The End of the Line: Nismo S13 Silvia

I think my time in the GTA SA Modding community has come to a close. My free time is diminishing and my interest is waning. The community has shrunk since I've joined, many of the people I once knew have moved on, and I think it's my time too. I still have a large project folder of about 75 unfinished cars, and only time will tell what I will decide to do with them.

In my time as a modder, I had my share of successes and failures, like the Mugen NSX through which I became a JSW member and FOK, which was a flop on my part. However, from both of those experiences I have learned that groups and clans have their place in modding, but only if everyone is equal, accepted and motivated.

Anyways, it's been a great 3 years, and I've learned a lot, and even though GTA V for PC comes out tomorrow, I feel done, bored and retired from GTA.

I would like to thank the following people:
Marko - for being my closest friend in the GTA community and teaching me
Flash - for working me on many projects, teaching me and urging me to learn to scratch parts
GTR - for converting some of my stuff and teaching me to convert
gred - for inspiring me and always providing an example of quality with fewer polies
FR-Style - for giving me some helpful pointers early on
Keisuke - for providing me with example cars and his blog which started it all for me
