Hi guys,

I'm catching up on my reading about the Hako's etc. I read a recommendation of this book on gtr.co.uk.
The ISBN number Geibun Books No.609. ISBN 978-4-87465-917-5. I can't seem to find it anywhere, not even on amazon.jp.

Any help on where I can purchase it ( not being E-bay ). The closer to Europe the better :lol:

Took a quick look around and it looks like that it's out of print now. It's 5 years old so it's not very surprising since they always seem to have a new Skyline complete book every year.

The amazon.co.jp listing though does have a few used ones up for sale:

http://www.amazon.co.jp/C10%E5%9E%8B-%E ... 4874659179

Rakuten's website shows that they still have a new one at the original 2,000yen price as well:

http://books.rakuten.co.jp/rb/C10%E5%9E ... m#13054653?

Tsutaya's website also shows having one left in stock:

http://shop.tsutaya.co.jp/dir_result.ht ... _it_series

I actually have this book myself. If some people are interested, I wouldn't mind doing a translation of this book.

That would be awesome! How are you planning to publish it? Bits and pieces or really another book but in English?
Thank you for the links.

I have a copy of this book as well and it's well worth it...

Buy yourself a used copy!

Many people are really recommending me this. If I'm not mistaken the price for a used copy on Amazon is more expensive than the new ones on Tsutuya?
I'm not very experienced with buying on Japanese sites. I'll look into it with google translate :mrgreen: .

it's a great source because it really goes into the details of just what the trim differences were for the different models

so if you're really trying to get a car with all the right options for its trim level then this is the resource for you

if you just want cool pics for inspiration, get yourself any nostalgic hero mag with skylines in it

I have thousands of Hakosuka pictures but I'm really after getting to know the difference between models. I already have the ' Nissan GT-R Supercar - Born to race'-book which talks about the history a bit with good pictures but now I want to learn more at the Hako.

Can someone help me out with ordering it? I can't make much of the site. Even with a translator...

Thanks!

I bought my books from this place:

It was a while ago but you can have a look if they still have it. I bought these back then:

A friend of me in Japan contacted Rakuten to see if the book is still available. He told me they are currently 'searching' for the book.
My hopes are not high since the book is out of print. I will try and find another way to purchase it.

Pm is on the way Norcal :D

A quick update on the C10 book at Rakuten. They awnsered my Japanese friend telling him that they can't find the book thus it is no longer available.
So if any of you want to order it. Don't try Rakuten :wink:
