I’ve not posted anything substantial about my Nissan Cedric since August 2016 (see that post here) so I felt it was time I brought everyone up to speed now that I’ve been posting more photos of him (I’ve never been able to refer to the Cedric as “it”, only “him”…I know, I know) as of late.
Last weekend I drove the short distance down the road from STL HQ to Oulton Park for one of their open pit lane track days. I had been hoping to be taking part in my P10 Primera but I never got round to preparing the car in time, so instead I went down to support Mat in his Primera.
The last time I posted my Y32 Nissan Cedric daily driver on here, it was to list it for sale back in November. The reason for wanting to sell it at the time was that I’d just got my hands on my new C33 Laurel and didn’t see the need for two big four door Nissans. However, despite quite a lot of interest, nobody took the plunge to buy my beloved Diggory, so it sat around for a few months until one day I ended up test fitting this set of WORK Meister M1s to it. This gave me an idea, so I took down the For Sale advert and got busy…
My beloved daily Nissan Y32 Cedric aka “Diggory” is up for sale! I’ve decided to focus my efforts on getting my Laurel as good as it can be and, as much as I’d love to, keeping two old Nissan barges in my life is a little pointless when you think about it. Here are a few photos but you can view the full for sale ad on the Driftworks forum here.
Throwing a drift car around on track is always awesome but to me, half the fun is also being able to drive your dumb drift car to work, to the shops or out to the middle of nowhere for some spirited driving whenever you feel like it. On that note, here’s my new C33 Laurel daily runabout and posh track toy.
While BDC was on at Anglesey I decided to pop down the road to the much closer and less windy Birmingham Wheels to catch the action at the final round of the Drift Outlaws series. The championship requires cars that adhere to the strict safety standards that have become the norm nowadays, although the events themselves are run more like practice days with a competition thrown in for good measure. In short, this results in a lot of seat time and good fun.
