Wanted to make sure I said it before another day passes: Zakira, thank you for your discoveries and efforts in the search! :tu: :P Probably the most comprehensive info I've seen thus far- and the insight on 89 degree sounding like a character name has me wondering as well.

I asked a few other people to physically ask people in Japan, we'll see if they come up with anything. Maybe it really is such a vague thing no one knows for sure, but for it to even be this common makes me believe there's a single source.


Yeah, everything was a dead end, all the leads. Hope you have better luck asking in person.

Pretty sure it's a C130 Laurel sedan, but I'm not 100% either. I can't see the character lines in the side. Maybe C110 Skyline? I can't make out the surf line either though.

UGH. I can't tell.

@ Stationwagonguy. I think you may have to step away from this, you're seeing red stripes where there are none.
So it's a "knuckle line", which is a 90 degree angle between two planes (not that sort of plane) on a ship. It is also an "89 line" or similar, so is that a Japanese language play on 89 and 90 ?
If someone paints a red stripe on their car car and nobody sees it, is it there ?
Is a 4 door kenmeri called a yonmeri because a shimeri is a damp place ?
So confused.

I just want you to know I didn't ignore this as much as I didn't know how to respond. Every time you've posted in here, I've just busted out laughing. Thank you. :hug:

Thanks man, good to know I've put a smile on your face ! Obviously I'm using humour to appear clever while not actually being helpful.... :|

So. I decide to try and contribute a little more to your thread, Stationwagonguy.
I asked a Japanese friend who is part of a Nissan Facebook group to ask around.
So far I've ended up with an extreme line, A boso line (which includes runaway line, violent line and abysmal line) and also a thunder line. There was also some thing about Buddha's brother-in-law who defected with 500 disciples, but that really lost me ! In most cases all the contributors say that it's been that way from the olden days.
As people have already said on this thread, it seems possible that the origin has been lost in the past. Maybe it's a bit like dice hanging from the interior mirror of a custom or a rod, we all know when it's right or wrong but do we actually know when and why it started ?
I'll let you know when I've had a proper update from Japan. (about the line, not the dice).
Cheers, Dan.

Err, boy at the back with the creature on your shoulder. What's your name ? Vanderhorst, that's it. You can tell us about the dice but remember this is Japanese Automotive Culture, not Post War Hotrod History.

In the fifties, fuzzy dice were a common project in Home Economics classes across the US. Just like guys would give their class rings to their best girl when they were going steady, girls would knit fuzzy dice for their boyfriends. Ergo, displaying the fuzzy dice from your rearview mirror was a way of displaying a higher social standing in the high school hierarchy - you had a car, AND a girl.

Thanks ! Really had no idea (unless you just made it up). I'd heard it was something about dicing with death, but I'm not a local.... So what about the stripes then ? I've heard from Japan that a few people have said it's tribute to the red and white paintjob on Kunimitsu Takahashi's Hakosuka race car.

Stationwagonguy's back ! I thought they'd finally caught up with you. So you're going for a bit of 1/25th scale inspiration, eh ?
I dont suppose that the instructions say "Apply Bozo-line decal which incidently is derived from...."
Never mind.

Haha, there was unfortunately no description whatsoever to accompany that picture, shared from somewhere else before I'd found it. I imagine it's in the deluxe instructions somewhere.

I had considered the connection to the Hakosuka racer as well previously (and IIRC it's been mentioned before in here as well), but I don't know how you take that paint scheme and turn it into lines on the side? Not impossible obviously, but it seems like a stretch.
