Its Worth Keeping — WWhat's not to like about a car u can do pretty Mich everything and more.This by fare is the car of racers who can't pay much but can trick out a car.ive had my car now for over 4 years now and i think in gonna past it down to my son when its time. This car is exciting to look at and build over and over again and just so many things u can do with this car. Cheap engine swaps r the best for these cars and the fact they have hundreds of these engines just waiting to b used. Turbo and none Turbo engines.If u like to build cars trust me and drift find u one of these ok?

The Cheap Man's Fr Layout Car — Amazing car, great handling and performance for a cheap car, FR layout, cant ever go wrong with that:) Easy to work on, but does develop some rust. Looks grow on you, with those sexy pop up headlights, can't take ur eyes off it.

Pros

The engine is amazingly powerful making the horse power to weight ratio amazing.

Cons

The paint needs to be redone however seeing that this was a project car it just hast happend.

Great Project — Breaks are a work in progress however they will be upgraded before this car gets diven to much because after about 10 min of driving tou can feel break fade. Not listing other modifications because there were alot of them alomst every part of the sespension as well as the interior have been modified to allow for this new engine to both fit and function properly. Dash board is the 350Z's which allowed us to transfer over the electrical system. Other facts about this car are unknown at this time due to the fact that it was driven for the first time sence the start of the project about a week ago.

Its A Perfect Beginners Car — It was a good car for getting back on the road and learning standard. it had the perfect amount of hp for a beginner driver and handled like a dream. Drifting was awesome in my 240 RWD is way better than FWD.

If You Drift- Buy A 240sx — HAHAHAHA Build quality is that of an old hyundai. Slow.... the only thing is the size of the engine compartment and it looks ok. And RWD. There are way better cars out there in the same class as a 240sx. Only good for drifting.

This Is A Great Cheap Car To Go Out And Have Fun In Even In Stock Form. — Like the car a ton once you sit in the cockpit the feeling never leaves. getting stabbed in the side because your driver seat has a tear in it hahaha. The car is easy to mod and just go out and have with with for the price.

Love It Love It — I LOVE my car! Just one of ten thousand made for the USA and Canada. She has 116k miles and I will ride her forever. Nissan outdid themselves when they made this car. Will put in a 5 speed when the tranny goes and maybe leather seats.

Best Entry Level Racer — The 240 is a very well balanced car. It is ideal for drifting due to its lightweight and front engine design. Nissan's are historically reliable and easy to work on and modify. The KA24de engine is surprisingly torquey for a four cylinder. This is the car that I always wanted in high school and I bought this one from a guy who abandoned it under a tree. It had a hole in the engine block and was dented, rusted and molded on the interior. It is a never ending project that is supported by whole family.

Good Car That Would Be Great With More Horsepower — Love the Styling and the fact that it is RWD . Wish the verts had a manual transmission stock, but alas it cannot be completely perfect. The stock engine does leave something to be desired in terms of performance but the handling is superb and even with lousy autozone break pads stops on a dime.
