If you don’t know, for shame.
A recent post on the JNC forums reminded me of this article I had in a magazine. I spent a while trying to find the magazine amongst the pile of them that I have, eventually coming to the conclusion that I left it with ANOTHER pile at my brother’s place. In the end, I found it and here it is for you to read. Interesting (I think) that it was mentioned in an Australian sports car magazine but then not really ever again, despite it’s success in Japan and the popularity of the previous GT-B in Australia.
During the blog downtime last week, I received a message in my inbox from a couple in Malaysia who had contacted me to show me their C110 Project, they had been given my email address by Ewan (hayatonka.com) whose contact details they had received by reading this entry “Want to buy from YAJ? Here’s How” many months ago, doing such they managed to attain a few parts through Ewan from Yahoo! Auctions Japan which they then have shipped to Singapore (where they work) before embarking on a coach ride back, with the items, to where they live in Ipoh (that’s a 6 hour journey). A 6 month process to date sees the short wheel base, 4cylinder car, looking fantastic;
So, seeing as the site seems to be working again (whether it did it on it’s own or Ed fixed it, I’m not sure) I might as well post about this little sucker that I bought off trademe.co.nz the other day.
The seller had originally bought it himself under the impression it was a Cortina GT badge, luckily for me, it was nothing to do with the blue oval.
Choice, little bits of Skyline history are always good. it’s likely I’ll never be able to get my hands on a whole S54 so I’ll make do with the badge.
You can read a little more about when this GT badge came about on the Skyline History entries I wrote, in particular. This one: Skyline History, Part 5.
