Now to continue our classic Skyline love affair with a sampling of C110, or "Kenmeri" Skylines from the Speedhunters archive. The slightly newer Kenmeris might not have quite the iconic status of the Hakosuka, but they are no less sexy.
GT-R style flares work wonders on a four-door yonmeri – shot by Len at the 2010 New Year Meeting.
Just stunning really. Tsukuba Summer meeting 2008.
Same type of car, same grassy field, other side of the world. This one is SR20-powered. JCCS 2009.
For fans of cars like the Kenmeri, there's no better place than the New Year Meeting. Countless examples can be found here every year.
Simple and to the point. Tokyo Nostalgic Car Show 2008.
The factory Kenmeri raced cars never reached competition, but boy were they good looking. Shot by Dino at the most recent Nismo Festival.

I don't think my life has been the same since I eyed this machine on the shores of Tokyo Bay back in 2006.
And just in case you forgot what these cars looked like when they rolled off the showroom floor. This one was imported to the USA by RHD Japan in SoCal.
I do think the reason I've fallen in love with this chassis is because of the resemblance to the American muscle cars I grew up around.
Someone studies the Star Road Kenmeri project at TAS 2009.
Waiting for a buyer at East Car in Japan.
Just searching through the site archives for these photos, I'm truly appreciative of the opportunities I've had to see these wonderful cars up close. I'm sure the rest of the team feels the same.
One more view of the same car.
OK that does it for the Kenmeri highlights. Much more Skyline goodness to come…
