The Econo Box — I use this to save on gas while commuting back and forth to work. It is one of the only economic car that can hold all he necessary tools for work. This would be a great car for the track, as I drive it up and down 17 everyday I find this car to handle very well.

Pros: great on gas

Cons: noe found so far

The First S Chassis I Owned. Perfect Car In Every Way — This is a drift built street car,the engine is an SR20DET with light mods to it. The car was a great start into drifting and could be upgraded to a full race car, but my second S chassis was the one I went with so this car stayed as a semi street/track car. I would reccomend it to any fan of RWD cars. pwoerful and light (fully stripped) it is a nice little street monster, and the blitz blow off valve makes it that much more impressive

Pros: good power in a decent band for street use. can do both street and track duty, easy to build and fun to work on.

Cons: old cars, hard to find without tons of mileage or bent chassis. many have been abused before being passed down.

It's A Cheap Car To Work On And You Can Make Em Pretty Quick. — It's got awesome acceleration but not a great top speed. Interiors alright but stains easily. Rear wheel drive so great for burnouts and donuts. I actually wrecked this car and believe me it's a sturdy car.

Pros: Acceleration, rear-wheel drive, good mpg

Cons: no top speed

Cheap Cars Aren't All Bad — I bought this car almost 4 years ago now for $50. All i had a problem with when it was bought, was the gas lines leaked....THATS IT! & i've been driving it since with no major problem.

Pros: It continues to drive no matter what!

Cons: The rust :(

Easy Drifting Car = Big Engine Bay + Rear Wheel Drive (240sx) — I did alot to this car as it was not operational when i purchaced it, and after some torture it is back in the same condition. :D I did the normal engine upgrades, but the internals already had plenty or wear befor i got to it, so it now needs a new engine. interior is nothing great to love EXCEPT that nissan always have that keep you strapt to the seat feel that other cars seem to lack. exterior is ok. but the rear tail lights really make this car stick out of the crowd. the cars stock suspension makes the car look rasied.

Pros: Large engine bay for any swaps you may want in the future.
Rear wheel drive
not a gas guzzler
Light weight car

Cons: underpowered
most used 240sx's require you replace the rear suspension bushings or you are most likely going to understand what rear axle hop is the hard way.
