Altough looking like a lancia in its racing avatar with the intercooler and all its definately a Jap car ...I would say a DATSUN ..either a birdwood (due to the dual grill) or the 510 of 60-73.

ID 124: is
a 1/24th scale Fujimi kit of a 1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R [KPGC-10] coupe.


The acrylic liquid gloss finish and the dull plastic in the headlamps, gives away the game that it is not a real car, but a scale-model. (The photo-etched brass wipers had me confused for a moment!). And judging by the detailing, it is not 1:18 or 1:16 scale, but a 1:24 scale.

So I judged that it is a 1/24th scale Fujimi model car kit.

But excellent photography though.

The PGC-10 (P stood for Prince) was intended for racing. So every extra ballast was stripped. It was very lightweight inside. No heater, no stereo, no nothing!

The coupe-version of the GT-R (KPGC-10) was introduced in March 1971.
A shorter wheelbase, two door body and less weight made for better maneuverability.

The PGC-10 sedan and KPGC-10 coupe scored a total of 50 racing victories, in 2 years until its production was stopped in 1972.

Postscript: Do read my post #491 on "The glittering world of automobile miniature scale-models" in The Scale Model thread.

ahem Ram

This quiz is for Cars and not for model cars. That was a totally invalid question.

Stick to cars where the driver is in the car (and not pedal cars)

That plastic scale model is small enough to stand along the open palm of my hand.

ID125: is the retro-styled 1990-model E-PK10 Pao by Nissan.



It had a 987 cc 4-cyl. engine that put out 52 bhp@6000 rpm and 76 Newton-m of torque@3600 rpm.
The engine came with a 3-speed automatic or 5-speed manual gearbox.
Fuel economy was 18 km/litre in the city and 29 km/litre while leisurely cruising at 60 km/h. Turning circle was just barely over 14 ft.

It was available as a hatchback or soft-top convertible and in just 4 gray colors. Besides the Aqua gray and Ivory gray shown, there was an Olive gray and a Teracotta gray. The grays were achieved not by paint but by a fluorocarbon resin wax that achieved these colors in a life-long finish.

In the first quarter of 1989, there was a three-month wait for this car after booking.
