Depth of Speed is Josh Clason's video series that cosses the country looking for cool automotive stories to tell. He found another one in Utah at JDM Legends. They let Clason take one of their vintage Skyline GT-R projects out on track for some sunset lens time, and the result is nothing less than you'd expect from Clason.

On a side note, while the current Nissan GT-R is totally awesome, we wish it had a bit more of this car's cool vibe. Follow the jump for the video.

      That thing sounds hellaciously good. It also oozes a kind of easy cool that the current GT-R, or most other cars really, can't muster.

      Never knew enough about Skylines to know this is where they came from. That is a seriously cool looking (and sounding) car!

      No helmet, bald head, shades, "tats"... import tuner car douchebag recipe right there. Lovely car though. Sounds wonderful and you can even trace the some of the styling cues to the current GTR.

        Yeah, I saw the guy driving on the track without the helmet and I "almost" thought the same thing. BUT !!! He was the only guy/ car out there, and I do NOT see why you have to slam him for having a shaved head and tattoo and call him a douchebag, way to stereotype!

          Stereotypes exist for a reason. He is certainly perpetuating one.

        I don't understand why you have a gripe with him? In your avatar you appear to have some big sideburns.....you must be a "douchebag!" How's that treat ya?

          Those sideburns actually connected to my mustache which was righteous but unfortunately, I only kept them long enough to snap that photo. Treats me wonderfully.

        The lack of helmet was just for the shot. If you look closely, the driver of the car is wearing a helmet in all the driving scenes. The exceptions being the close-up and when he exits the garage.

      I know it's just a 'side note' but really it's only the passage of time that's made this old Skyline cool. Nobody outside of Japan took these things seriously at the time, and although they were quite capable, being cool rarely has anything to do with a car's ability. But hey, thanks for the link ;-)

      If there's anything that needs a retro-redesign, it's the Nissan GT-R. The old skylines are gorgeous.
