But thats the only thing - and honestly not even the issue to me that seems horrific to most enthusiasts - that tars this otherwise awesome example.
Ironically, and as I've mentioned before; its usually the one detail that saves what seems like all of these from being thrashed to death.
Early production (after being released in 1988), and top of the line for Silvia's in the year. Other than the optioned automatic, this car also has the factory sunroof and the HICAS II four wheel steering system.
Even though this wheel wasn't introduced for a solid decade after the last S13 rolled off the line; seeing them in era-correct sizes, with this much tyre, is beautifully refreshing after years of 18x11's on S13's!
The brown interior isn't ususally my first choice for S13's, but looks great here.. and perfect against the red.
My love for early production S13's means the CA18 is perfectly fine by me!
Beautiful car overall.
I'll keep posting pics of minter S13's until i get tired of it.. and that's sure not likely to happen anytime soon..!
