Roy Nishimura's '91 Nissan 300ZX

Issue: March 1997
Highlights: GReddy exhaust; HKS EVC; Veilside Andrew V wheels
Why we still like it: One of the first Nissans we've ever featured. It had more than 400 hp, which—at the time—was insane.

Kyle Puckett's '93 Nissan 300ZX

Issue: October 1998
Highlights: Jim Wolf Technology port 500 turbos; NOS dry system; GReddy intercoolers; Racing Hart Tracer wheels; Brembo brakes; Momo seats
Why we still like it: Just like it is today, the American sport compact scene in the late '90s was hungry for a Nissan Skyline, but our prayers went unanswered. To make matters worse, Nissan proceeded to axe the 240SX. Kyle Puckett did the best thing he could by creating his idea of a Skyline equivalent with his 300ZX.

Non Fujita's '97 Nissan 240SX

Issue: August 1999
Highlights: Blitz intake, exhaust; Tomei strut bars; O.X. Mito wheels; Brembo brakes; Enonvativ type R33 body kit; NISMO seats
Why we still like it: One of the first Nissans ever to grace the cover! And, Non was rocking fender flares way before you did.

Mark Mazurowski's '88 Nissan Silvia

Issue: October 2000
Highlights: CA18DET motor; Garrett T048 turbo; OS Giken twin-plate clutch; Work wheels
Why we still like it: Mark gained a reputation as a fast driver in the Okinawa scene with this Silvia. What's even better is that he did all of the work himself.

Tod Kaneko's '72 Datsun 280ZX

Issue: August 2001
Highlights: HKS GT3540 turbo, intercooler; race-prepped 280ZX gearbox; Eibach springs; Chevel Sport wheels; Sparco steering wheel
Why we still like it: Tod stays true to the L-series lineage, though it's been opened up to 3.1 liters using a diesel crank. This Z would still be badass in the current car scene.

Mark Daniel Laguinto's '91 Nissan 240SX

Issue: August 2002
Highlights: SR20DET swap; Kaaz LSD; Zeal coilovers; Advan SA3 wheels
Why we still like it: Both the Advan wheels and the 180SX tails are timeless classics that we'll never stop loving.

Hironao Yokomaku's '90 Nissan Skyline

Issue: February 2003
Highlights: Veilside-built engine; HKS GT3450 turbo; Holinger six-speed sequential transmission; Andrew Racing V wheels
Why we still like it: This R32 proved that Veilside wasn't only about looks as this RB26 pushed well over 1,000 hp and was built for the dragstrip.

Benjamin Abutin Jr.'s '03 Nissan 350Z

Issue: December 2004
Highlights: Power Enterprise twin-turbo kit; TEIN coilovers; Brembo brakes; custom JGTC widebody kit
Why we still like it: This is proof that history repeats itself. The widebody trend didn't start with you millennials; it happened when you were still in junior high.

Gene Hickman's '97 Nissan 240SX

Issue: November 2005
Highlights: SR20DET swap; GReddy intake manifold; GT30R turbo; JIC coilovers; Top Secret body kit
Why we still like it: What would you expect from the owner of Frederick Nissan in Maryland? How about a list of top-shelf JDM parts, an S15 conversion, and an SR20DET pushing more than 500 hp!

Marco Vargas' '71 Nissan Skyline GT-X

Issue: May 2006
Highlights: 2.8L L6 engine; triple Mikuni carburetors; Cusco coilovers
Why we still like it: We shouldn't have to explain why we still love this Hakosuka, or any other Hakosuka for that matter.

Nadine and Benson Hsu's '89 and '91 Nissan 240SXs

Issue: November 2007
Highlights: A'PEXi AX53 turbo, Power FC; Nagisa Auto Shakitto plate
Why we still like it: The cute couple that connected through the love for Nissan's 240SX. Still a better love story than Twilight...

Andy Kim's Nissan '05 Nissan 350Z

Issue: November 2008
Highlights: custom HKS GT-RS twin turbo kit; ARC oil catch tank; Project Mu brakes; Ings+ aero kit
Why we still like it: We love the one-off, custom carbon Ings+ body kit. You could easily mistake his Z32 for an HKS demo car.

Kazuhiro Fujioka's '01 Nissan Silvia

Issue: June 2009
Highlights: Toda Racing pistons; Auto Produce Boss intake; JUN camshafts; NISMO six-speed transmission; GP Sport body kit
Why we still like it: There's a reason why Kazuhiro's company is called Boss Auto Produce, and it has something to do with his personal 440 hp Silvia.

Motohiro Taniguchi's '91 Nissan Silvia

21 nissan features to remember motohiro taniguchi isan silvia Photo 15/22   |   21 Nissan Features To Remember Motohiro Taniguchi Isan Silvia

Issue: May 2010
Highlights: HKS GT-RS turbo; Tomei pon-cams; NISMO clutch; Work VS-KF wheels; Spirit Rei Odyvia body kit; Bride seats
Why we still like it: Motohiro, the owner of Spirit Rei, was the man who decided to incorporate Honda RB2 Odyssey headlights into a Silvia body.

Peter and Theresa Vong's '95 Nissan 240SX

21 nissan features to remember peter theresa vong nissan 240SX Photo 16/22   |   21 Nissan Features To Remember Peter Theresa Vong Nissan 240SX

Issue: August 2011
Highlights: 5.7L LS1; Hinson supercharger; D2 Air suspension; SSR Vienna Kreis wheels; C-West front bumper
Why we still like it: At the time, Peter and Theresa did something most Nissan fanatics would cringe at: an LS swap. Nowadays, anything LS-powered is essentially a dime a dozen.

Brett Levan's '93 Nissan 240SX

21 nissan features to remember brett levan 240SX Photo 17/22   |   21 Nissan Features To Remember Brett Levan 240SX

Issue: October 2012
Highlights: turbocharged KA24DE; SPEC clutch; BC Racing coilovers; Work Meister S1 wheels
Why we still like it: Brett's S13 was built with the combined effort of his dad and grandpa. Major props.

Ricky Kwan's Nissan '09 Nissan GT-R

Issue: April 2013
Highlights: Switzer P800 turbo kit; BenSopra widebody kit; Yokohama Advan RS wheels
Why we still like it: Ricky was one of the first to build a BenSopra GT-R stateside. If you look closely, his car made it into the Fast and Furious 6 closing scene.

Chris Milan's '96 Nissan 240SX

21 nissan features to remember chris milan 240SX Photo 19/22   |   21 Nissan Features To Remember Chris Milan 240SX

Issue: October 2014
Highlights: 1JZ-GTE swap; right-hand-drive conversion; rebuilt OZ Superleggera II wheels
Why we still like it: We love Chris' wild imagination. His S14 isn't everyone's cup of tea, but we welcome his bold style.

Lloyd Morales' '96 Nissan 240SX

Issue: May 2015
Highlights: SR20DET swap; Garrett GTX3076R turbo; Blitz intercooler; Zeal coilovers; Work wheels; Vertex aero
Why we still like it: Lloyd's S14 is still one of the cleanest in the Bay Area; a perfect example of a complete build, from head to toe.

Robb Ferguson's '96 Nissan 240SX

21 nissan features to remember robb ferguson 240SX Photo 21/22   |   21 Nissan Features To Remember Robb Ferguson 240SX

Issue: March 2016
Highlights: KA24DE; Tomei M8270 turbo; Rocket Bunny Boss kit; Bride Histrix bucket seats
Why we still like it: Robb stole our hearts with a well-executed Rocket Bunny Boss S14, and just look at those Bride Histrix seats!

Ben Schwartz' '89 Nissan Skyline GTE

Issue: April 2017
Highlights: RB26DETT swap; GReddy everything
Why we still like it: It's the best Nissan Skyline GTE sedan in the world.
