Searching for my brother's old s14.5

Hello Zilvia world - it has been a long time.

This is a long shot, but figured it was worth a try. My brother has been a long-time member on Zilvia and sold his s14.5 back in 2010 on here. Best I know, the car was sold off to someone in the New York area and potentially used it in a drift circuit on the east coast. Below is the link for the original sale ad.

https://zilvia.net/f/showthread.php?t=324946

In 2017 my brother passed away from brain cancer and left his wife and 4 kids behind. This car was his greatest passion in life, prior to having his kids. I would love to find any part of this car and start piecing something together for his kids to enjoy later in life. If you have any info or even some stories of what happened to this car it would be greatly appreciated. My fear is it is in a junkyard and died a quick death in a drift event, but you never know.

Thanks for any info.

Good luck and sorry to hear about your brother.

Please let us know where this journey takes you!!!!

I vaguely remember, did this car also have a flat bottom? I thought I saw something like this car on a time attack website, but good luck!

If you have the VIN you should be able to run a Carfax to see where it might be located these days.

Good luck!

Yes, I started thinking about the vin today. Not sure I have anything, but I will look. This car was actually sold twice on zilvia, I wonder if there is any archive of deleted PM’s that might contain it?

Thanks for the encouragement…. I also know the car never had a flat bottom when he owned it, but certainly could have been added.

No, he sold it off to someone on the east coast. I am pretty sure it went to New York.

Awesome - glad it made it a few years at least. Did the event have a name? Wondering if I could find any info on who was driving it.

I dug through years of photos today and found some images that capture a blurry image of the vin # on the firewall.

Here is the best guess I have currently... but it doesn't pull anything up online.

JN1AS44D5S4008827


According to this : https://www.nissanhelp.com/diy/common/nissan_vin.php
The engine code of "A" seems wrong, but there are multiple options for a ka24de. Also, the photo sure makes that letter look like an "A" and the other options don't seem to fit.

I really hope you track this car down. ...and then you have to convince the owner to sell...That part of L.I. is an area with money (any near Dix Hills), so hopefully that car is still intact and with most of its original gear on it.
