The holy grail: Hakosuka

For me the holy grail of Japanese vintage performance cars has to be the Hakosuka skyline, the 1st generation of what would prove to be a very successful family.

The looks aren’t curvy or what you would consider very sporty in this day and age but the aggressive almost determined eye brow look of the front end, the long bonnet and sweeping rear lines down to the tail give the KGC10 such an iconic and powerful stance, this car is ready to do business. The Skyline family was destined for success as soon as the first one came off the production line, it cleaned up in Touring Car events throughout Japan and paved the way for the flagship Skylines you see today. Simply put this car is nothing short of awesome!!
