These pages are dedicated to my former automobile, the 1992 Nissan Sentra SE-R pictured above. For six years after taking ownership on September 7, 1992, the car's performance, appearance, and reliability inspired confidence and delivered miles of fun. As a Nissan owner, you already know the Sentra SE-R was born to be driven hard. By mid-1998, however, my car's advancing age and changes in my lifestyle influenced me to go in a new, if not too unfamiliar direction. On September 8, 1998, I handed the keys of my beloved SE-R to another owner, a few days after bringing home a 1996 Acura Integra GS-R four-door sedan. In a single moment, all of my car's good times and bad, from its first stoplight victory to the infamous header saga, vanished into the hands of another driver. That was a sad day, indeed.
Fortunately, you can benefit from my ownership experience in these pages, which were formerly part of Rick's Nissan Page and have been contributed to SE-R.net. If you visited my former Web site and have participated in the SE-R Mailing List , you may be familiar with my past involvement in the SE-R enthusiast phenomenon. Like most serious owners, I performed nearly all of my own work and chatted about it openly with other SE-R drivers. My Nissan knowledge is fading now, but if you have questions about these pages, you may e-mail me.
