Page 1 - IntroPage 2 - Mod list and future plans. Okay, with my other Kouki 180sx style S13 build in full force, I was in dire need of a daily driver.I ... Show morewasn't comfortable daily driving a car with over $20,000 in parts alone and leaving it parked in unsecure locations.So, instead of getting a crazy expensive alarm, lowjack, and doing some crazy security things to it, I did the next best thing...Bought a new daily driver.Cheaper, more economical, and gets better gas mileage than any previous car I've ever owned. I'm not going to argue with 400 miles to the tank.I was fairly set on purchasing a 2002 Infinity G20 because of comfortability, but after finding this little doozie, I could NOT pass this up.1990 S13 SE, Original owner, 61,000 original miles.Yes, my low mileage S13 craze got the best of me.I'm very keen on cleanliness. So, don't expect this S13 to be some hacked to death 240 just like 95% of them out there. Nothing but quality parts are going into this car.Since purchasing it, I've lowered it on JIC FLT-A2's, threw on 180sx wheels, installed mud flaps, JDM half clear/half amber signals, JDM H4 glass headlight housings, amongst a few other minor things.This look will not last long.After my other S13 is out of the shop from paint, this one is going in for paint/body work as well.I have a full Kouki 180sx OEM aero kit sitting in the garage awaiting install. Yes, that means front bumper with all lights/bracketry, extensions, RARE LIP, sideskirts, rear valances, trunk spoiler, and 180sx taillights with the RPS13 carbon piece. New RARE JDM Kouki S14 seats will be going in tomorrow. New wheels will be in order as soon as the car starts coming together at the shop from paint. So, this will be one insanely clean Kouki 180sx for me to daily drive.I won't bore you any longer with my talk.Here's some before/after shots from when I first got it to the way she sits today.

Welcome to my Cardomain!
Just a quick update, my car was totaled on May 9th, 2007. A Taxi Cab ran a red light going about 50mph, and t-boned be at an intersection. I've moved onto my next project. A 41k Original miles '92 S13. I'd like to thank everybody for their support. I walked away from my accident because obviously, it wasn't my time to go yet. Hopefully, it won't be any time soon.
I bought this car in May 2006 completely stock for $2500 with 132k miles. Runs like a champ and has never failed me. I bought this car when I was 17yrs old, no license, no insurance, and no permit. I didn't even get to drive it home when I bought it! I ended up getting my license one week after my 18th birthday which was in November. So, this car sat for 6 months. Hell, i've only put 3,000 miles on her since I bought it!
She's still a work in progress. So, no worries. She'll be slammed, swapped, and rockin' 17x8's or 17x9's in no time.

I bought my chuki front bumper months ago with the intention of taking it to a shop and have them spray it. I decided that it would cost a little bit too muc... Show moreh for the front bumper alone(i'm gonna paint my entire car by november). So, I bought a couple of cans of paint and did it myself.
Enjoy. Show Less
