    1980 C210 Nissan Skyline

    Hi guys, new to the scene. Just picked up a C210 Skyline from Japan, currently waiting for a boat to come to me in Vancouver Canada. Appreciate if anyone can point me in the direction of some useful info on this car like i say I'm very new to this stuff.

    It has L20T motor in it with about 140,000kms rest is what you see is what you get.

    Welcome to JNC. That's one of the cleanest 210's I've seen. You won't know how the floor pans are until you pull the carpet up unless someone did a thorough job investigating for you.

    I would love to own one these. Did you go through a specific company to make your purchase?? Where is the car from specifically in Japan and do you know it's history??

    Thanks, I was actually in the market for R32's then the old school skylines started catching my eye. I really wanted a C10 or a kenmeri but they were out of my budget.

    I will be getting a full write up with 100+ photos and video soon before it ships so I'll post that up when it comes.

    The car was from the Tokyo auction don't know too much abouts its history yet but everything was documented so I just went with it. Impulse purchase you can say lol

    That is a very good looking C210! But I have to admit I really want the black Celica in the row in front of it.

    Nice ride, I take it you will be the only one in Canada with one :mrgreen: :tu: Defiantly a better choice then a 32, they are a dime a dozen.

    Looking at the White DR30 parked next to it you can really notice very similar styling cues with the window profiles.

    In stock form I can see why they arent as popular as other skyline models , but done up right like this yours they are a very fine looking machine right up there with the Hako and Kenmeri.
