You know what, i've just realised when i signed up i bought the history of gtr book and haven't even looked at it. I think i'll give it a good thumbing over the weekend
The car in your photo is a 'KGC10' Skyline GT or GT-X model that is pretending to be a 'KPGC10' Skyline GT-R.Wow. What is the model name?
Thank you.The car in your photo is a 'KGC10' Skyline GT or GT-X model that is pretending to be a 'KPGC10' Skyline GT-R.
There are just three C10-series Skylines in the UK at this point: One 'GC10' Skyline GT ( 4-door ), one 'KGC10' Skyline GT 2-door Hard Top ( not roadworthy ), and one 'KPGC10' Skyline GT-R which is prepped as a period race car.
If you search for the terms 'KPGC10' and 'Hakosuka' ( literally 'Box-Sky[line]' ) you will find that these models have been discussed on this forum several times in the past.
You might want to re-phrase that. A proper fake is of course something that is being passed of as the real thing in a deliberate effort to defraud. In the case of C10 and C110-series GTRs, fakes do exist, and of course nobody would want to be on the receiving end of such deception. I would say that these - by their very nature - are relatively rare in Japan. There's usually something that the faker has forgotten, too....If it's a real GTR then it's expensive, most of them are fake though.
LOL I know they weren't really glued, it was a comment as to how it looks rather than the structural integrity. I assume it was for superior cooling, but either way still don't like it!I think you'll find it's bolted on, rather than "glued".
That car is of course copying the location of the oil coolers on the works PGC10 and KPGC10 race cars. Do you know why they located them in that way?
