Looking at some pictures I took last week, I figured an update on my old Nissan was overdue. Those new Type R’s make for great pictures.
I love spring, for one very good reason. It’s racecar season. To celebrate that fact, I woke my rough looking 1992 Nissan 180SX from hibernation. Here’s what happened since.
I have this sports car that I care about. Of course, the plan was to finish the project while my income was still basically disposable, then drive the car on my way to the next step in my life.

I keep rambling on about my project car, a 1992 Nissan 180SX that I bought from my brother. I previously wrote about the car’s rebuild, purchase, and my ownership of that masterpiece. I guess it’s time a take a good, long, hard, unforgiving look at all its rougher edges.

Rule #1 of project cars is as follows: “Never buy someone else’s project car”. (edit: transparency from the seller helps a lot)
