History

In 1997 while still in high-school, company founder Loz Glen imported one of the first Nissan Silvia S13's into Australia and started the website nissansilvia.com. 

JDM Imports were almost unheard of at this time so with the help of a few core team members, the forums were created to connect JDM owners with likeminded people, find information and share their stories. 

Nissansilvia.com quickly grew to become Australia's #1 car website, generating over 2 million hits a day, eventually expanding around the world with over two dozen regional car clubs worldwide and monthly events across the globe, at it's peak we had over 80,000 individuals regularly contributing to the content and forums.

At this stage we started sponsoring motorsports, drivers & car clubs, it was this chance meeting with the local Nissan and Toyota clubs and dealers which led to the development our very first "generation hoodie" which have now become so instantly recognisable.

Fast forward 20 years and the internet shifted rapidly to social media, but even with the forum days behind us we continued to expand the merch and community involvement.

In 2014 we launched our USA Warehouse, and by 2016 our Japanese regional office was launched in Osaka.

We have sponsored and been involved with many events, brands & teams over the years, from V8 Supercars, GT Series, ADGP, Drift Australia, D1GP Japan, Formula Drift and more. We continue to sponsor Pro Drivers from around the globe as well as attend multiple events.
