Those that check here frequently will notice the post before this one (by Orion) that shows an S21 Prince Skyline Super, on trademe.co.nz. It’s in worse, though more complete condition than mine. The interesting part however is that it’s the very same one that I was made aware of by Ed (RatDat) and subsequently made mention of in this entry here. I got the number of where it was but never got around to making contact. Now that it’s come up and the chap is after $12000NZD, I’m quite glad I didn’t get around to ringing the guy. A bit ridiculous if you ask me, especially if you take into consideration that there was a Prince Skyway (the wagon version) recently for sale on trademe, for less and in better condition. Ah well, it takes all types.
HOWEVER! If you’re interested in a Prince Skyline. Then that’s not the one you want. You want THIS one!
Not only is it in better condition. The registration is on hold and it was last in use in 2004 and! AND! It’s a quarter of the price @ only $3000! So it’s bound to be in far better condition just for the fact of being used and not left sitting somewhere. I had tried to get the money together myself but with everything finally coming together for the C110, it’s just not on the cards financially. My loss is your gain though!As you can see from the rest of these pictures, it’s got all the trim that mine is lacking as well as having the original steering wheel.
I know I’ll regret missing out on this car, I know it. It’s just bad timing and thems the breaks I guess. I’ll add it to the list of other cars that I’ve somewhat foolishly missed out on for one reason or another. Amusing though, that since I discovered and eventually bought my S21, three other examples have made their way into general public view in the time past since and yet previous to that, I’d never seen one in photo or in the metal in NZ and very few in photo in Japan.
If you’re interested in this blue Prince Skyline, it’s in Canterbury, New Zealand. Leave me a message and I’ll email you back to get you in touch with the seller.

P.S. Cheers to Blair for giving me the heads-up on this S21, mucho appreciado! I just wish I could return the favour by buying it!
