WW Kick-off 2013: the ubiquitous Nissan Skylines

WW Kick-off 2013: the ubiquitous Nissan Skylines

I remember meetings where once a Nissan Skyline entered the place it immediately drew all attention because seeing one was so rare! Nowadays it is actually the opposite: nobody turns their heads anymore and “exotics” like a Silvia S15 tend to gather crowds of people.

It is actually a bit of a shame as this Skyline was rather interesting:

It looks like your average Skyline R33 GTST with a ridiculously oversized intercooler, but if you get closer…

…you will spot this interesting tuner badge:
Wangan Warriors: Nissan Skyline BNCR33 by Hasemi
Hasemi? The Hasemi?

I could not figure out whether it is genuine as the owner wasn’t around and the Hasemi bodykits for the R33 are very different from this kit.

Neither was I able to see if it were a genuine BNCR33 or the GTST you stumble over on every meeting…

Another surprise was this R34:
Wangan Warriors: Nissan Skyline ER34

Not only was it the only R34 and one of the few non-R33 Skylines, it also sported four doors:

So far I have seen one four door R32 and two four door R33s for sale so this ER34 is definitely an eye catcher! It must also have been attracting attention thanks to Nomuken popularizing the four door R34. 😉

Even more surprising was this Skyline GTST with two Spoon stickers on its front bumper:

As far as I know Spoon is exclusively doing stuff with Honda, so maybe a converted Honda driver?

Talking about Honda’s…How about a Honda CRX del Skyline:

I only realized it featured R33 tail lights until it was leaving the meeting site. I tried to make a couple of photos quickly but forgot to set the aperture, so it looks a bit blurry thanks to the f1.8 on a long distance. That’s what you get for doing manual focus photography…
