Title: U13s are ugly - prove me wrong! [pic heavy]
Post by: Cheezel on Oct 17, 2011, 03:11PM
Calling all U13 bluebird owners/lovers - this is a challenge! I've never seen a riced bluebird, or one that isn't left near sleeper spec for that matter! The pastie just can't be hot!

So there's your challenge, U13 sympathisers. ;D

Extra points for crazy/unusual -'shop it if you want, or post actual cars.

Definitely not the prettiest of cars (esp. from the rear). I quite like what Luke did with his. As well as ka-bluey.

If you want to see some 'show car' bluebirds just google "u13 nissan altima", many yanks have 'pimped' their u13's

this one is errrrrrr..... orange

and this one is.....blue. From memory this guy has an intercooler fitted with a pod filter on one end as part of the intake for his ka24de. lol.

and a different blue/purple one

...and this is what a u13 should look like (Lgee's). mmmm, sex on wheels.

Ive had my camera back for bout half an hour so thats been plenty of time to get some photos of the finished product...
Got the front bar painted last Thursday and for now have just taped my old blinkers behind the kit till i can get to the wreckers to find some to fit
I've been changing my mind more than once a day about which way to go with the indicators haha but i think im sticking with the look ive got... lights in the holes next to the number plate and some foggies down in the outer holes...
anyways here are some quick snaps i took this morning

That front bar does absolutely nothing for me. And the chrome moulding around the window makes it look even MORE like a pastie. It made me realise even the windows are pastie-ish.

I actually really like the look of the rear end if done right, aka;
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v101/zextcy/reardon4.jpg)

That looks quite clean, granted there's a retarded amount of work involved in removing the lines from where the bar attaches. Side on, however, that thing would be cack.

I dont think any of them look all that great... Ideally you just need decent wheels and fat rubber... Im not a huge fan of the wheels on my old black bluey any more either. I liked them at the time, but I was 19 so...

Mine kinda looks alright with the track rubber on it, but meh... it's still a turd bird

Haven't had a chance to repaint the car yet since I'm building up the engine.

you made a good point. the colour-mismatch ruins the first impression. Time will fix all

The U13 might look good. The picture's pretty crap though. ;)

Agreed with all of above. Siiiiick rims. Mad as size/offset!

So, I felt the need to resurrect this thread... why didn't this continue? There are/were many pics of bad ass U13's both USDM and JDM variants... I was hoping to get a good read but just one page???

Here are some I figured I add.
1st and only USDM AWD Altima (converted to a Bluebird SSS Attesa)

Pimped or not, I don't like the basic design of the car. :(
