What car do you have? Nissan Silvia S13, 1990

How long have you had it? About two years.

Where have you been with it? Down to Hervey Bay. That's the furtherest I've gone in it.

What upgrades have you had done? Got a three-inch exhaust from the turbo back, front mount intercooler, and the boost has been changed in it making the turbo work harder.

What is your favourite feature? Probably the paint. It's my colour.

Would you ever trade it in? Oh, maybe. I plan on doing a bit of work to it soon though.

How do you look after it? Just regular maintenance. Being a turbo car you should service it more often, so every 5000km.

What is your dream car? Yellow Camaro SS 2006
