Giulio’s verdict: Yet another Skyline coupe added to our collection. This one belongs to a friend of the previous Skyline we featured last week with the LibertyWalk kit on it. The old and the new side by side with quite different looks. I think this caught my attention because of how it was put together. As you can see, if you read about this car, he has certain parts of the body altered through the form of “smoothing”, using parts from other car makes and models plus putting together “one-off” parts such as the suspension and exhaust system. Unique in different ways is what Yamamoto-san has done with his build and that is all good in my book. Personally I’m not so keen on the design of the headlights on this shape and all round, I would have to say I prefer the shape after this model but I respect what he’s done to this.
