Here's my new car, paid 8500 for it which IMO is a good deal.

Paid $330 for a stateroads check on it before purchase and it came back with just minor problems (what you would expect from a 1992 model).

Loving it.. i'm sure some of you remember your first turbo.

3 things that bother me though.

1. Low.
2. Might rockup to an empty park where my car should be one day.
3. Get used to getting pulled over by cops.

I am babying it so hard :>

wow sick!

looks awesome dude. what mods are done to it? love the wheels. what ever you do learn to drive it at a skid pan or somthing before you try any street. I cant bare to see another nissan wrecked 4 parts.

also my 180 looks like a drift pig and i have only ever been pulled over by the cops when i was doing somthing wrong. Just behave and get an immobiliser and all will be sweet.

whats your plans for it? daily driver or drift or sprints, drags?

Sil80's are kinda gay tho, re-swap the front end with some other 180 guy and do the above then spend the rest of your days getting blowjobs from underage girls

Engine is SR20 redtop (106 thousand k's on it) (but who knows, compression test came up good).

FMIC / Pod filter / turbo timer / new clutch / bov / air+fuel n boost gauges.

No boost controller and always run standard boost (this is what i liked about it)

The plan for now is my daily.. dont have to drive that far each day to work (finally got a job close to home). When i get back from overseas i'll start pouring some cash into it.

Wont be driving silly in it at all.. i'm speeding less than i did in the daewoo. Definatley would hit up a skid pan first though. Loving boost.

Yer maxe that 180 is nice but not that into 'show cars'. I plan on keeping this car for as long as i can and only really care about how it feels / drives. Not so much looks.

Didnt have much choice about the colour but i like it and its growing on me..

Cheers for comments! :>

ps. anyone reccomend a good place to get an immobaliser?

pss. nice 180's fellas!

4 stud? looks like you have coilovers also. This friday i think is a friday night drift prack at Queensland raceway. You should come out and have a look at what goes on. $10 to get in the gate.

its $50 on the qr skid pan. + $10 to get in the gate and i think $50 for a year aasa licence or $20 for a day. its not cheep. you'll find on the skid pan you wont wear your tyres out. but on track in the dry you'll need $80 and spare sets of rubber.
