in the time it took me to research 180s(when i wanted one) to being able to drive/buy one, they turned into a defect magent, so never bought one :P

i've owned an r31(smashed), a rather modified Datsun 1600(stroked L18), couple more r31 run around/trash cars, another datsun 1600 project i abandoned(sr20) keeping the first datto thru all of this and well into owning the stagea i still own now(used as a run around car, that datto is now in parts/sold etc)

off my p's in a year and i'll be onto something new.

Well I was around cars well before 05, more like 97 or something... can't remember. I remember when girls weren't that into cars, or if they were they kept fairly quiet about it.

 

ns meets back in 04 in melbourne used to have quite a few girls. only problem was everyone would assume it was your boyrfiends car and when they found out it belonged to a chick the first two questions were always "so non-turbo yeh?" and "so it's auto right?"... wait... that hasnt changed..

 

i still have the same car i bought 4 years ago.. bought it for $11k from an importer completely stock and in perfect condition. it nearly makes me cry to look at it now :(

 

i remember ns vic meets back when we used to pack out the car park every week and we actually used to go for cruises. and black 32's became all the rage. And who could forget the weekly discussions over whether s13's were in fact under the power to weight limit.

I remember the first 180 I saw with stretch around 3 years ago

 

Chameleon paint was the ducks nuts

 

The chrome ratio was way too high

I joined Jan 05.

 

At the time i was driving a seat cordoba gti (of which i have no photos). Somewhat similar to this, except green with different rims

barna_barna_068.JPG

 

and i had planned on upgrading to a 200sx. So i joined up to do some research and learn about these things.. before purchasing this:

 

side1xg0gq8.jpg

 

which was basically stock except for cooler, rims, exhaust and a couple other small bits and made about 140rwkw - which over time has developed into this:

 

frontpr1ey4.jpg

 

which still looks basically stock but has a few hidden goodies and makes somewhat more power :)

 

all i remember from when i first joined was 'D-Rail', 'Gangies', 'K ick the crate' and 250rwkw was enormous.

Just checking to see if i am cool enough for old skool

 

EDIT: Yep, I joined when i was in grade 11 as something to fill in IT classes.

 

I stated with a BMW 316i (gutless as hell) traded that and got a 84 Cruiser troopy which took me and 6 mates from Tassie to Surfers for new years 06-07 sold that once i got back (still wish i had it was a beast) didn't get an import til 2007 when i picked up my r33 from Bling Commanders place of employment.

 

Back when i joined chrome was the shizznit and i was busy trying to get a set of 20 inch bling rims for my Beemer.

 

And as you can see i lurk quite a bit

im old school, been comin here over 5 years. i was building my first 180 when i joined up, had already owned numerous cars including 98 s14, i drive a purple charade at the moment because i got dunno what i wanna buy next lol. When i join i lived at home with mum and had been dating a girl for about 2 years, now we are married and have our own home...... how time flies.

 

Since then have also owned 2 more 180's a 02 wrx and a 01 s15

 

p.s, i think mods should police this thread and any post from non old schoolers should be delted, we got warned not to post in the girls only thread. so fair is fair.

When i bouthgt my 180 in 2003, "the runs" were the sh!t in Campbelltown. People would meet in Ingleburn, then alternate between Airds Rd, Smeaton Grange, Appin Rd and the coal mine all night. They would stop long enough to get a few races in, then once the cops called it in on the radio, everybody would leave, and wave to the boys in blue as they passed us on their way there :lol:

 

Some nights there would be in excess of 200 cars there. Now people just get their kicks on crowded streets, yeah, i sure feel safer now!

 

Back then, Intercooler kits cost $1500, and anything more than a front mount, EBC and zaust was hard core.

hehe chappy

 

the runs were awesome back then

nothing like that anymore

 

what i remember when i joined here, 2003 i think

the site was pretty small and quiet

jap parts were bloody hard to obtain and when they were, they were expensive

when hybrid brought out front mounts for $880 (just the cooler), they sold like hot cakes because until then we only had

custom fabricated jobs for 2k or jap ones for even more

offset was almost unheard of (hell even i was a newbie at it)

a lot more bling than jdm back then

19" tyres were still expensive as hell

 

had an s15 back then, 2001-2005, now got an evo 9 :)

They only have time restrictions, not ppl restrictions, which kinda is discrimination, back soon with thread link

 

BTW, I personally don't care, and am only posting to be a smart arse, but others may take offense

Wouldn't really consider myself a 'veteran' but I don't consider most of the people that have posted in the this tread veterans either.

Had a VB SLE with a 308 & 4 sp man, then a 320i, now a JZX100.

I remember the good old days of:

Pigeon Threads

KayTeeCee

Driftek Craze

BN Kits

TFIF
