Marks S12 Grand Prix
« on: 09:11:46 AM / 05-Feb-11 »
Hi guys

I had my eye on this GP for some while now.  But I couldnt afford it, the price was too high. So at certain moment he dropped his price and I made him an offer. He accepted so I suggested to make  a first payment to him, He agreed but then there was some guy from Poland that wanted to buy the car for more money. Agreed to pay his price and make a first payment.
Hadn't heard anything for a couple of days... started tripping out missing the opportunity to buy this car.
Then I just received email from seller that I could make first payment and collect the car.

Me is happy   

So soon hopefully I'll be a proud owner of silvia S12 Grand Prix from 1986.

And the best part is that in Holland cars till the end off 1986 will have no road tax 

So plans are

- coilovers (saw some BCracing)
- polybush the S12
- brake upgrade
- maybe other rims (like 10J rear)
- rollcage

ow and a guy I know at the dutch nissanclub suggested to make the FJ20 FJ20E+T.
Wouldn't say no against that 

Plans? Scare the living sh** out of those beemers on the Nordschleife

Wednesday 02th february 2011

Early rise, at 8 in the morning I was at my mate's place to collect my S12 Grand Prix in Stützengrün (Germany) About 700kmh's from my place.
Stützengrün


Tom Tom said it would take about 9hours drive with speed limitation of 90kmh

Crossed through the whole of Germany with Patrol and trailer






At certain point even dumb dumb (tom tom) lost track



After some hours we came in the direction off Dresden.

The road kept getting smaller, but the Nissan Patrol was still going strong

In the end, after alot of time, random shit chat, shitty coffee and strong diesel we arrived in the small town.
Look around and there the S12 stood

Instand "crush" again

Took a quick peak below the car and the seller came with a half liter of beer.
Started the S12 GP for a moment to see how it runs, testdrive was a problem because of the snow. Lots of it.
Snow and RWD is fun, but not for testride.
Looked in and underneath the car, the previous owner had put new pistons and camshafts in it, according to the seller. So that will be checked.


Car stood still for more then 10 years (suspended)

Car on trailer and then we went into their shed with some typical stuff. Beer, naked posters of ladys, frozen beer and torched beer to unfreeze it.
We also did one beer there and then went home for a long way back.





It had became dark, and after the usefull pitstops, we arrived home.
Parked the car, did some S12 test driving and went home with the mazda 323 (my other car).



I was in bed at 4 and was totally broken.

Thursday 03th february 2011

Today I stood up early, fixed myself a garage for the S12 and went to see the S12 in daylight

Bad points

- paint especially on the fiberglass widefenders
- Ashtray missing, and the foglights front
- absorber right rear is leaking, needs replacement
- exhaust system is leaking near the hand brake cable
- blower only works on 4, so the blower resistence? needs replacement or solder


Good points

- tires with enough rubber
- almost no rust underneath
- as we could tell its well maintaned
- oil is good
- disks and pads are in very good nick
- radiator looks new

Exterior












In the garage

Today I got the keys of the garage, so I drove the car to the garage.

Nice score buddy!

You've got to love those road trips to go get far away/rare cars!

Was the passenger foot brace standards on european car, or on the GP in that matter?

Love the front corner lights, but the Euro tail lights are less nice than the USDM one, maybe someone over here will want to trade their for yours....

How can anyone not find the euro taillights by far the sexiest s12 taillights? The six packs do not even compared. The (usdm anyway) mk2 tails are sexier then the mk1 six packs but the euro tails still easily beat out the mk2 tails in the sexy department.
FIrst my rims are horrible, than there ok when painted black , now my cars horrible, now my fenders are to much after i was told i couldnt do it.... Lol club s12 ftw.....  Only here have Ive been told they look like shit..... SOrry its not bone stock with crown vic rims running the stock vg making 130whp and looks generic like every other one. My car looks dope ive been told this a billion times on local forums....

Love this thing man. Are those little windshield wipers on the headlights? I just noticed those little cage things on the bulbs and I swear one looks like it is motorized.

I love those wide fenders. Looks mean:)
I keep my car cleaner then my room
Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.
