Skyline of Nissan Jam 2016

A gallery of Nissan’s flagship model, covering generations from R31 to R34

It should come as no surprise the cars that drew the largest crowds at Nissan Jam 2016 were the Skyline. Event organizers clustered them together in one section of La Palma Park in Anaheim, Calif., and while there wasn’t a ton of them in attendance, people couldn’t help but be in awe of such rare machines. We even saw one kid on crutches hauling ass across the park just to be in the presence of the assembled Nissan flagships – that’s love for you, or at a very minimum lust.

Earlier in the week Michael Castillo’s 1971 Skyline 2000GT “Hakosuka” made the list of our favorite rides from Nissan Jam. While it indeed was an odd bird, it wasn’t the only exceptional Skyline; not too far from Castillo’s car sat an R32 four-door sedan that appeared to come all the way from Arizona to display. Probably the most distinct of the lot, though, was the R31 wagon at the International Vehicle Importers booth. The family hauler features a turbocharged RB20 and FR layout, and represents the last generation the Skyline model came in wagon form.

As you’ll see in our photo album, there were R32 and R33 in relative abundance, and someone even snuck an R35 in there too (although if we’re being picky, modern Godzilla is no longer considered a Skyline variant anymore). Feel free to flip through our visuals from Nissan Jam 2016, and be on the lookout for more from the event!

It’s true, the beloved Tokyo Auto Salon is just the latest big event to fall victim to the pandemic, organizers announcing last week that 2021 plans for a live gig were effectively scrapped. The show was only a few weeks out, so as you might imagine plans for practically every exhibitor were well in motion,
