Anyway, let me introduce myself. Everyone knows me by the name of SVP - occasional photo taker & I drive a Silvia. I've always had an interest in automobiles from a young age. When magazines were still around, I would flick through copies of Autosalon and High Performance Imports and having somewhat an artistic background through scribbling with graphite pencils, I took an interest in Photography later down the track. Put two & two together & we end up with a blog.
And this is how the story starts with the Silvia, I was looking at getting a Nissan Silvia S13 because my brother played a big role in why I had chosen this car as a base. From all the modeling & pixel cars he had done of it, I knew I just had to have one since 2010. Searching for two years, which was then 2012, one had finally popped up. Original plan was to get any S13 that was two toned besides Champagne, had to be clean to an extent, standard, manual, no sunroof & non-turbo due to only being on my provisionals at the time.
A friend's brother purchased a Silvia from Perth & brought it to Sydney. Put it up for sale & I had purchased it since it fit my criteria almost to the tee.
While searching for a Silvia, I had a rough idea of how I wanted to modify it, original plan was to go 17's or 18's on optional aero.

Then after seeing John's S13 that was located in Japan, my mind was set. 15's, flares & somewhat factory aero.
Without further adieu, meet Silvia.
