Year of the Vert

When F31club started, Most of us were into drifting and the M30 coupes. Some didn’t even know the convertible version existed.

When we started to build F31club, it was suggested to have a convertible section, which JCrapps named Vertville.

Then convertible owners, Zydeco, Sundowner, Fallen01, M301192, Muffinman, DrewZee87T, ClassicF31, tuanies, Nyeark and Glenn and many others help to build it.

In my mid 2000s trip, I met with a few M30 convertible owners and it was amazing to compare differences back then (even now).

Well, it is also the Heisei era, in which the M30 convertible (and M30s in general) fall into the era. This is the last year of the Heisei, which is 31 years.

Mark (Strikevalk) has been keeping his M30 convertible in hibernation since he’s been building the 3 coupes he has.


Chris (Nyeark) has also been building his M30 convertible.


Jim P (which gave me the 4 verts in one picture) HAS been on a convertible mission.


James D. also has been working on his 2 M30 convertibles.


Zack/PPI picked up one too!

Mark M. Vert status?

Michael V, Dan M, Ron T, Court E, Ryan T, Iwan (The Netherlands) and Pawel (Poland)..

That’s just the guys I personally know.

Then there are like 4-5 guys on FB that picked up an M30 recently!!!


Jim P gave me a damaged convertible, but the truth is, since 2016, I’ve been searching for a convertible half heartedly. It had to fall under the right conditions for me to grab one. When Jim’s 1 of 3 convertibles got damaged, he said he didn’t want to part it out and I thought about it for a few days and asked him for it. When I visited Washington, it happened.


After I got my M30, Mark and I talked about convertibles (we always do btw), but now that I have one, I told him I can’t wait to get it going! So we joked about “2019 will be the year of the vert”… and while we were just joking.. I think we will push it !!!


Can’t forget to include my Vert brothers in Japan!
