Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My (soon To Be) Drift Pig — Ok, so the paints a little dodge, and it has a half finished onvia conversion. Its a CA18DE automatic. no big performance there really, but it does go well considering what its got. Major amount of potential. only reason i bought it was for an S13 front end for my 180sx. Got the car dirt cheap, so I was gonna do it up and flog it off, maybe make a bit of cash back, but now i've decided to keep it, do up the engine a bit, swap to a manual turbo, and im a total drift nut, so now i got a track car, woo! Total drift pig. looks are unimportant, im only going to crash it anyway

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: dirt cheap, and heaps of potential

Cons: i need to do it up before i can have much fun

Nissan Silvia — This is an amazing vehicle. The performance was definately one of the better cars I have been driven in. The acceleration was very fast even from a stop, and could stop on a dime, but what car cant with 4 wheel disc brakes and weighing under 3000 lbs. The handling was great, but that could probably be thanks to the coilovers and strut bars. The quality of the build was great, most of the parts were new, i only had one problem with it and that was the injectors needed to be replaced. The overall appearance was cool, but still needed work. Obviously the exterior needed to be painted, and the interior had to be pieced together, but was completely original and unique being RHD and everything. The gas mileage was above average, about 22 to 26MPG which i had no problems with, the only problem would be maintenance. Any parts on the car that needed to be replaced would cost a lot or be hard to find. The car was really fun to drive and completely unique. I would completely recommend everyone to have one of these

Pros: Unique, Power, Acceleration, RWD, good gas mileage, looks cool

Cons: no cup holders, cost of build

S13 Bliss — place your bets, whats going to blow first? turbo or gearbox. The body needs some loving, the tyres have gone off (though that does make roundabouts more fun), the brakes are what you would expect of a car pushing 20 years old ie: crap! but it is light (1100kg and thats before you start jenny craig), it's front engine/rear drive and isn't hampered by modern electrics.

Pros: fun, reasonably fast, easy to park, easy to modify and cheap

Cons: getting old, brakes to small
