Many thanks to our good friends at Super Street Magazine, for featuring the Hako in their March 2012 issue!
Image

Brad Lord put together a great story, and as always Alastair Ritchie's images are top notch.

It's so cool to see the Hako take its place among the awesome rides and eye candy in one of our favourite car mags. So go out and buy the March edition of Super Street now! :D

Does no recent updates simply mean that the Skyline is now a thing of perfection with no more problems ?

All I have too say is what took you so long too get too this point :lol:

Oh where, oh where can an update be
kev, we know you have parts for the box,
we know you can install them,
we know you have been messing with other cars,
so why don't install the parts so the first one goes away, you can prove the second and we just might stop bugging you until you get new parts.....



might

nah we wont stop asking, probably, so you got anything new to show us?

Mechanically, I probably haven't done anything to Hako for 6mths, ie basically when I bought the new car and started working on that, and at christmas the Luce was taken out of storage and recommissioned for the road again. Then in the same 6mth period, we had a newborn, and I got a new job :)

But I'm pretty much done on the german car now, and the Luce is humming away nicely as a daily, so I was planning to start playing with the Hako again in the next week or so.

Well the first step has been taken....after quite a few months of hibernation, the Hako has been promoted from being at the back of the garage, to the front, and has been given a well deserved wash :lol:
Image

There's a few things I need to get started on, so the updates should start in the next couple of days :) Feels good to be back behind the wheel again, after a few months away, all the L-power still comes as a bit of a shock, which is a good thing :)

Well...as a matter of fact...at 10pm last night I had the bonnet open, parts laid out on the bench, a spanner in my hand, and then thought...

"Nah, I might drive it to work tomorrow, I won't take it apart right now" :lol:

Thanks for the response mate (you didn't have to go to so much trouble :D)!

The whole Prince thing is something I find really quite fascinating. By the time the C10 came out, Prince was a defunct company, but the "Prince Skyline" brand had so much momentum, that Skyline fans kept the flame alive for ages. Even as recently as the early 80s, you could still spot Prince references on the Skyline race cars (PDC means Prince Dealers Club). And the Nissan Prince Tokyo dealership is still alive and well.
Image

But then the Zed car racers had their own thing, SCCN, which I think means Sports Car Club Nissan.
Image

I find it fascinating that there would be this fierce internal rivalry within Nissan itself, between its Skyline and Fairlady Z teams. And I'm sure that rivalry spilled over into a divide between the Skyline and the Zed race fans, too.
