Mid Week Match Up: Drift King

It is Wednesday so that means it’s time for another edition of Daily
Turismo’s version of a vaccination from driving a Camry,  also
known as Mid Week Match-Up!  Last week, we asked readers to find us a car for your ungrateful teenager and received lots of great suggestions.  Today we are going to go another direction and ask our readers to find the best car for taking to an amateur drift event…max price $10k.

If you want to go drifting for fun on the weekend without selling the house, everybody says the car to start with is the Nissan 240SX S13/S14 chassis.  You could buy a stock 240SX and pump your cash into making it go sideways faster better…but this 1990 Nissan 240SX S13 currently bidding for $5,750 reserve-not-met with 7 days to go in British Columbia, Canada looks like a decent way to start.

The SR20DET  engine under the hood has been Fast and Furious’d to the gills with overnight parts from Japan and probably makes a gazillionty and five horsepower.  The builder/seller claims to have spent $100k on the car, so this is your chance to buy it for pennies on the dollar.  

However, we all known that the simplest answer is NEVER the answer on Daily Turismo (also known as riding Occam’s Razor scooter through a ring of fire)…so…What do you suggest as a $10k car for an amateur drift event?  Comments below.
