RM Monterey 2014 Preview – 1972 Nissan Skyline H/T 2000 GT-R Hakosuka

All I could think as I came across this 1972 Skyline GT-R in the 2014 RM Auctions Monterey preview was….

“Awww yeahhh!!”


It seems, dear friends, that our day has finally come!

Skyline GT-Rs in Monterey, rubbing shoulders with some of the most prestigious vehicles ever created.

As the boomer generation starts to finally take a back seat to guys under 65 years old, the auction world changes with them. It is a huge relief to see less emphasis on Packard’s and other brands we have never come across in our lives – in favor of car with modern-day relevance.

This does not mean the auction and concours world will all welcome the 1972 GT-R Hakosuka with open arms. Yet.

But soon, friends… soon!

Until then, snap up this pioneering KPGC-10 for yourself to covet and cherish in private..!

Hakosuka, a term of endearment, is a combination of ‘box’ and ‘skyline’ in Japanese.
