Jaco

This model Skyline was certainly one of the most underrated

cars 30 years ago. Silky smooth,quiet and great tourers. Always

had power in reserve. With indestructable mechanicals.

If not for perceptions this would have became a true collectors item.

The older Skylines; despite never being sold in the USA, are popular enough that our Hunter wheel alignment machines have the specs for them built in.......RHD and all.

Thanks guys,

Yeas Johan, they are very underrated, it is such a nice car to drive and has nice power when needed.
Hennie van der Linde made magic with his GTX, by winning 57 races in a row!! How is that for reliability!
Here is a pic I dug up of Hennie's ex-car driven by Dick or Richard Sorensen at the 2011 David Piper, I know Dick owns the car

Jaco, that's always been my favorite 80's car.
Well done man, the car is in very good state.
I would buy it off you if you want to sell :mrgreen:

Very nice cars. In general I'm not fond of 80s cars, but the Skylines are an exception. 8)

Thanks for the comments.
The previous owner only used it for towing his caravan, so the car is bit lazy and crazy on fuel, plus the diff is making some noise at 80km/h and 100km/h
its being checked out this week so its me and my Escort again...

Congrats, I have been tempted to look at getting one of those, more so after a guy I know had a Hennie vd Linde Zee version, the sound that thing makes....
