What it 'means' is a skyline, or the name Skyline.

What it reads is roughly SU.KA.EE.RA.EE.NNN, which is about the closest you can get the Japanese syllabary to approximate the word Skyline. The letters used are from one of three alphabet sets available, and this set is used mainly for transcribing foreign words into Japanese, but forever leaving them labelled as such, ie 'foreign'.

During the war such 'Katakana' words as カメラ 'ka.me.ra' camera were all forbidden and people were ordered to use the older and more 'classical' Japanese/Chinese Kanji characters, such as 写真機 'sha.shin.ki' or photographic machine.

Thanks Thrust for the writeup, didn't know about the forbidding of Katakanas in WWII:nervous: . . . . . I think that boyracers in japan have usually Katakana stickers, Drifters Hiragana-stickers and Yakuzas Kanji stickers with little 名字 in the middle:chuckle: :chuckle:
