This 230 is by far the widest Cedric ever! Just look at how wide the bodywork has been extended!

It was a close one this week! The Skyline C110 won with only 4% difference!

This week we have another 4 door Nissan Skyline C110:
Nissan Skyline C110 #2
The Skyline had an headlight swap, Hart Racing rims which disappear behind the rear fender and the mid round tail lights have been removed.
Nissan Cedric C230 #1
This Cedric C230 was driven by Daijiro Inada in the famous godfather horn video. It has an headlight swap, wide fenders, big v-shaped exhaust, Skyline C110 taillights and some beautifully styled lip and spoiler!
Personally I don’t think it will be a tough choice this week… 😛
This week we feature the Nissan Cedric (and Gloria) 230. In contrary of the Cedric/Gloria 330 it is a rare bosozoku car and we had a very hard time to find more than one picture!
Some time ago we featured a video of it already:
This full version shows everything about this great Cedric: it is spacious, it looks bad, got a great horn and this hardtop version doesn’t have a B pilar!
We even managed to find a picture of this beauty:

You see, it even got the stance right!
Compared to that this kyusha styled Cedric suddenly doesn’t look that stunning anymore:

The Cedric and Gloria 230 did share the same floorpan and body, but in contrary of the 330 they did not share the same face: they still had their individual front ends. Only starting with the 330 Nissan finally merged the two cars fully!
Both cars were featuring several L series inline 4 and inline 6 engines, so the L20, L24 and L26 were all available.
The Nissan Cedric/Gloria 230 is a rare sight at the bosozoku meetings and we do have an idea why. First reason:
Many 70s and 80s Japanese police series used/abused the Nissan Cedrics and Glorias to make spectacular car chases. It was not uncommon to wreck up to 15 or 20 cars per chase! And the biggest problem was that the Cedric and Gloria were mostly used as policecars, so they were wrecked in masses!
Second reason: the image of a policecar is not really appealing to a bosozoku!
And the third reason: rust! There are not many Cedrics and Glorias left.
Personally I do prefer the Cedric/Gloria 330 over the 230 and that’s probably just like every bosozoku boss would!by banpei with no comments yet
