    Hey guys thought I'd share some pictures of my s12 I picked up this week


    Story behind it is the original owner had it dry stored since 1996 but during the floods early this year his garage started to flood so he put the car in a storage unit on a farm where my workshop is, by sheer chance a friend went in his unit to ask a favor and saw her in the corner, after having a chat with the owner he said he was happy to sell and we agreed a price


    The car itself is in great condition very original even has original nissan tool wrap amd wheel chucks in the boot
    It's a ca18et auto mk1 I believe its had the mk2 engine fitted at some point

    You cant modify that, its uber clean. Sell it and by an S13 and go crazy but dont fuck with that one man.

    BTW theres no difference between the two CA18ET's :)

    Agree with this or sell it on & make a few quid to fund the s13.

    Sell it. It's pretty amazingly immaculate, so some S12 bummer will have it for tidy money surely.
    They're awful cars anyhow from a tuning/performance point of view so aside from retro cool there's no reason to keep.

    Yeah, whatever you do dont actually drive it and make your own mind up about it, that would be ridiculous.
    I liked both of mine, something a bit different as a daily if thats what youre after :)

    After taking my 13 for a little drive at the weekend I've decided the 12 is going to be for sale
    Its too clean to be used as a daily

    How many miles are on it? If I were you Id be tempted to put it on Car and Classic for a ridiculously high price and see what happens, there cant be many in that condition left these days. :thumbs:

    Wouldn't hold your hopes up on there.

    Pennyless dreamers who'd love a retro car but haven't got 2 pennies to rub together in my experience.
