Fun As Hell To Drive And Cheap To Make It Perform Very Well. — Performance sucks, instead of coming with the SR20DET like they did in Japan it came out with a SOHC or DOHC KA24 engine. The looks I like, but it would have been nice if they brought the Silvia version over here too. The best part.... RWD.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: RWD

Cons: Dont avoid this car...

Nissan 240sx Build — The car sits on blocks, I don't know precisely how the car will end up. The body is sleek but its beginnning to show its age. However its reputation for being s drift monster is what brought me to it. I think the car will look great in pearl white, with an LS3, slammed.

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

Pros: Avalibility of Parts

Cons: It has no engine

Amazing — i love 240's to death and this one was a hatchback with the stock KA24E engine. it overheated once and a while til i got twin slimline fans for it. then the motor blew and i sold the body

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

Pros: goes slideways very easy

Cons: stock engine just didn't have the power i wanted

Awesome!! — 4 cylinder affordable sports car. Amazing handling and control. Easy to drift, especially the S13. Lightweight so power to weight ratio is pretty good. Easy to maintain. Easy to work on. And a Japanese engine swap is EASY. Wiring is a little dicey when you swap the motor. So troubleshooting may be an issue. But it's fun. BUILT not BOUGHT, the only way to go.

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

Pros: Driftabilty

Cons: I got nothing.

89 240sx — was a great platform for a tuner car. the car handled great but did lack a little in the power department. parts were expensive, but was well worth it with the end result in mind. i wish i would have kept it for the potential it had with some money invested in it. hard now to find one in decent shape for a good project.

Pros: great platform

Cons: expensive parts

Nissan 240sx 190k Miles Or More? Salvage Title — My car was a salvage title car with frame damage. Engine is a truck engine. Only 4 cyls... accelerates okay but could use a LOT more punch. dual cam one is better. Brakes good and handles AMAZING. VERY fun to drive. turns on a dime. Make U-turn in exactly 2 lanes. It has lasted since 1989 with more than 190k miles so I am guessing the build quality is good. there are squeaks from the front and rear sway bars and also rattling coming from the timing chain which is common. Interior is lacking and exterior styling is okay. I prefer the newer model exterior a lot more. Gas mileage is good and maintenance is cheap. VERY FUN to drive. drive the hell out of it cuz the engine lasts forever and a day. IRON HARD truck engine.

Pros: legendary handling

Cons: engine power and interior

Cheap Rwd Fun! — Classic utilitarian japanese car. Fun and reliable for cheap. Four cylinders power the rear wheels in a tiny, very agile car. Independent rear suspension, 50/50 weight balance, and disc brakes all around. I would ask for the added control of a LSD (later models had one as an option), but it doesn't really have enough power to need one. These cars define that classic look of early 90s japanese sportscars. Most people prefer the hatchback, but I love my no-spoiler flat trunk coupe.

Pros: Reliable, cheap, RWD, FUN. 2400 pounds.

Cons: 135hp,155tq
