An 80's Nissan, made from the front of a Silvia S13 and the ass end of a 180SX. This was done because when someone fucked up the front of their 180SX, Silvia S13 fronts were lighter and cheaper. When this style began to grow popular, Nissan factory produced it, but only for a few years.
Guy: "Hey, I like your Sil'Eighty. You make it?"
Jim: "Yea I had a nasty reck a few weeks back, replaced the front."
Sileighty is a Nissan 180SX (240sx in the states) with a Nissan Silvia's headlights and front bumper installed, hence the 'Sil' in front and the 'eighty' rear. The car is popular because it's less costly to replace a Silvia's front than a 180SX's front.
Dam that sileighty's front looks hot drifting around those corners.
