Hi guys. Since i've just bought myself a C130 hardtop coupe 1973model i thought we could make a thread with images for inspiration, technical info and pics/info of your car/project.

For some years i've been looking for a classic c110 skyline/240k around the world. I've found some, but most of them was with right hand drive. Since i'm living in Norway i would prefer a left hand drive car. This model is rather rare in northern Europe, so i desided to go for the next best thing, a C130 Laurel. For me it's like a Scandinavian Skyline.
I was lucky enough to come buy a car like this in Sweden that was in original, almost perfect condition. Never restored and without rust.

Here are some teasing pics of my car:

I also got a little bonus when buying this car: Image

Isn't this model attractive at all? I took a quick search and found no topic about this model.

Its a very attractive car,
but its a Japan only car (as far as Im aware) and not many of us actually live in Japan.

I think you did well to find it in Sweden! whats your plans for it?

Is that a G18 engine? Wow! Rare if it is. Laurel Hardtop Coupe C130 is also known as the Butaketsu (aka. Pig's @$$). I personally think it looks tougher and has cleaner lines than the C110 Kenmeri. Would love to own one. Seen a few over the years in Malaysia but not anymore. Hope these cars are alive somewhere waiting for me to own it.

It's a G20 engine for those who wondered.
I've just picked up the car in Sweden and drove it home to the West part of Norway (Bergen).
Had some minor problems with the headlights and thermostat. Otherwise just great!

A lot more pics will come. Stay tuned ;)

I guess the 69 and 70 Chevrolet Camaro inspired and influenced many car designers around the world!

I'm thinking of changing those wheels. I have a set of 7.5" 14" SSR star shark that i think would fit this car. I don't like the momo rims that is on now, but it works.
