see from the height that the supercharger sits, it required a somewhat abnormal addition for a sleek Japanese 80′s vehicle, though an entirely common one for something from American shores…  (more…)

Seeing the contributions from Zebulonicus on beeoneoneoh recently (Zeb is a Huge Nerd, Pt I. & Zeb is a Huge Nerd, Pt. II) reminded me of the folder full of GT4 pictures on my old USB stick, unfortunately, I couldn’t find that stick so I set about in the weekend trying to take some more pictures from GT4, I realised at the time that my last save game on GT4 is only 50% complete, I can’t be bothered finishing it though, I have all the cars I require for hilariousness amongst them is the entire collection of classic Skylines in just about every colour option available for each car.  Yes.  I am that pathetic.  Anyway, here’s what I got up to before being told that I’d played around on it long enough and there was a movie that needed watching.  So the R30 and R31 will have to come at a later date.  Some might argue the R32 is getting long enough in the teeth too, perhaps not though.  Anyway… on with the show!

If you’ve not seen this Skyline Sport before and you’re interested in the history of the Skyline, I have an incomplete history already posted on here which for the moment covers the first 20 years from 1957 – 1977.  I’ve provided the links to these entries at the bottom of this post.  Alternatively you can use the “Search” function on the left, just type in “Skyline History”.
