    Hako FB group

    Ok, ive noticed that a lot of people ask questions and sometimes they are ignored, or no one knows the answer, or they are just forgotten about. Not sure what the reason, but I for one feel like i get a cold shoulder a LOT of times. i'm not some richie punk who was handed my car. Ive worked really hard for it, and I've done almost ALL of the wrenching on it (i can't weld, so i guess i technically have done all the WRENCHING..)
    I've asked a lot of questions, and Ive gotten very frustrated with the lack of participation from other members of this site. (No Offense to anyone on here, just speaking my mind.)
    To put a long story short, I really wanted to create a group where its easier to find information, and where there is a lot of quick interaction. If you are interested in joining the group, then follow the link below!

    This group is not intended to take away interest from this site, i LOVE this site, but its another way to spread the wealth of knowledge that each of us may have hidden away.

    Again, If i have offended anyone I sincerely apologize.
    If no one has interest, so be it.
    I'm starting a public collection of part numbers and technical data, i will also be uploading and sharing all the Hako picture's I've ripped from the internet.
    Please consider joining, and share what you know.

    We are all very lucky to own a true piece of J-tin History, and I think we should be very humble, and spread the wealth.
    ANYWAY, I want to extend my welcome to my Hakosuka owners club Facebook group.

    If you are offended by this post, then i'm sorry.

    Same with the C110's, that why I'm on www.classiczcars.com too, it's got a dedicated 240K/C110 section.

    I love this site too, but yeah info and participation isn't the best.

    We've also got a C110 group on Facebook if anyone else want's to join.

    haha chill out man. it's just kind of a dead site. and unlike most other sites, i notice if someone doesn't know the answer on here, they don't pretend they do. our "scene" is pretty damn small in the car world if you think about it. and especially if you narrow it down to one specific year and model car. at least you can find SOMETHING on your car. i have to piece what i can together off the barely existent HR30 info and use everyone else's L28 notes haha. i know how you feel :lol: ....requested to join both pages. i don't have a hako or kenmeri, but i do have a L28 powered skyline haha. figure we can swap info on that front at least ops:

    To me, this does not look good. No offence to Wookieballa (or indeed 47Hako) but I dont reckon we need any more factions on JNC.
    When the NSR first appeared I was a couple of weeks away from getting my GC10 Skyline and was a bit concerned about there being a seperate "area" for Skyline owners. I've been looking at JNC for 3 years and always liked the fact that people seemed to appreiciate everyone else's taste in cars, I came on looking at kev's Hako and then had my eyes opened to Japanese cars. I love my Hako but I'd take familycar's HR30 just as it is. Or a Bellett, GX71 Mark 2, etc...

    There now seem to be quite a few Skyline owners on here. Some people are very open and sharing, some people are more reserved. Some ask loads of questions and some have all the answers. Some just think they do.
    I have seen non-Skyline owners and potential Skyline owners "cut dead" by some owners on here, it seems a real shame. It's a little like qualified drivers having a go at learners out on the road, we were all there once.
    Unless you read Japanese, JNC is just about the best resource for pre-32 Skylines available. The long running threads like kev's and 31Gun's hold a wealth of knowledge and there are now a couple of C110's being documented in huge detail.

    We dont need seperate groups, we all have JNC. I'm already seeing people on here telling others how their car should be. I see people who ask a question and then if they dont get an answer within an hour, chuck all their toys out the pram. JNC is International, the person with your answer may be busy. Or asleep.

    I'm gonna stop now coz I've run out of things to say.
    Thanks for listening,
    Dan.

    I think your groups is good but it would lead more people away from this site than to it. The skylines are a nissan and a lot of nissans from the 70's are built about the same. So little tricks that you can do to a Z or 510 can sometimes work for a hako. I also dont us FB all that offen but come to this site like 8 times a day.

    Re: Hako FB group

    wookieballa, I agree to a certain extent... I myself being new to the world of restoration or even wrenching on an old vehicle. I find it hard to get info at the same time I do understand there's only a few of us here in the states. Most have been VERY helpful snag here and there but overall, I can say Skyline owners have helped me with every question I have had. I'm a a Rookie at best. For me to answer any questions is like a two year old knowing a few words...
    Awesome with the Facebook page. I will try to post as much as possible post as much info as I can get.
    Thanks
    Jose

    I like JNCs efforts with the GC110 and GC10. Problem is there are very few of these cars in the hands on ENGLISH speaking people. If language barrier prevents you from talking to owners of these cars or reading the multiple sources of information about these cars (40 years of Japanese magazines and books), then yes you are regulated to the scraps of information let on by english speaking owners. My car was sucessfully saved from the junkyard only because of my close Japanese family and friends.....However it is just an L6 powered Nissan/Datsun. There is nothing difficult about it. Sourcing the correct parts is the only hard part.

    There are several more GC10s who are not on this site whose cars have been in the US for at least a decade. The hako is for the car lover who cherishes his car and knows every nook and cranny
