C130 Laurel SGX

The Nissan Laurel was designed to fill the 'mid-size luxury saloon/coupe' slot in the marque's line-up; larger than a Bluebird, smaller than a Cedric, with styling cues shamelessly cribbed from Detroit.
This particular Laurel is a second-generation (C130) model, affectionately known as the Butaketsu ('pig's butt'). The hairy-chested SGX was available with a 2.8-litre straight-six, and this one is very much on-trend in Japanese modifying circles: clean and uncluttered, very low, and sitting on small-diameter, polished, deep-dish rims. And yes, the obligatory Tokyo subway ring is in there too.
