Enjoy this over 20 minute documentary from the early 80s on the legendary Skyline!
It includes the Skyline RS Turbo Super Silhouette racer and the historical races of the legendary Skyline S54 attempting to win the GT-II class, the R390 and several races with the hakosuka Skyline. (more…)
Amazing what you can do with a Kenmeri Skyline, Hakosuka Skyline, Fairlady Z, some photoshop skills and fooling around with different JDM styles:
I especially love the Grand Champ Hello Bosozoku style! 😉

Not a very recent meeting, but nevertheless a very special meeting: this video was shot in 1986 (Showa 61) and gives a good insight in the taste they had back in the 80s!
You can mostly see old Laurels C130, Skyline C10s and C110s, Fairlady 240Zs and occasionally a bit more modern zokusha like the RX7 SA22. 🙂
In this second video the crowd gets a small visit by the police:
And in the final part involves a lot of window sitting and flag waving:
