Hi Guys,

 

I think its about time i formerly introduced myself.

My first car was a s14a 97 model back in 03/04? been awhile, which i sold to Gruzdowskii from SilWA back in 06?

 

Got my hand on a s13 ca18det which the tyre fell off the wheel on the freeway...almost died... s13 spec for you there

 

Traded it in for Dom's 180sx painted by a blind vietnamese bloke with a paintbrush ca18det

 

Converted to s13.5 wide body rb25 with rb20 gb dropped off to be painted to never be seen again.... after many searches i found the shell on the forsale thread on SAU stripped ofcourse meh...
