The SXOC is a car owners club run by a dedicated team of enthusiasts. The car that inspires us is the Nissan 200SX and is a powerful car in many ways. It has gripped like-minded drivers who enjoy the driving experience given from a great rear-wheel drive car that is rewarding to own. This appreciation has led to a very successful owners club and we welcome you to explore the forum.
Non-members can use the forum and access a wealth of information. The 200SX technical sections are impressive. Use the search facility and find out!

After spotting a post on the S-Chassis Facebook page that one of their admins was visiting family in Leeds and had some limited edition stickers Jake was quick to claim them! Carey, (the S-Chassis admin) from New Zealand, told us he was suffering from withdrawal symptoms from the lack of decent Japanese cars in the UK… so we set out to change that.A plan was hatched to meet up with us and have a look round some nice UK spec 200sx’s. After some back and forth between Jake and myself, we decided to not just meet up with him but to organise a meet in his honour!Sorting a time and place at such short notice wasn’t easy, but we settled on Monday evening at the biggest car park close to Leeds we could find: Showcase Cinemas in Birstall, Leeds.So the location was sorted, just the task of rounding up some decent Japanese metal! Which thanks to the wonders of modern technology was only a few texts and a Facebook event away! With the SXOC regulars up for it we enlisted the help of local club Team440 who host regular events in the area, and soon had a decent amount of interestWe weren”t expecting many to turn up with the short notice and it being a ‘school’ night so when we arrived at 7.30 and there were already cars there, we were more than surprised!The location turned out to be a great, quiet little area (apart from a few Vauxhall drivers…) and might be a possible future area for meets. Massive thanks to everyone that attendedBig shout out to Jake Dent & SXOC, Gary Sung & Team440, Carey Simpson & S-Chassis and Martin Day PhotographySee you next time…..By Liam Rhodes
