That’s right, the bastardized Silvia we all hate because it’s not a track ready factory built drift car, like the other Silvias are. Right? WRONG

Ain’t nothin’ wrong with a convertible Silvia. At the end of the day, 20 year old Nissans aren’t the first word in stiffness or lightness or anything. They’re a good base for a drift car, and if you want that drift car to be topless I won’t stand in your way. And if you *gasp* want a Silvia as a nice, light, agile road car, you could do worse than a Varietta.

Enthusiasting done right in my opinion
