Here we have a cheesy 1982 promotional video for the R30 Skyline… it’s the BEST WAY to your heart!
Features appearances by the late greats Sakurai-san and Paul Newman, plus interesting footage of the design stage, clay models, and early test vehicles. The RS sneaks in towards the end as well.
I shouldn’t need to say much more than that – just take a look for yourself.
The music track is The Best Way To Your Heart, by Maxine Dixon, which played in the background of the original R30 television ads. Given the lyrics I wonder if Nissan commissioned this song especially? And ironically enough, the majority of the “cruising around” scenes were shot in the United States – one market where the car was never sold.
