Theme Tuesdays: Outside Of The Box Drift Platforms

7

While s-chassis and AE86s have proven themselves tim,e and time, again as capable drift cars I’m positive I am not alone in wishing that there was a little more vehicle variety in the drifting world.

Sure it might not be the most cost efficient way to go about things but there is something to be said for those who do things the hard way.

Today’s post is a bit of a a salute to those people.

I first came across this s10 in 2008 maybe? It was auto with a trans cooler that is all I can remember modification wise

This s10 is much more modified and wild as hell

I can’t imagine that the NSX is an easy car to slide around given it’s size and motor placement

With the right person behind the wheel these trucks seem to slide pretty well

non_typical_drift_16_proton_satria
At first I thought this was a Civic but it turns out to be a Proton Satria which is a Malaysian vehicle that was in production from 95 to 2005. This particular one has been converted from FF to RWD

The owner obviously has a unique sense of style

I’m positive there are more unique platforms out there so feel free to let me know via the comments.

  1. I like the thinking behind that Trabant.. “Wide body kit, no worries!”

    And the Proton Satria was a rebadged Mitsubishi Mirage/Lancer CC

    And the Ford Sierra was rebadged in North America as the Merkur

    • I knew about the Merkur rebadge (hence my calling it that) but I didn’t know the Proton was Mitsu. That’s rad!

      Crazy how civic like it looks.
