Earlier this week I found a bunch of pictures of the Nissan Bluebird 910 Super Silhouette racer:
These pictures are quite scarce as the Bluebird was the least favorable race car of the Nissan Group 5 racers: the Hasemi Skyline and Hoshino Silvia drew all attention away from this magnificent car!

Ebina Racing surprised us earlier this year with their Bluebird 910 Super Silhouette replica at the Tokyo Auto Salon but it is not as if they did such an amazing thing out of the blue. A few years ago they already did a similar thing with a Mazda Savanna SA22C Super Silhouette replica.
But they have a long and rich history of various cars they made all the way back to the late 80s. Take for instance this Skyline GT-S R31:
It may look horrible by todays standards, but back then their R31 GT-S looked stunning: flaked paint, victory pipes, hood fins, Hiro V1-R rims, chromed fender flares and Testarossa style gills on the side. Everything you needed on your Skyline in the late 80s!

This Bluebird 910 shows you how a few simple adjustments make a perfect shakotan car:
Deep dished rims, cut springs to get it as low as possible, attach a (small) oil cooler to the bumper, air horn and a heart shaped neon light where the grille used to be.

This project had been sitting on my harddisk at 80% completion for over a year now and earlier this week I discovered it again. I was so anxious to complete the project now that I just *had* to upload it to Youtube immediately!
The video is over a good four and a half minutes of (JDM) Nissan Bluebirds in all varieties. Most of the pictures I’ve collected in the past few years, but some of them I had to specifically search for in order to fit them into the video.
Anyway, enjoy my tribute to all kaido racer / shakotan / kyusha kai Bluebirds mixed together with good old fashioned disco by Boney M.: (more…)by banpei with
