What’s more stirring, the sight of a crimson hakosuka in motion or the heartfelt love of a car nut for his dream machine? Two new Depth of Speed videos follow the same red KGC10 Nissan Skyline, first as JDM Legends wrings it out at Utah’s scenic Miller Motorsports Park, and then after it’s found a new owner who teaches transportation design at the prestigious Art Center College of Design.
On a side note, as one of the top automotive design schools in the world, Art Center students are largely responsible for what you see on the road. When someone who holds the hako in such high regard teaches those students, it can only mean good things.
Eric Bauer will be taking his Skyline to the Historic Japanese Car Gathering on July 1 and JNC will be there as well. Please come by and say hello if you’re in the Bay Area.
perfect way to start a friday… thanks..
…i want one in white -_-
can’t wait until 7/1 !
The owners enthusiasm for his car is very motivating! cheers again JNC.
If I owned one, I would never use the radio.
(Just me and the sound of that motor).
I think 1 thing he said right that such cars should be driven on every day baisis i got mine (mazda rx5/121) as a every day drive and i love it.
loved the videos. LOVE this thought: “On a side note, as one of the top automotive design schools in the world, Art Center students are largely responsible for what you see on the road. When someone who holds the hako in such high regard teaches those students, it can only mean good things.” i just bought a 1983 cressida wagon. it came with 147,000 miles on it. for a 29 year old car, that’s about 5000 miles a year (hardly driven, and well taken care of). in the 2 months that i’ve owned it, i’ve driven it about 2000 miles. couple days ago, i started feeling guilty about driving it so much (my daily driver to work). eric’s comment “…but i bought it to drive it. i bought it to enjoy it. i bought it so that it’s out there and people see it.” was very helpful to me. my cressida is nothing near his skyline, but it’s my little slice of joy each day. thanks for the article!
p.s.: i’ll try and visit on July 1! =)
