well, for starters... we're in the 11th generation of skylines right now with the v35... yes, that's right... 11th gen... most ppl think the skyline started with the R30 (and some even think the 1st skyline was an R32 :shock: )... not true. the first skyline was produced in 1955, powered by a 1.5L 4 cylinder... this first car was known as the Prince Skyline ALSI-1...

check out this site and read up on skylines.. http://history.jbskyline.net/ ... there is a lot of history to them.


i'm downloading the vid right now

read up, it's great info to know... make sure you read up on the first GT-R, built back in the late 60s... if there's one thing i'm big on, it's automotive history... especially hondas... ask me anything about honda history and i'll either tell u or find out... it's an amazing story, imho... especially how our cars (the civic) came about...

that's easy, 1959.. that's when honda motor company opened up shop in LA. their first product was an electric "booster" for bicycles.

lol don't just ask me. ask everyone :) that way everyone can benefit... i'm just a honda history buff.... i used to host honda trivia nights on aim, where'd i'd come up with... well... honda trivia questions for ppl to answer.


example: what was the first production car in the world to have four wheel steering? (yes, it's a honda)



answer: 1985 prelude

good point ill just write a thread if i got one then. and i have no idea the anser to that question.

i would have never guess an 85 lude

anfrey
08-29-2005, 11:19 AM

not many ppl would even guess it'd be a honda :P but it being honda trivia kinda gives that away..

ok, here's an easy one: what's the first production vehicle in the world to obtain FULL SAFETY RATINGS? that is, a perfect score... and yes, it's a honda.






answer: 2000 accord

never would have though that either. specially that late in the game. 2000 accord

08-29-2005, 11:36 AM
i'm thinking maybe i should come up with a whole set of questions (at least 100) and we should have a honda trivia night again... but anyway, let's get back to skylines...

i was really happy when nissan decided to release the skyline in the US... it's a pleasure seeing v35 skylines cruising around town. and to anyone who says the g35 is not a skyline... IT IS. it doens't have to be a GT-R to be a skyline. in fact, most skylines are NOT gt-r trim.

bmyers4321
08-29-2005, 11:37 AM
lol ya that be cool that have a trivia night. either that or post all the question on here and make it like a test and see who knows the most.

and it is nice to see what the new skyline looks like. the g35 is a very sexy car. but i actaully prefer the 350Z over it.

it's a good idea, but last time i tried it everyone got stuck on one question and i had to answer it myself.... and when i posted the next question, nobody could answer. it was an easy one too, regarding the 1924 curtiss special, the first "car" that soichiro honda built. basically a mitchell chassis with a curtiss engine (it was an airplane/helicopter engine)... here is a photo i snatched from TOV

dang that thing is sweet think im gonna go steel it. j/k but that would get a cool car to have. you should still do a test except this time post all the questions at once then have people fill it out

if i did that, people would cheat. the point of trivia is to be the fastest one to produce an answer.... just like in a 'knowledge bowl' competition

bmyers4321
08-29-2005, 11:49 AM
ya that is true. you should just set a time limit for everyone to give you the right answer then.

anfrey
08-29-2005, 11:51 AM
it's gotta be done in real time thru an instant messenger... else the thread dies. i've tried so hard to get a good trivia going on here.. and most of the time ppl lose interest because they don't know the answer.... but then again, a lot of my questions are honda history... not the typical tech info we bounce around here.

i think i'll try to whip up at least 50 questions pertaining to the civic... again, most of these are gonna be historical... since most of us already know specs from 4gen to 7gen...



here is the most basic civic question, that even people on this site have problems answering: what technology developed by honda is the CIVIC named after?










answer: CVCC - Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion
