S12 in Hemming's Motor News
« on: 09:53:04 PM / 01-Jul-12 »
The  editors over at Hemming's decided to showcase my SE again,
 this time in their current issue of Hemming's Motor News, July 2012, (pages 2 & 32).
That's me in the driver's seat in the top pic.

Aha young grasshoppers, shortened versions of both of my Hemming's 200sx features are on the world wide internets,
 & it's Ish-Free.
 http://blog.hemmings.com/?s=200sx
 (fyi, hemmings dot com>hemmings blog>search hemmings blog>"200sx")
They give a nice plug for club-s12.org in the articles.
btw my true age is unimportant unless club-s12 gives a senior discount.
Pretty sure I am the eldest member but not too sad if I'm not.

Alright, post up that age and be proud to do it!  Cutter will vouch for me, "Old Guys Rule" so if you really are the oldest, that makes you King of the World!

That's your car?? NICE!  I read that first article before I even bought my s12.  It pretty much sealed the deal that I was getting one.

Getting back on-topic,

Red is such a sexy color for S12s.
Nah, quoted for future use because not only is it lame and old, but it's a direct link to Schizo posting up homoerotic menswear fanfiction.

Red is a sexy color on most cars, but is probably wasted when you see it on a boxy Volvo.

Some cars, red just looks too flashy, too fashion statement. Some cars are more reserved and pull it off without coming on too strong.

Thanks Keith! but ya, those pics are actually over 6 years old. It's presently overdue for some wax & elbow grease on the exterior. The engine bay though looks every bit as good or better than the first time you saw it because I recently did a lot of work on it, t-belt, w-pump etc.- will post up pics from that  adventure on p-bucket when I have a few min. Still have a short list of things to do under the hood, suspension (bushings) & body (re-mount front SE lip), but these days I would rather pedaling be on my road bike, which is also red.

Greg, you got it featured again! I love how well your car represents S12's and C-S12... again! :thumbsup: Way to go, man!

I think Cutter is in his 50's.... not sure if you're above or below that range :P Then next down from him is Keith, and then me....

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch

I'm turning 60 this year, 2014, but I really don't want to win the oldest guy contest.
I ain't gonna part with the S12, but I think I'm supposed to get a new Caddy so I can enjoy my golden years.
