While Larry ran about the track to cover the actual Gymkhana Grid event, I scoured the Mass Appeal car show in search of stand out cars. This particular Nissan 200SX S12 coupe stuck out as these cars don't get as much attention as their drift-friendly younger siblings.
Pop-up lights are by far, the coolest thing to come out of automobiles in the 1980s. Everytime you flip the switch and see those lights flip up, you can't help but feel even cooler than Michael Knight.
It's good to see the JDM-originated sleepy eye look still popular.
It's cars like these that prove that you really don't need to do much to a car to make it look good. A slight drop and a tasteful selection of wheels is all you really need. I found it rather humorous that this car was sporting…
…this sticker on the back window. The car isn't slammed to the point where you can't enjoy it on the not-so-great Los Angeles roadways but is low enough to look good and improve handling.
This set of 16×7 BBS mesh wheels, which came off a Ford Crown Victoria, fit just perfectly on the car. It's good to see a car at a car show without an excessive amount camber.
It's nice to see these more obscure Japanese cars start to gain some popularity. With pretty much anything from the 80s becoming cool again, I'm sure we're going to see a resurgence of many of these boxier RWD cars.
More car spotlights to come from the Gymkhana Grid car show!
