Hakosuka!

1971 Nissan Skyline 2000GTX

For the uninitiated,¬†hakosuka is Japanese slang for “Box Skyline,” to distinguish from later, curvier Skyline models. Creative, eh?

While this isn’t the sexy GT-R model–that would have the sonorous twin-cam S20 inline six, rather than this single-cam L20 six–this GTX model is still a beautiful sight on these shores. Keeping the L-series maintained might be a bit easier, as it is basically the same engine found in the Datsun 240Z.

Plus, a GT-R would likely be double the price.

We don’t love the “stanced” look–the stretched, too narrow tires on too-wide wheels, but otherwise, this is stunning.

It’s on eBay in Los Angeles for $89k or offer.1971 Nissan Skyline 2000GTX silver front quarter 1971 Nissan Skyline 2000GTX silver rear quarter
