Dean Pang: 1971 Nissan Skyline GT-R

Imported into Hawaii directly from Japan, Dean Pang purchased a first generation right hand drive 1971 Nissan Skyline Hakosuka GT-R for its rarity and uniqueness. Additionally, it's the first one in the state of Hawaii. Pang has since equipped the GT-R with triple Mikuni carburetors, Fujistubo custom stainless steel headers and exhaust, Techno Toy Tuning T3 suspension with Eibach springs, and of course his favorites - custom flares and a custom paint job. To complete his Hakosuka build, Pang has future plans to install a custom Air Lift or AirREX air suspension setup.
