In 2007 Nissan celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Nissan/Prince Skyline. Here a few pics I put together of that event and as a guide to the Skyline fan. Enjoy!

Just another balmy day in Yokohama, specifically at "Akarenga" or "Red Brick"; a.k.a. the old Yokohama Red Brick Warehouses, now turned into a shopping mall / event venue.

The weather was quite bad and rainy. In hindsight this was a huge photographic opportunity for me. The bad weather held back the onlookers and provided me with a unobstructed view for every model represented there. I only wish I was a better photographer, with a professional camera, and a better eye at the time.

This is not an all inclusive list, just one model shown for each generation series. So here's the best I could do:

Not included in this lineup is the rarest of the rare, the Prince Skyline Sport, coupe (under the cover to the left) and convertible.

Gen 1 and Gen 2 era. The Prince Skyline Sport, BLRA Series.

The owner informed me that these 2 are the only known in existence that run and are insured and registered! :shock:

More on this special visit later on in my thread: How my life found a '72 Nissan Skyline 2000GT HT
