We knew local videographer extraordinaire Josh Clason was up to something when he tweeted a picture of a classic Skyline. It is also a pretty safe bet that when there is a classic Skyline, JDM Legends is involved. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
This latest JDM Legends creation began life way back in 1970 as a Skyline 2000 GT. Once the JDM maestros got it across the pond and into their magic-making shops, it was transformed into a lusty GTR. That transformation wasn’t easy, requiring extensive engine, drive train, exterior and interior restoration and upgrades.
Josh was invited by Eric and Ryan of JDM Legends to document the project’s final shakedown before the customer took delivery. Josh artfully captures the reborn GTR as it screams around Miller Motorsports Park. He had this to say about the experience:
“…the sound of this car is worthy of its looks and is a sound I won’t soon forget.”
He’s right. The sound this car makes literally caused us all to have a “crisis”. We can’t stop watching it! We need to stop though, because we’re running out of clean undewears!
