BLACK ON BLACK: NOB’s 180SXMarch 9, 2009 12:30 am
When we were at Mizunami Circuit the other day, I noticed that NOB rolled in with a car that looked like his Vertex Ridge-kitted 180SX, but in black instead of red.
Turns out someone had rear-ended him, and the panelbeater had suggested repainting the whole car with something new, so NOB decided on “makkuro”, or “pitch black”.Tags: 180SX, Nissan, Nobuteru Taniguchi

red is better, makes the car faster. 😛
not sure which is cooler
new paint or nob’s pants
haha love the pitch black! but for some reason i dont like the little spokes of the wheels sticking out much.. perhaps they’re too skinny and weak looking for such a tough car? my opinion only..
WOW that 180 is hot! now i know what i need to do to mine, lol. Any more pics maybe a wallpaper?
request a wallpaper of that car if you have other shots.
Damn, it looks so familiar but then again so different. It’s very cool that he still drives his collection of Silvias.
Black+Vertex+NOB for the win
awesome new colour…..
the black almost makes the car look “tame” compared to in your face red but then you look a little closer (and at the driver) and you pretty much figure its not tame
I was in NOB blog but looks very cool in this pic.
More information please.
I enjoy the looks of the car from the front fender back. The front bumper itself I think is a bit to busy; I know there are many more ‘extreme’ front bumpers out there; I would almost think the later year stock bumper would have been a better choice, maybe with a nice angular lip that matched the side skirts. You know, something more pedestrian.
I guess it breaks down to the fact that the flat black, rims and tires are really making this car what it is visually.
Also, it needs more cowbell.
His 15 was/is cool.
This car was/is not cool
Are you kidding me?!?!?!
that looks badass!
Tell me you would want to drive that car around
Personally, I love it…and NOB was cool enough to pose for the shot.
Can you believe he’s 37 years old? Still looks in his 20s.
I love this car!!! Love it in black too.
If i could just ust change those Advan RSs. They look ugly on a black 180sx. What about some gunmetal Super Advan’s!
Damn, he’s 37? Yeah, I agree, he looks like he’s in his 20’s.
i agree with BH. this car seems too high off the ground and i never liked black wheels on a drift car. his pants are cool though.
That looks awesome, with the front canards it gives the front end a different look from all the other 180’s out there with Vertex kits…
It looks clean and sinister…NOB is also a legend
I think it looks F’ing AMAZING in black.
