So I think it's obvious, but in addition to being OCD about my car, I DO collect other things R33 GT-R. And the more unique and rare, the better. Hope to highlight some of the better ones here on the blog.
Anyway here is my latest... kind of. Yahoo Auctions here in Japan can be a treasure trove of interesting stuff, if you know how to look. So a few years ago, I stumbled upon and successfully bid on what seemed to be an official poster for the R33 GT-R - and more specifically, the poster that was issued by Nissan when the Kohki (Series 3) model came out. And "kind of" because I did nothing with it until just a few weeks ago.
Not having lived in Japan during that period (early 1997) I never saw how Nissan displayed the poster - I have to assume probably at dealerships - but I AM aware of this most awesome commercial:
The narration in summary states how we, in our country of Japan, should be proud to have the GT-R. In addition, I know some people have located this poster and displayed in their homes (although this guy had to fold it in half to get it home...). Plus this same moon image can be found on the back of some of the Mooks, and I always thought it would be too cool to have this as a poster.
I found that a speciality art store called Sekaido was located in the Lumine shopping complex at Yokohama Station, about a 5 minute walk from Nissan Global Headquarters and Gallery. So when I stopped by after work, luckily these guys were up to the challenge.
So I knew the poster was in good hands when I left it with him.
So in between virtual meetings I go out and begin unwrapping. One thing about Japan, people sure don't mess around with wrapping!
|Perfect! (But wow this is HEAVY!)|
