    Why would you show off that rat's nest of a Sierra engine?

    It's funny how much more room there is in old car engine bays. Everything is in so tight now you need to take half the car to bits to reach anything :p

    Then wait until it's in a better state to show it off? It looks terrible. Dirty, poorly managed and a complete warren!

    Okay okay maybe we ignore the entire Sierra engine bay and just focus on "why is anyone showing off a Sierra estate".

    I guarantee that owner explains to folk how it'll be a modern classic one day :p

    It was really well done. To top it off, it was also turbocharged but I forgot to get a photo!

    I cannot remember the last time I saw a MK2 Civic out in the wild.

    Good spot. Considering the tyres, do we think it's a legit AC Cobra or a kit car?

    Looking at the value of a real one I don't think an owner would put crap tyres on it.

    This one doesn't even have matching ditchfinders :p

    I know there’s a few SXOC’ers on here! Couldn’t remember my log in on that site. I used to have an S14 in this colour! Loved that car, when it wasn’t trying to kill me!?

    I’d love to buy another, such gorgeous cars. Love the proportions

    I do quite like the look of the 200sx
    Its not JDM without a bucket size exhaust! thats quite some camber though

    (looks to be ukdm though, not that im knowledgeable on the specifics of them)

    Think you'll find it's most likely 3"

    I had an s13 with a 3" from the engine all the way to the exit exhaust, it was flipping loud but the power gain was good
