My R31 Gts1 26/30 9 Second Aka "memphis"

Started a thread a while back, but the layout got f**ked up and no moderator would help me, so i started a new one

This was my series 2 silhouette i owned for 4 years, which is now going to scrap metal

This is when i first seen it on carsales, i bought it off a turk from melbourne, he had a bum bag and left 2 points of speed in the boot

and also left oil out of the gearbox so an hour and a half outside of melbourne the gearbox didnt want to work anymore





when i got it rego'd


















So anyway i had a bit of a bingle, and it sat for over a year and i decided to strip it and send it to scrap

All going into this girl here, originally owned by fatz on the forum

heres a couple of pics
