Here's from Saturday night at the Bridge. I used my mom's camera which has problems so forgive me... I had to work today so I couldn't come to the actual event.



My green '98 Kouki on the right





The infamous LS1 swap!

Chris, cnichols, or whatever you prefer to be called, you sir have one beautiful and bad *** car. Friday night I saw when you left the lot (but returned shortly). Did you dent your floorboard? Cause when you fishtailed, I think this guy's girl who was near me had an orgasm cause she screamed "damn baby hit it, hit it." I don't know if you did or not but did you happen to run across a silver ls swapped fd? I would have love to see y'all taunt each other cruisin over bridge. Congrats yo!

All I know is that Chris' car was beautiful.

Chris, how much did it end up costing you for the swap? I wanted to ask you when I was talking to you back on Saturday at the bridge but there were so many people around you and the car I didn't want to be so forward. (I'm the one who was saying he needed a 5spd. swap)

Agreed. Still debating, because at the moment I don't scrape/rub anywhere which is nice considering the quality of St. Louis roads. But, I need to decide quick before I go get this thing aligned. Once I do that, I'd like to leave it where it's at. I admit, the front could use a little lowering...the back will stay where it's at.

You should have introduced me to her when I got back.

No, but I did see that silver one the next day though and wondered what would happen if we lined em up.

I'd say the swap cost roughly $7500 give or take, but it can be done much cheaper.

Thanks for the compliments everyone...it's been a long, hard road, but it's finally there.

Great to see everyone! Looking forward to Atlanta. Going to be A LOT more fun than Nashville was.

Jesda told me that a couple people were exactly as I expected them to be. LOL

He said he had a good time to but some of it was a rice fest.

This ones for you Greg....look it's NSR and they're washing cars.

We definitely took our trash can from the room, filled it with ice water from the cooler and used car wash soap on the Sentra. Dedicated

Headed over to the Lane Auto Museum. This place was A-W-E-S-O-M-E

On display May- Oct was Citroen. They had quite a bit of cars there.

Crazy 2-way Citroen. 2 fronts welded together

We were all excited as they had a DATSUN-Nissan section

















1967 Toyota Sports 800

Crazy lil Subaru

Hercules Wankel.....rotary powered bike

LARC-LX Military vehicle....9ft tires...this thing was mammouth

Alternate fuel Nissan

By Sunday I was beat! I went back to the hotel and passed out until late night. I called Fat Moe's to make sure they were open but sadly, no answer late on Sunday night. Went to Krystal's instead and got a ticket for 45 in a 30 just a few hundred feet away from my hotel.

Here's a sampling of our 350+ pictures

The trip down on friday

Josh, Joe, and Sheets following us in Josh's Sentra





Catching a break at a rest stop

Stupid traffic jam in Cincy

Awesome afternoon sun shots



Back out on the open road

Saturday morning keeping busy cleaning the 10lbs of bugs off the cars before heading over to the Lane Motor Museum

Some pics from inside the Museum



Sweet old school Honda roadster

Scooby pickup

Very clean Mini

Nissan delivery truck

A poster in the Museum....anybody notice the Z32 on there?

Waiting at the Hard Rock

Having some drinks with NICO members at the Hard Rock Cafe bar

Nice old Edsel Police Car that I spotted in a gravel lot from out our hotel room window

Some pics from the show on sunday....which contrary to popular bitching had a ton of very nice cars at it





Priceless License Plate on a nice CRX

Some Maxima's from the NICO section



The Skyline in the NICO display looked good and as always, drew a ton of JDM fanboys over

Turbo s130

Jerry didn't care for the primer at all, but its a TT Z32...what's not to like?

Turbo 200sx

Wes' Q

Kimber's Versa

Another Z32 that was in the NICO section

Some punk kid's Sentra

s14's







Supra with a turbo the size of a dinner plate

Pure sex

Kouki s14 brought out by Nissan Motorsports

The brand new NISMO 350Z....serial number 0000



I'm seeing triple

Was nice to see some other white kouki's and be able to take pics together

Jerry had to take a picture of this....Evan eating fried chicken and pouring out some of his 40 for his fallen homies

On the way home we came across a whole bunch of indy trailers on the highway

Kentucky redneck water tower

Surprisingly awake for a picture after the long weekend

I have a lot more pictures, but we're sick of uploading them so hopefully this was enough to keep everyone happy

Anyway, we had a blast and wished the weekend was longer. Thanks to everybody who put forth the hard work to make it happen and make it fun. Can't wait to do it again!

And for the picture of Evan.....we all know he's a poser lol

I don't believe is wasn't auto (as in not your old one) and it has a fresh paint job, exhaust, lip, etc. He's from Alabama and purchased it down there I believe.
