What car would you like to buy next?: Nothing of interest, but I would like to get my dream bike along with keeping my 180.
I had an fascination in my uncles 300kw Black Toyota supra when I was really young back in the 90s and his Suzuki gsx-R600. From there Japanese cars and sport bikes specifically really caught my attention all throughout highschool. It wasn’t until after highscholl I got my first motorbike because it was cheaper to run and but and that’s when I started going to car meets. Then when I met my boyfriend he was able to hook me up with an extremely cheap clean 180sx. And the modifications and passion mainly started there.
In 2014 my 180sx and my partners type x was featured in a popular Australian magazine called hot4’s. Then in the same year my car was used in a music video for a very popular Australian musician/DJ named DJ Havana Brown. In 2016, my car was featured in a video made by Tith Brothers and.
Well there you have it ladies and gentlemen. Cathy sure does have a nice 180 and something for a little inspiration for all of you that may need some on your build. I like it!
