The 1970s ‘Kenmeri’ Nissan Skyline holds a very dear place in my heart, nestled in between the first tree I ever had a crush on and the time [REDACTED] while the music played in the art studio. Here is one with a Mazda 13B rotary swap. Its sound brings me great joy.

What is particularly fun is how tiny the two-rotor engine is in the Skyline’s engine bay. The car is already pint-sized compared to most American coupes of the day (it looks like a Mopar in miniature), but it was designed for a long straight six anyway. The Mazda engine looks like an overcomplicated battery box.

Listen to the car idle around here:

And listen to it run through the revs here:

If you need me, I will be selling all of my worldly possessions for apex seals. Goodbye.
