Super Heroes: Nostalgic Hero's Top 50 Japanese Classics

Don’t know how we missed this one, but we were going through the forums the other day and discovered member pecx’s post about Nostalgic Hero‘s Best 50 nostalgic cars of all time.

It’s always risky ranking things in a formal order. This list is sure to have their detractors, but what’s a little good-natured rivalry amongst enthusiasts? In one of the most unexpected turnouts, the Nissan KPGC10 GT-R beat the world-renowned Toyota 2000GT to claim the coveted number one spot. It’s understandable, since the Skyline went on to spawn many generations of unbelievably superb machines lusted after the world over, while the 2000GT was a flash in the pan. On the other hand, the 2000GT was Japan’s first supercar, and exported to all corners of the globe to demonstrate that Japanese automobiles were a force to be reckoned with, paving the way for many lesser vehicles to come. Let the debate begin!
