Usually when you see a good-looking chick get out of a nice car with modifications she is getting out on the passenger side. When I met up with the beautiful Kendra Messer she hopped out of her pink 1995 Nissan 240sx on the driver side. I was immediately drawn to the fact that she hit the ground wearing high heels. After a brief introduction I glanced down into the driver-side floorboard and found that this car moved via a manual transmission. Girl got skills right?
The car itself was no slouch. The outfit is in the form of a Duraflex body kit, Seibon carbon fiber hood, and Kouki rear wing. These threads are draped in a color called “Hot Pink.” The paint starts off as a bright red in the shade. Insert a little bit of sunlight and the pink pearl jumps right off the body. The heels on this 240sx are white 17×9.5 Rota Grids. 6000K HIDs help keep this beauty on the runway while the DMAX tail lights keep other models from bumping into her. Tein coilovers and Megan Racing rear upper control arms ensure that her turn at the end of the runway is a graceful one.
Motivating this slim and trim body is none other than a turbocharged Nissan SR20. Kendra was not on her way to Racewars so I am unsure if this engine pulled a premium or not…I digress. Keeping things coordinated is a white valve cover which helps tie in with those good-looking white wheels. If you are strutting your stuff down the runway you need to match right?
The coordination continues into the interior as well. Pink RJS harnesses hold Kendra into her Sparco’s while she navigates each turn via a pink wood grain steering wheel. This beautiful car would have been quite an addition to Aerosmith’s music video and I am certain the guys from the band would have welcomed Kendra as well.
After sitting down with Kendra for a little while I learned that she has to be one of the busiest people I have ever met. Her list of jobs includes managing a tanning salon, bartender, cocktail waitress, model, and she travels quite a bit on the weekends to drift events. Half the time I see a status update on her Facebook page it is about how she landed another gig somewhere.
Kendra got her start with cars out of the fact that things are always changing. She enjoys watching all the new cars and parts hit the dealers and likes that there are so many different genres. A 2004 Chevy Cavalier, a 2008 Pontiac G6, and a white 1995 Nissan 240sx make up the list of cars she has owned not including the current Nissan. Kendra has had this 240sx for roughly 9 months and has logged about 7,000 miles on it. Amazingly enough her dream car is a 1993 Bugatti EB110SS. How many people reading this even know what that car looks like? Kendra had to show me on her phone before I could remember that it even existed.
Looking into the very near future Kendra will be giving her car a facelift. A new body kit, wing, headlights, and an engine bay tuck round out the biggest parts of the list. There is definitely love between her and that pretty Nissan. Something that is rare to find in any girl. I’d like to thank Kendra for coming out into the middle of nowhere to hang out with me in the Texas heat. Her car is almost as good-looking as she is…almost. I am looking forward to what she has in store for the facelift and wish her the best of luck. Please drop by Kendra’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kmess1636 and don’t be a stranger.
