Last week NSW police near Mittagong on the Hume Highway detected a speeding motorist travelling at 263km/h which on its own is a worry but in this case is just the start of a tale of highway hi-jinx.

The driver was a 21-year old lad who hails from Rouse Hill in Sydney who was on his way home after a day at the track in his 1995 Nissan 200SX. According to press reports the dashboard was loose, the back seats were removed, the battery was held in place by a bracket (and well placed rag) and there was a strong smell of petrol. Oh, and the bodywork was secured with cable ties…

Translated, we take that to mean that some of the cars panels were secured with cable ties, quite possibly lightweight bonnet and boot-lid panels given that this sounds like one very ‘dedicated’ track machine.

The driver has been banned from driving the stripped out racer until it is returned to a roadworthy condition and will appear in the Moss Vale Local Court on June 16 to answer speeding charges.

Mike would be happy to adopt the 200SX, promising to provide it with a good home and plenty of love and attention.

Appreciate the tip Bavarian Missile!
