    Remember that GTi? (Red with Black arse end)

    Do tell? I'm intrigued! I drove this car back in 2001 and it's one of the main reasons I wanted to squeeze more power from the sr20

    One off Almera gti on pistonheads £3,250

    I'm saddened by this awful news. I'd always hoped Dave would recover as he vowed to learn to walk again so that he could one day drive his mint motor again. That was his motivation. For those that dont know who he was, as some of the other old skool boys have mentioned he was a huge part of...

    Engine Bay Thread

    Well no one showed interest in the Forge Tank so i've decided to keep it. I gave it to Swan Plating http://www.swanplating.co.uk and asked him to work his magic. I didnt really like the original alloy look and felt it clashed with my stainless, chrome and gold bits especially with the nasty seam...

    A safer bet would be chrome plating, when you consider the cost of sandblasting plus painting you're probably better off with paying slightly more for a shinier finish. Visit http://www.swan-plating.co.uk/ to contact for a quote as i'm unsure of todays prices but i know they're now happy to do...

    well not a newbie post but i'm well behind with whats new here!..

    You're right the scene changed dramatically sometime ago. Its one of the reasons i sold the Mera. Definitely the new scene is almost less is more, Euro and drifting has had a big influence but IMO its performance and subtle/smooth/simple styling thats in. Just so happened i hit the nail on the...
