    I wouldn't. If that is the car I'm thinking about, it the story behind it is horrible. The owner contracted a 22 year old to modify the chassis to make a convertible R32GTR. He fell short. It ended up being cut in half, the owner went through some legal junk with the pseudo shop, car has changed hands several times. Its a great idea in theory, but its not a GTR by any means, and it was barely a s13 the last time I saw it. ...that was back in 2005 I believe.

      Sexy!

      I took that picture!


      Here is the owner's website: http://nekopunch.com/

      specific, those pictures http://www.northwestnissans.com/test...t/stage18.html

      Another picture of a car event I threw down in Seattle

      BTW, the 2nd car in the picture, that other white one, is Nikolay Konstantinov Formula D driver before he was 'famous'.

        some people like the simple look with a bit of a more aggressive fitment, what do you mean by amateur suspension just out of interest?

        yer i wasn't going to go out and find that exact car, was a simple comment in regards to the look of it, s13 verts are nice when looked after anyone can go buy a stock s13 vert slap some wheels and suspension on it i like it because its a little different, i don't know who is dumb enough to to cut up an s13 to fit r32 panels on it? last time i checked you can get frp conversion guards from japan they also do conversion guards for cefiros to fit all the skyline fronts...

              • EDIT: Those are triple projectors silly! ^

                Thinking about putting in a short air intake on my CA

                Using an intake pipe from a FWD KA24 Pintara, seems to be the perfect shape and has all the vaccume leads (or whatever) just my top radiator hose might get in the way. Going to turn my battery 90 deg so a pod can fit next to it, box it in and then enjoy the extra sound and whatever benefits it could possibly provide (if any)

                I'll post some stuff about it in my thread maybe tomorrow but for some reason though I may as well babble about it here and see if anyone has anything to say. My current intake has 3 90deg bends. :P

                              • As for my comments on stock 240's with strange camber issues slammed on the ground scraping everything they drive over.... Its not my place to tell you what you should like. I am sorry if I came off that way. I'm a function>flush type of guy and hate seeing kids destroy perfectly good Chassis because they are trying so hard to fit into a Genre. If you like it, thats ok.
