As anyone that still reads this probably knows, I recently decided to part ways with my 240SX project. In was not a decision that I took lightly, and I have caught my fair amount of flack for doing so, but it simply felt like the right timing in my life to move on. I enjoyed building this car immensely, and met lots of great people along the way.
Saturday will be the four year anniversary of the day I bought the car. Shortly after deciding to move forward with the partout, I got a text from a Zilvia member that happened to be in town from Madison, WI and wanted to buy my complete kouki 180SX aero while he was here that night. The opportunity to avoid shipping all of that stuff was too good to pass up, so I agreed. I rushed home from work, gave the car a quick wash (it was still filthy from my trip to Illinois) and took it out for one last cruise.
The photos you see below took place after the wash and before my final drive in the S13. I took as many snaps as I could, then headed out onto the freeway for a few final rips before taking it all apart. After breaking a couple of traffic laws and driving like more of a jerk than I ever have in my life, I pulled it in the garage and turned the key off for the final time. Man, this is kind of depressing, lol. The tear down process began that night.
Anyway, here are the photos that I feel turned out decent. I’m no photographer, but I had a good time with it. With that, I give you the final photoshoot! October 15th, 2012.
I somehow managed in my haste to miss taking an engine bay shot. Here’s one that was taken about a week before by Loren, the gent that purchased my full aero setup:
It was an awesome journey! I’ve got a couple more pics I will post up for the four year anniversary on Saturday. I’ll also be sure to toss a couple up of what the car looks like when it leaves my possession, haha. Thanks for the support!
