PASMAG Feature: Matt Field’s 1997 Nissan 240sx S14.5

It’s safe to say that our Formula Drift withdrawals are seriously kicking in (more than ever)! Round 1 of Formula Drift starts up again next month so the urge is justifiable. Fortunately, our friends over at Performance Auto and Sound Magazine came to the rescue with a feature on Matt Field’s Formula Drift Nissan 240sx.

You can read up on PASMAG’s full feature by clicking on the link at the end of the post. In the meantime, here’s a small preview:
