As you can imagine with a blog as ropey as this one, an Elven workforce held together with Pritt Stick, and our penchant for your Mom, we very much like objects of a slightly aesthetically-challenged nature here at TLCB. This is one such object, an absolutely brilliant Nissan 180SX drift pig by VovaRychkov. What the Nissan lacks in sleek looks we’re sure it more than makes up for in smokey sidewaysyness, and we know which we’d rather have. There’s more to see at Vova’s photostream and you can check out all the images by clicking here.
This neat modified Nissan 180SX was discovered by one of our Elves on Flickr. It’s the work of VovaRychkov and it reminds us of a time when Nissan’s European line-up wasn’t entirely made of crossovers. There’s more to see of Vova’s classic ’90s Nissan at his photostream – click the link above to make the jump.
Nissan’s current line-up is about as interesting as Kim Kardashian’s Twitter feed. But like said Twitter feed, it’s also very successful, with the Juke and Qashqai regularly entering into the top 10 best selling vehicles list in TLCB’s home nation. There was a time though when Nissan, whilst less successful financially, made cars that were far more interesting…
This is one such vehicle, the 180SX from the early 1990s. The SX has become a sought-after prize in tuning circles, and it’s a car that – thanks to the interchangeability of early ’90s Japanese parts – can be made to mix various bits of different ’90s Nissans rather well. This particular example is a ‘Sileighty’, which adds the front-end of a Silvia S13 with the rest of a 180SX. It’s also been fattened-up a bit by aftermarket tuners Rocket Bunny, and fitted with a hoofing great turbo.
Davanchi M is the builder behind it, and he’s done a brilliant job recreating the modified Nissan mix. There’s lots more to see, including an interior as good as the outside, at both MOCpages and Flickr – click the links to make the jump.
