    These black and whites you have been posting have often been beautiful. I really liked seeing the B and Ws from Nissan racers in the 80s when the technology had long since been surpassed; it was an odd juxtaposition for me.

    The grainy image quality - it could be argued - enhances the photographs, or at least makes them interesting. I am used to seeing crystal clear images, and the fact that there is some roughness prebuilt into these film shots is kinda cool.

    I am not well versed in Nissan's history in sportscar racing, but you have piqued my interest. I will have to dig into this.

    Thanks for the bevy of shots!

    These cars remain, unlike Yatabe, which was destroyed in 2005.
