    C210 skyline coupe supercharged

    haha, nah just kidding (not yet anyway)

    Hi, I'm Dan and this is my Datto

    I was given the car to use as a paddock basher by my cousin who had it sitting in his father in-laws paddock for a couple of years, didn't know much about them at the time so I grabbed it off him and towed it home.

    Got it started easy enough but the clutch had seized and it had no brakes, so a new clutch/slave cylinder went in, fixed the brakes and all was good (all tho a little rough around the edges)

    So I started searching the net for parts and info while the Datto was airing out (dead rat behind the dash) only to find out that it was becoming a sort after model among Skyline enthusiasts. 5spd manual, black unmolested interior, 2 doors, minimal rust.

    Cheers Dan

    I don't care what anyone says! Skyline Japan is my fave right after Ken-Mary! Especially the sedans!

    Lovely C210! Welcome to JNC! Any plans for her? Like maybe shipping it to my house? :wink:

    Wow good find. Time to get some round tail lights!

    The sedan version, called the 180K over here, were used as taxis. Surviving examples are not much loved by olskoolers..

    It was a pretty good find, but finding parts for it is a pain in the @$$. I wouldn't mind a set of those round stove top tail lights but so pricey for what they are.

    After I gave it a good once over and clean up i started fixing the small amount of rust with new steel, that's turned into a full respray. I'm organising a painter at the moment to finish it off for me.

    This is what colour it's going to be

    The round lights with chrome panel are expensive, the other type with painted panels (a bit different in design) are much cheaper. What's the going rate over there?
