Please tell me this is an Initial D reference. :D

The new wheels look great! I saw that C210 in Super Street and fell in love, it's cool that you guys know each other.

Wow, I was unaware there was a DR30 in Las Vegas. We should meet up. Next time I'm back in Vegas I'll PM you. Is this a recent purchase or did you recently move to Las Vegas?

Nahh I've been here since 91'. i traded my 66' mustang coupe for this about 2 yrs ago. He was stationed in Okinawa and brought this one home and never registered it,(because he messed up the FJ) so i was the one who broke off the JDM license plate seal after replacing the FJ with an SR. i guess i get to keep the sticker on the side.

Part 15: Hako and Japan snaps

My good friend John is the owner of the '77 C210 "Japan" Skyline in these pics. He was featured in the latest issue of JNC titled "Black Knight". How ironic we are both from Las Vegas (my article in volume 3 was titled "White Knight", I didn't notice until a year or so later :lol:) Anyway, when he finally got his car up and running we went out for a drive and took a few (albeit "very blurry" snaps)…It's not often you see these two together so I thought I'd post them…

This is it, why does a 40 year old car looks stunning like this and all new cars look stupid, not cool and all look the same?
