I contacted Marcus Hyden a month back about getting some photos together for Fatlace. I think his car is perfect for a feature. It’s clean and subtle enough yet aggressive enough at the same time to let know he loves his Silvia. He imported this car to Finland early in 2010 with the intention of modding this car and driving it to the fullest. He tells me the Japanese tuning culture has blown up in Finland in the last few years. JDM rides are being imported regularly to his area. Marcus has one of the three or four total S15’s in Finland that are road legal. Possibly because they are newer than most JDM cars they go for a serious penny. They are even more than R32 and R33 Skylines. This car is his daily driver now. He has the ride height set to be a reasonable car also. It could be lower he says, but this is perfect for the way he uses it. Marcus’ next plan is to buy a car that is more common in the USA, but is not a very common car in Finland. I hope we can get a feature together for that ride when it happens too!
