I’ve seen a lot of confusion and incorrectly captioned posts on here recently relating to the Tomica-Nissan Skyline racing cars from the 80s, of which there were two distinct different types, but, confusingly, with almost identical liveries. So, having done some research, here’s a full clarification of the differences between the two cars:
This particular car is not, as it is often mistaken for, the ‘Super Sihouette’ series car. This particular model was prepared to FIA Group C regulations for the 1982 Kyalami 9 Hours, and driven by Hobbs and Hasemi. It raced a few times in 1983 but never acheived much success, and not much evidence of it exists (hence its easy confusion with the more famous later Gr.5 car). It can be identified by its faired-in headlights, full-width rear wing and lower and wider body with heavily sculpted bonnet/hood.
Group 5 ‘Super Silhouette’
The Super Silhouette R30 was introduced after the Group C model, to compete under FIA Group 5 ‘Special Production Car’ regulations, and is more like a touring car, whereas the Group C version is more like a homologation special sports prototype. Although these regulations were being phased out at the time in favour of the short-lived Group B, they remained in use in Japan for a few years after 1982. Gr.5 cars can be identified by their less dramatically wide front ends, higher-mounted single lens headlights incorporating air intakes, half-width rear wing and ‘4VALVE DOHC RS-TURBO’ in large gold letters across the front bumper. This car went on to some success, and along with other Super Silhouette cars helped to inspire the late 80s ‘Bosozoku’ look with its long front airdam and tall spoiler.

Anonymous asked: I don`t mean to be an asshole or anything, but I just wanted to mention that the Saab 9000 you reblogged is post 1990...
‘The Saab 9000 is a large executive car that was produced by the Swedish company Saab from 1984 to 1997.’
If its production run began in the 80s, it’s an 80s car. And besides, you only need scroll back through this blog a bit to tell it’s hardly a strict rule. This is a blog, not an exam.

although i piss around on here, at the end of the day i don’t actually mind what you do with your car - it’s your car and as long as i don’t have to drive it i’m cool. someone may hate my car too. and that’s fine. the most important thing is that the car scene survives and people keep enjoying what they do.

I don’t expect you to post this at all but i thought it was relevant - seen last week on my facebook feed.
i feel a bit sick but thank you for your submission which illustrates my point well
mojocoggo asked: but don't you know that if you ain't rubbin' you ain't dubbin?
i would like to back up what i just said by saying that i think those passats with the massive bentley wheels on them and with so little ground clearance they couldn’t pass over an expansion joint are utterly moronic

nyomomneki asked: seriously, what's the deal with the honda-hate.
omg there isn’t actually any honda-hate, seriously. i just enjoy being cheeky about the car scenes. one of my best ever drives was in a honda, there’s nothing wrong with hondas, it’s just that like all car scenes (including, i will happily admit, my own volkswagen one) some of the trends and the narrow-mindedness of its participants can be funny, that’s all.
i post enough hondas, after all. i guess i’m just not into that generic eg/ek hatch with 15” racing hart wheels ‘jdm’ thing, but it’s really nothing personal.
