Nnnnnnice — It is such of nice car, good looking, gas saver, everything works.I would hate to sell it. The car really handles great on the road. Specially on the curves.This car is definitely built to last. Very strong. It's sports looks makes it even better. Very good on gas. Maintenance? Yes, oil change, spark plug, etc. Is that the question on maintenance. That is normal on any car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Extrimly nice

Cons: none

87 Nissan 200sx S12 Ca18et — Performance - Accelerates slow, powerband isn't until around 4000 rpm. Stops good, corners good. Build Quality - The cylinder head design is terrible, which commonly results in an exhaust leak. Nothing serious, just annoying. Appearance - Like any other 80s car, it looks terrible. But for an 80s car, it's not too bad Cost of Ownership - I get 20 mpg with 15psi boost. Maintenance is minimal, oil, spark plugs, ect... Fun Factor - Fun to drive, especially in the winter. It's a light car, easy to increase the boost if you have a little knowledge. Overall, not a bad little winter beater

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Turbo Charged. Reliable. Sporty. RWD

Cons: Ugly. Stupid head design. Exhaust leak

Bottom-line On This Car — It is the SE model which has the VG30E (Same as the Z31) with great low end tq, only real woes about the car is the lack of aftermarket support for the car and the super bad design of the rear suspension .

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It is different from the rest and the SE come with the VG

Cons: Parts are hard to come by, no rear camber adjustment

Review — i never thought in my life that i would end up owning one of these, let alone, 4, but yes i do and have, and i absolutely love the car. these cars are becoming classics, and im glad i have a good one. performance is good, handling is great, the looks are subjective, but i like it, and it is really hard to find a nice one!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: light weight, nissan parts interchangability, looks jdmz

Cons: rear irs design, lack of aftermarket, looks like a ae86

Talking Car — The very first car I bought. Paid $300 for it from a co-worker of mine. It was accidented at the front right shock tower, so I thought it would be repairable. It ended up costing too much, along with the fact that it had to pass inspection. I would never forget the yellow window tint on it. It talks to you when your keys are still in the ignition and doors are open.

Pros: Rare car

Cons: Had to scrap it

My Second Car... Greatly Missed! — It was my second car... 5 speed manual and rear-wheel drive! i think i had a little too much fun drifting that car, but all in all, learned many valuable things

Pros: Same V6 motor as the 300ZX, but about 700 pounds lighter!

Cons: Kinda hard to find parts for at times...

Rally Car — not a bad car at all. simalar suspension geometry of a 240sx so easy to toss around and control at the limit

Pros: cheap, reliable, simple

Cons: slow, not fun to drive on concrete
