1990 Nissan Silvia

It might look like the lowly 240SX driven by Americans looking for something slightly sportier than a Celica, but this is a Japanese-market Silvia, with plenty of significant differences.

The big deal is the twin-cam turbo engine under the hood. It’s not the newer SR20 series engine–it’s the CA18DET, a slightly-older design that is still a potent, fun powerplant, but not as frequently modified. That’s the key here–so many Silvias have been thrashed into drift cars that any well-spec’d car that is still stock is remarkable. And this one is quite nice.

It’s on eBay in California.
