    got the car from some dude called ste who changed the engine over in warrington but he had the turbo stolen and living so far away (wales) he didnt have time to get to the car regually were it was stored at his unties shop and she wanted it moving so he offered it me for £150 but i said i wasnt paying more than £50 for it a week or to later he messaged me sayin £50 and it was mine :D

    so £70 later (£50 for car £20 for trailer/petrol) i had a almost mint condition S13 :)

    Fuck me man! That is a perfect drift car! Cheap, as chips, which means no crying when that barrier hops out in your path when sideways!

    Dont do any fancy shit with it :no: Just get her up and running, mig spec diff, maybe some decent suspension, and then diff her up! Cheap drift fun imo :D ;)
