In the aftermarket world, the Y32 is mainly used for a “VIP”, or similar, dressup/lowdown style platform. It can be Japan, United States, or Europe, and most people modify these to similar fashion. But some, like Kobayashi, do things the way they’ve dreamed with no short cuts. If there’s ever an argument in the VIP world, I think this is how it should be done. On that note, people tend to categorize certain cars too often without simply enjoying them.

Clean and smooth drifting; it always catches my eye! And that’s why I had to write about him and his 180sx!

Nothing like a well executed car. “Wheels and coilovers don’t make a build” but man do they sure make a car look good! I don’t think a car needs to be fully built or have every little thing exchanged for it to be nice, a car that you (the owner) enjoy, and to cherish.

It’s been a while. What better way to come back from a break with a crazy Mira? I’ve always liked the Mira. Fun cars with some pep, tons of aftermarket support, good gas mileage, and now legal to import into the U.S.! These cars haven’t been too popular among people in America but it’s probably because they don’t have that fire an R32 has. Similar to the R32, you can make these into pretty much whatever you want: Track car, parking lot show stopper, or just a nice commute A to B car. The Alto-Works version have higher H.P. than the standard versions and the motors are super stout; being super light weight also helps with handling! But this car isn’t for any crazy time attacks, it’s about style!

Naoki runs the YouTube channel “Low.stylejapan” (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd6oYhd_eZ7KKF4mx1LWr7Q). If you enjoy watching VIP/stance cars at meets, then it’s a fun channel to keep up with! He made that one video of the Y33 Cima snapping the tie-strap off the front…Not only that, he owns a very nice 18 Majesta! We will be running through it today.

Hmm, the A31, not as popular in the U.S. as I was hoping/suspecting it to be. If done right, these can be a very fun cars sharing components from other Nissan(s) cars. Similar to other cars of the era, you can build it to a lot of different styles and/or tastes. I’ve always enjoyed this body style and wish we received it in the U.S. Today, we will be looking over Yuto’s Cefiro. As most of the cars on this blog, he uses it mainly for drifting. I found him from knowing Ryosuke (https://exec-11.us/2017/02/21/2304/ This car is for sale) as they are friends. Continue reading “Yuto’s Nissan Cefiro”
Tomoyuki (Ralph) has owned this car for roughly 10 years. It was purchased as a completely stock base model A/T car. Over the years, it was converted to M/T, engine exchanged and overhauled, and aftermarket parts installed. Below we will go over the setup in detail in the Car Setup. He is usually seen drifting at events!
