SEMA 2016: The ENEOS Booth Gives You a Great Skyline View

By -


You’ll see more than oils and lubricants if you go to the ENEOS booth at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. You’ll get an eyeful of this 1972 Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-X.

You can thank the modern GT-R for its presence. Back in February of 2008, Ginash George, the man behind the JDM Chicago online magazine, forum, and community, went to Nissan HQ in Japan to see the R35 GT-R in person. That sparked an interest in its predecessors…

..and led to a purchase. George turned to JDM Legends, a company that specializes in the importation and restoration of classic Japanese cars, to get him a 1972 Skyline 2000 GT-X. Given the limited supply of them, finding one was not easy. Fortunately, it wasn’t impossible. George got his car, but it required some work. Clearly, it got what it needed and what George wanted. Here are the specs on it, courtesy of ENEOS:
