On 5/13/06, Stillen held their 4th annual Nissan/Infiniti day, but this time NICO was there. With the largest attendance to date for the Stillen show, cars lined the road in front of the shop in both directions, filling the blocked off street with nothing but Nissans.
In addition to the cars lining the street, there was also a large line for the dyno.Some impressive numbers were put down, including a G35 with over 600 HP, an S13 with a stock RB20DET that put down 216 HP, and an ’89 Maxima with nearly 400 HP!
There were some other cars that really stood out although they never hit the dyno.A KA24DET powered 510 and a highly modified R33 Skyline GT-R are two that come to mind.
Overall, there was an excellent turn out with some truly unique cars there.Free food, raffle prizes, and facility tours kept people busy when they were not looking at cars.Short seminars were held throughout the day as well on topics such as supercharging, suspension, and brakes.
The day seemed to go by much quicker than expected, and before we knew it, the crowd was dissipating.It was a short day, but one that will never be forgotten.Talking with Steve Millen himself is awe-inspiring.We ended the day taking a photo with the all-time winingest driver in IMSA GT history, next to what is perhaps the most famous Nissan racecar ever built.
Although this was the first year that NICO has attended this event, it is something we plan on doing again next year.We look forward to having more NICO members attend next year for another event that will truly be memorable! A special thanks goes out to Steve Millen, John Zinn, Jeff, and Margaret Lo for their hospitality while we were there.You guys (and gal) are the best!
