Do you think when you get in your SE-R that you are driving something exclusive?? Like you are driving a rare car that you feel special to own..? I know I do. I know these are not 20k cars, or new for that much but they feel special for some reason. I am mainly talking about the classics but all sr20 cars are phat. Maybe it's just me?

I feel the same way when I drive mine..
Sometimes I feel like I should have a sticker on the back that says, SR20DE inside
You Better Reconize. It is a semi Rare car.

I see G20's everywhere often driven by white haired people. Little more luxo with nicer badge.

I know my classic is cherry but the mainstream gives no respect at all so don't expect to impress. The best is to get a passenger who knows nothing about the car and rev it high with some hard shifts..Then they realize.

ssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Don't want EVERYONE to know.

They will give up their Civics!


Keep the "sleeper" a secret Then, STOMP THEM! (Walk softly and carry a big stick!) They will figure it out.

We know what we have! Remember the Clark Kent/Superman comparison in Car & Driver?

I find myself swiveling my not-too-flexible neck around whenever I'm out, whether in the 200, my Miata or even the Tiger, when I see a Sentra or 200SX -- looking for the telltale SE-R emblem or 5-spoke wheels. Once in a while I'm rewarded.


Not too many NX's or G20's, though.

Yeah, special; not only not common, but most folks -- even many car enthusiasts -- don't even know what an SR20DE is.

I had some riceboy joke accord wagon driver walk past my car at an autocross and say to his buddy "Nice cars but the owners never know anything about the engine". My brother had to hold me in the car I was so mad. I guess not everyone reads super street like they do.
It was so right that I beat him by over 6 seconds.

It's neat when you see a fellow sr20 in a parking lot and they want to talk to you. In 8 months it happened twice at a gas station and a music store. I met a classic driver who is really old (retired), glass pack exhaust, with hawaii plates. Cool guy, hope to be like him when I'm 65yrs old.

91-94 Nissan Sentra's are a dime a dozen here in south Florida, but a SE-R is a little rare. Especially one in good condition. Here in south Florida there are a **** load of civics and integras
so a classic Se-r sticks out like a MOFO! Lately I have been noticing alot of Classic Se-r's comming out from underneath the rocks. It awesome.! I love my classic and I always feel happy and proud when I am driving it

Im still going to be racing when I get old. Its in my blood!! I dont care what I look like. I'll beat a fool in my motorized scooter with my light weight battery. I love sportcompacts. ITS ME!! I cant see myself in a huge f-body or truck or anything. What I like about the SE-R is that I know I have a certain model that kicks ass. And when I drive around I hold my head up high and ride out.

Also, it is extremely rare, to ever see a riced out G20
I think i have seen one ricy G20. But now the SE-R's, oh boy. I just saw a 200sx today with blue seran rap on his headlights.
