Hi guys,

my Name is Max, im 27 and from the south of Germany. Ive signed up here because from what ive read there no bigger combined knowledge about these cars than in this Forum

Sorry, my english is getting a lil' rusty since...well covid made me stay in Germany for basically the last 3 Years.

Ive recently bought a std. cab Hardbody, wich is quite rare in germany. AFAIK we only got the extended Cabs new in Germany.
There are like 3 or 4 std. cabs here, basically all of them came to Germany with soldiers being stationed here way back .

I really wanted a Hardbody since forever, atleast since Ive seen some of the Garage Miniz Hardbodys from Japan. Especially this one:

So I bought this Gem:

I didnt buy it like that though...bought it like this:

It apparently came from the US to Germany quite a few Years ago, been with a soilder for quite a few Years and then got German Papers like 4 Years ago.
Its been rolled green, been rolled kinda baby poo bown-ish underneath and the original white has been brushed over in a few places too, all 4 Fenders got some quite interesting Bondo repairs...but the frame, cab and Bed seem quite good
I want it to be the original white again...so im in the process of sanding everything down.

As any clever Car or Truck Guy would do, ive also bought Wheels already.

There are currently 195/60 (OE 240SX Size) Tires on...but I guess ill step it up to a 195/65 when it comes to actually driving on those wheels.

The Truck will be getting lowered but there are some quite strict laws n germany regarding lowering wheels and so on...
There are currently 4 in lowering Blocks approved with the car, so those are going to make there way back...and maybe some modified hangers

I also ripped a load of wiring out of the Car, the previous owner somehow thought a KA24, RWD, Hardbody would make the perfect overlanding Vehicle and put a second Battery aswell as some super sketchy lights and shit into the Car. He also put a "Bed" in the Bed wich reminded me of a coffin quite alot

Thats just the wires i ripped out...

and said Coffin:

Ive been kinda obsessed with 90s Nissans for the past few years.

Im the proud owner of this thing:

and in 2020 Ive also had this thing (hence the 240 aka. 200SX Tire sizes)

My dad will be looking at a Nissan Primera (Infinti G20 for you guys) in 2 Weeks to add to the weird an wonderful collection.

Ive also had like 10 different BMWs in the last 10 Years of driving but I guess no one cares about those.

That S13 is not mine though...

Yep, that was some NCO's pimped ride. Nice... Even has the vent visors. You'll luv them. Don't break them. I suspect they may be NLA.

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

AVS still makes those vents. They are about 40 bucks. I have a new set on my pathfinder.
