DOTS: Nissan 200SX S14a in Passau

August 20, 2012 in down on the street

I’m finally back from my holiday in Hungary, so posts will be more regular than in the past three weeks! 😉

Bad news is that Hungary is noticeably having less old cars on the road (and obviously old J-tin), but the good news is that during my way to Hungary I encountered this nice Nissan 200SX S14a while driving to the hotel:

It had been parked next to a Suzuki motorcycle dealership and lucky enough the next morning it was still there and I took two quick snapshots.

The S14a has been lowered a little bit, has a bigger intercooler and put on a set of (currently) popular BBS alloys: Read the rest of this entry →

DOTS: Nissan 200SX S14 in fall (the end?)

October 14, 2010 in dots

Down on the street on Thursday? Why?
Because it is a sad day for the Nissan 200SX S14 rustoseum:
Nissan 200SX pushing the daisies
Nissan 200SX pushing the daisies

The 200SX passed on! This car is no more! He has ceased to be! The S14 expired and gone to meet his maker! He is a stiff! Bereft of life, he rests in peace! He be pushing up the daisies! HIs metabolic processes are now history! He is off the twig! He’s kicked the bucket, He’s shuffled off ‘is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-CAR!!
* sorry for misuse of the dead parrot sketch *

When I returned to take beautiful fall pictures of the S14 yesterday it had vanished. As you can see the dead leafs even cover the spot where it once stood:
Nothing but dead leafs
Nothing but dead leafs

I checked the RDW (Dutch license plate registration) to see if it was now re-registered by someone else, but its entry has been removed from there meaning it is no longer a valid registration. That can either mean it has been sold off to some foreigner or has ended up at some junkyard. I fear for the latter…

DOTS: Nissan 200SX S14 in fall (part II)

October 10, 2010 in dots

Last week I realized I haven’t posted about the Nissan 200SX S14 rustoseum since the end of March. Would it still be there?
Yes it is still there:

It is only the beginning of fall, so not many leafs are on it yet…

But the low sun gives a great opportunity to shoot pictures like this:

A bit dark and gloomy looking S14! 😉

Summer didn’t do the car much good either, just take a look at this:

It is not only birdcrap that is on there, there is also mold on the steeringwheel. You will have to focus on the top of the steeringwheel to actually see it… I’ll take my manual lenses with me next time to be able to capture the mold better.

Also the left mirror has been smashed now:

That means the same thing as with the Legend: things will only get worse from now on. :(

I’ll see if I can shoot some pictures of the car covered in leafs upcoming weeks. Would be cool to compare with last years picture. 😛

WTF: Flatbed hauling three RWD Nissans

Found this funny picture on Doriten: a flatbed truck literally hauling a bunch of RWD Nissans!

How to keep it together? Just put a big strap around the Siliva S14 and everything will be tied together! 😀

For the record:
On top: Nissan Silvia S14
On the bottom rear: Nissan Laurel C35
On the bottom up front: Nissan Gloria Y33

DOTS: tuned Nissan 200SX S14

April 4, 2010 in dots

Last week I posted the Nissan 200SX S14 at the end of the winter and now suddenly it has been tuned and fixed up again:

Down on the street: Nissan 200SX S14

Nah, just kidding! I spotted this identically colored Nissan 200SX S14 last summer somewhere in an industrial zone. After this single shot (crapcam died) I only saw it occasionally and each time I was in a hurry or I didn’t have a camera with me…

The 200SX has been tuned lightly: it still has the original rims but it did have a very thick huge exhaust pipe. Also the headlights were swapped and a few other cues have been changed. IMO done with taste! :)
