Wednesday Wall: JNC Project Hako KGC10 Skyline


Tired of the last Wednesday Wall yet? We don’t know how you could possibly be, but this might be the only car capable of out-cooling the Lexus LFA and Toyota 2000GT: JNC Project Hako.

Kev’s ’71 Nissan Skyline KGC10 terrorizes the tunnels of Sydney, but could be right at home circling the Shuto according to this shot. This wall comes courtesy of Mark Pakula, as our usual lensmen Dan and John refuse to set foot in Australia until Bartertown is freed.

Also, a bonus rear view as well.

    It seems like just yesterday I was jealously viewing pics of that GC10 up on a trailer being dropped off at Kev’s house. It’s come a long way since “GrandJDM.com”. This ordinary man and his passion have created something very special and in the process encouraged other ordinary men that they can do the same if they dedicate themselves. They would also need the patience of a saint, a platinum wife and plenty of disposable income. :)

    “They would also need the patience of a saint, a platinum wife and plenty of disposable income.”- of wich Kev has none! Nice pics, but tell me Kev, did the Hako move under it’s own power, or is that white stripe in the first pic a tow strap!=)

    I think it’s more fair to say that instead of “the patience of a saint, a platinum wife and plenty of disposable income.” I’ve actually got “…a patient wife (who is also a saint) and income of which plenty has been disposed” :)

    …I think we can all agree that all the tools in the garage amount to squat, and the most important thing in a project is an understanding spouse!

    But (and I’m sure I’m not spilling any photographer trade secrets here) the way these shots are done is that a long 10ft metal pole is suction cupped to the car, and at the end of the pole is a camera set to very long exposure. The car actually then rolls only at walking pace, while the camera takes the shot, and it was actually a challenge to get clear shots, since the Hako has a very rough idle which shook the pole while it was driven at low speed. The pole and suction cups are obviously in the picture, so they are digitally erased later in processing.

    Mark Pakula’s a professional photographer for one of Australia’s top car mags, and is an ace at taking this kind of technical shots, so I’m very pleased that he took the time to come over and take these awesome pics.

    Kev- Amen! (On the wife and the money part.)

    I didn’t know that’s how Photographers did it these days. I thought they still had someone hanging out the window of a pace car(at a safe speed of course.)

    BTW-I was just joking about the tow strap! Please don’t punish the good people of Bartertown for my sake!

    I’ve been real busy the past couple of weeks, so I’m just now getting caught up on the blog posts. I’ve seen these images before, but it’s great to have them as wallpapers. The photography is just as impressive as the car itself. Congrats to Kev and Mark.
