We had the pleasure of shooting Scott’s 1990 Nissan S13 this past weekend. Although he has owned the car for about four years, the first few years consisted of simply scavenging for parts and building the car in his spare time. From a stock single cam/5sp base model, it eventually transformed into the LS1 beast it is today. Considering the majority of the work (including paint) was completed by Scott in his own garage,  it’s pretty damn impressive he was able to accomplish the majority of the build in only two years.

What really sets this car apart from others are the Weds Kranze LXZ wheels. The fronts are a respectable 18×9.5 -10 offset, and rears a ridiculous 18×10.5 -26 offset. Not many cars can pull off the hyper chrome finish of the Weds, but this Nissan pulls if off seamlessly.

Scott has only been driving the car for 2 years now, but is fairly pleased with it’s performance and aesthetics. As a drift car, there are always various nuances and what not that needs to be tweaked. After the last drift event, Scott felt really good about the car and doesn’t think it needs much more work. With the majority of the build complete (see extensive mod list below), future plans for the car include some minor items such as a matching bucket passenger seat, a speedometer, and maybe even a working radio. Be sure to check out this dope S13 at the next drift event, getting rowdy in the city, or simply being the presence that it is at the next meet.
