In my past article Zeroes to Skylines https://clubgrandtouring.wordpress.com/2020/01/06/zeroes-to-skylines-a-link-to-the-past/ the museum also has a section covering the origins of Nissan Prince Motors and the Skyline. Starting with Nakajima Aircraft. The great grandparent of the Skyline
Memorial wall tribute towards Shinichiro Sakurai of him in the field and of his creations.
The second director of the Museum after Sakurai-san, Naganori Ito.
Followed by signatures from signatures from his entire R32 development team for 1989.
Prince Homer, the humble beginnings of prince Motor Company.
Prince’s first race car, the R380. Based on a modified Brabham BT8 sportscar chassis. The engine technology from this car was transferred to the First Skyline GTR.
