Nick has been a member of the club for just about a year now and hails from Wellington, where he is part of a every increasing group of Pulsar and Primera owners representing the club in the area. Here is his story....




NZPCC: When and why did you first get your Pulsar/Primera?
Nick: I bought my N14 in Spetember 2012 and it was my first car. I had a few criteria that I wanted to tick off which the Pulsar fitted into really well. It was cheap, light and easy to work on and it needed some TLC and had accesible parts. I waited the best part of 6 months for the right one to come up and an opportunity too good to turn down arose so together with Mike (_impulsive) we took off up the island to return with an SR18DE powered N14 Gti.



NZPCC: And what were your original plans for your Pulsar/Primera and have they changed?
Nick:

NZPCC: What performance modifications have you made to your cars?
Nick:really

NZPCC: What mods have you made to the exterior/interior?
Nick:

NZPCC: What do you love best about your Pulsar/Primera?
Nick: I like that it will be a great car. At this stage I can only say that I like that it is easy to work on, reliable and gets me from A to B. Come back in a years time and hopefully it will be more than that :)

NZPCC: Any future modifications planned that we should know about?
Nick:NZPCC: If money was no object what would you do to your Pulsar/Primera?
Nick: I would do everything above.. tomorrow!! Seriously, I would probably take it off the road and strip it all back. Paint it and new or rebuilt everything. Then enjoy it forever and never sell it!

NZPCC: Do you have any performance figures, 1/4 mile times or lap times?
Nick:NZPCC:
Nick:NZPCC: Favourite television programme?
Nick:NZPCC: Are you married, have a partner or are you single and looking?
Nick:NZPCC: What sort of cars have you owned in the past?
Nick:NZPCC: What is your favourite road to drive?
Nick:NZPCC: Do you prefer show, street, circuit or drag?
Nick:

NZPCC: N14, N15, P10, P11 or P12?
Nick:NZPCC:
Nick:NZPCC: Any last comments you would like to make?
Nick:build thread that I will update as I go along.

Great write up Nick. Well done and congratulations.  :D

Couldn't have chosen a better first car IMHO. Good starting point and it looks like your doing everything to a great standard, what a neat little car!
