Hi
I am currently in Japan on a short trip until the 15th,
two days ago I went to a Old Skyline workshop to have a look and it was great.

There was a kpgc10 s20 GTR Skyline in the flesh that had been lovingly restored and a yard full of cool cars.
The in side had a wide range of parts ranging from stickers to full reco s20 motors ready to go.

They gave me some cool stuff also,, a VHS on the s20 a magazine style catalog that will make you cry and a nice picture book full of there cars that they had restored.
Check it out

Awesome! I've ordered quite a few parts from them for Project Hako, but never been there in person.

Thats Awesome Kev you well not be disappointed from seeing the shop and meeting some of the guys in person.

Hearing a s20 start up and run following with some makes you nearly cry, as the sound is like [as a friend put it] a 100 virgins screaming on there first time. oh yes and it is Japanese girls in school uniforms lol

Did they EMS you the items?

Need anything from Japan lol? I might have room in my bag for a s20 full tune.

nice :)

one of my friends walked past Jenesis while she was in Japan, I was rather jealous. (she's a non-car person, so all she could tell me was that "they had some Skylines out front that looked like yours")

when I head over eventually my aim is to stop in at both Jenesis and R31House (and try not to max out my credit card) :lol:

Victory50 is a little weird in that you have to make an appointment first.

Victory 50 is in Tokyo.
Rubber Soul is in Osaka
500km or so between them guess it depends where you are traveling to.
