Just jokes.

Might be getting an old K myself as a second car to get around in.

Would love a 240K coupe, they're rarer than zeds, but i'm keeping my eye out for one.

Another granny - or in this case grandpa - driver! V-nice. I just happned to stumble upon it on the site :D ... Mine was the same, old lady, drove to church etc on a minimal basis. Not quite as straight as yours, however, man that paintwork looks mint! Youve obviously got a few options with it. Personally i believe it would be an excellent base for a modified build up. Nothing stupid, just tatseful period style - 15x9j wats, flares, front/rear spoiler and lowered suspension - excellent. As for the motor, a supercharged l28 would be nice and fitting but i wouldnt feel too bad about an rb25/26 et al if money/time were no object. Anyay hope to hear more about it and see some pics. Heres my beast and an example of a modified 4-door:

That is one very clean looking car.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

Thanks for the posts guys, light blue :D nice, yeah the paintwork is still very good on the side panels and bonnet and mostly everywhere else, but the paint on the roof and boot is rather cracked, going to get that sanded and resprayed soon enough. funny how the light plays tricks in the photo on the roof huh 8) looks just as shiny as the rest of the car. yeah going to get new exhaust for first upgrade, and then maybe lowered after that :)

DS, I'll move it into the Members Section, as long as you add some more detail (like you said) to the first post :wink:

Haha, sorry guys, some more digging up here! I forgot how damn nice the C110 sedan can look, and the attached/linked images from the other posters in this thread are insanely hot as well. Gotta say the good ol' Michael Boltons make a huge difference to the stance!

I'd like to know what happened as well. It looks like a really clean, original car.

And what is with all of this "Put and RB in it" rubbish? It may be a Skyline but this does not warrant a motor from a typical boy-racer car. All this will do is ruin the grandma-spec appeal and make him another "I want to go fast in grandad's car" person.

Keep it original. Do some tasteful and necessary mods like an exhaust, but don't go cutting this to fit this turbo or chopping that to fit that Jaguar V12. At the end of the day you will regret chopping up an original car.

Nice ride K man, please don't mess with it (RB blah blah), keep it stocky or chuck some twin SU's and keep it at least GT spec please. If your ever down in Adelaide with it lets catch up :)
