*Heavy breathing*

Was just a bit excited when I came across the listing for this HR31, currently for sale at a dealer in Japan...

..Not just bacause its a 1985-build; the first year of production for the 7th generation of Skyline..

...Or that its a GT Passage 'Twin Cam 24V Turbo'; near the highest spec in the model range in its day...

..Not just because it is absolutely stock, and in a condition that does nothing but give 100% support to its supposed 17,000km travelled..

 ...or that being a 'Twincam 24V Turbo', as it so proudly, and brilliantly, displays on the front on both doors; fitted with the Turbo, intercooled, twin-cam RB20DET - the first time the RB motors met the Skyline chassis...

...or because being a 'GT Passage' means its a true pillarless 'hardtop'; with those frameless doors opening to reveal an immaculate, maroon-velour, GT-spec interior...

 ..Or because of the clear console lid...
..the 5speed...

..or the adjustable suspension controls.

 
Oh, no.

 Its this.

Right. Here.



Hnngh..




The excellence. The awesomeness. For when you're cruising the highway in your Passage GT, arm resting on the clear-topped console; at your fingertips - the controls to the 5-Cassette stacker.
Simply the best.
