NS.COM's 'VETERANS' thread!

Recommended Posts

I guess im a veteran. I joined SAU in June 03 after purchasing an R30. I then bought an S13 of SAU and afterwards found NS (doh!).

 

I still have the same car. But hope to sell next year and get a euro.

i was around on this site a year or so before i signed up under this name, not 100% sure whether i had another account then. i didnt have a car then, just reading up on the cars as i was saving for a nissan import at the time, i wasnt 100% sure which one to go with.

 

i was around other forums early '04 maybe '03 researching cars etc, dunno if anyone remembers SVD before it closed down?

*scratches head*

How many of you 'veterans' actually had a car when they first signed up? and how many were still getting wedgies from the year 12's at lunchtime?!

And (serious question now) how many of the aforementioned have followed up with buying an import, and how heavily modified is it? This could be an interesting case study! lol. If only i had NS.com when i was 16 im sure my first purchase would have been significantly better!

I joined way back in April 2004. I would have been 15 at the time.

 

I was heaps keen on buying an S13 as my first car, and a couple of months after I got my Ps, in March 2006, I bought one off a member on here:

I had it for about 18 months, and I loved the car to bits. Unfortunately, I was forced (due to financial reasons) to sell it, after I put SO MUCH money into it. This is what it looked like when I sold it:

:( I still miss it now. After selling her, I went Euro for a brief period of time with a fairly worked E30 323i. Very fun car to drive, and quick/light, but just wasn't for me:

Whilst I had the E30, an absolutely mint 1988 Silvia Ks came up for sale in Japan. I imported it through Kristian (Iron Chef), and it truly was a minter - 1 owner, genuine 70,000km car:

Sadly, again I couldn't hang on to her, due to circumstances beyond my control, so I had to sell her. The car is actually for sale again now (on CarSales.com.au) from the guy who bought it off me, and I'd snap it up if I had the money.

 

However, once I sold the E30, I bought another project S13. She's a little worse for wear, but I'm doing everything DIY, and I don't need a daily anymore, since I got a job in the city. So I pretty much do work on it whenever I feel like it. You can read all about it, and see some pics, here:

brings back memories when i was working hard to get my P's and pay for petrol in the old 84 corolla LOL

 

I joined back at end of 02/begining 03 (diff acct)

 

 

1st car was a 88 Mazda 626,

now driving a phat 34.. which is in the garage (for the past year :()

 

 

Lessons learnt? DONT GET A FREEAKING LOAN, no matter how much.. you're worse off. Im nowhere near paying some of my loans off, however if i saved the money i'd earnt (even 1/3) i could have purchased 2x R35 GTRs... just puts me in my place knowing what i COULD have had.. so young guns, working at maccas or whatever, work hard, save it, OWN it, sell it, save it, buy it. (rpt) :)

 

 

god cars back then were...

 

more about the doof doof

c'mon R33_gtr cheer up!.... the CX-7 is totally like a sportscar, and the R34 gtr is definately a sports car........ sooo...... yea.... ummm... *looks awkward*

 

*pats shoulder and shakes head*

 

 

Just thinking back now i got my R33 from Prestige Motorsport, i think they were called? I paid like high $40s for that thing lol...

 

f**k i miss that car, drove better than the R34 and twice as quick.

 

The Mazda is just well yeah the typical soccer Mum car and honestly that's what she does every Sunday, takes the boys to soccer.

 

Atleast when they are older i will get to perve on the chicks they bring home, oh the joy. :)

Well, when I joined, I was 17 and just wanting to find out about Silvias.

 

Then joined the East weekly meets in Melbourne and met some awesome people.

 

I had this as my first car:
